Okay so I went to the one is San Francisco last month and was highly disappointed at the atmosphere and service. However, this time i was nearing the end of my trip in San Diego, and I needed to find a place with Pliny of draft, and i figured i would bust through the grossness and rudeness to get one here, but oh wow was i surprised!

Atmosphere: small bar and very busy, however it did not smell like stale beer, something i can't say for in the SF location.

Service: very friendly and patient....two things that the SF location absolutely did not have. I was very relieved when dealing with the 2 female bartenders here, both were very nice and alert.

Quality/Selection: i hate using this word, but the selection is "epic". there aren't too many places with this impressive of a list of rares both on tap and in bottles. there were so many rare beers, that it really made me groan quite a bit.

Food: just perfect. I had cajun style sausage along with the macaroni and cheese. Paired with my HOTD Adam and RR PtE....I was in heaven....

Best beer selection! Consistently great beers to try. Food isn't my favorite, but vegetarians can't have it all sometimes. Also, can be extremely loud with the music and people screaming over said music. I can't wait for their expansion! Love Toronado on quiet afternoons the best.
