Another stop on my "return to SoCal" trip. Why anyone travelling by car between S.D. and L.A. wouldn't stop here or Solana Beach is beyond me.
Atmosphere is old school pizza parlor. Order at the counter (or the bar) and wait for the announcment, "Pizza for ___." Family friendly. Carlsbad I think is the biggest of the Pizza Ports.
Jeff Bagby at this location makes some seriously good beers. I had "The Empire Strikes Black" a big stout brewed by port brewers @ Sierra Nevada's facility and a Poor Man's DIPA. My travelling companions had, so I got to try, the hefeweizen, the weizen bock and an Amber. The amber kind of missed the mark but the others were very good.
Food is pizza and salads and some apetizers. The pizza is good but not great. Thick doughy crust and the sauce is kind of straight tomato and needing some more spice for my taste.
There's also a bottle shop next door that sells Port brewing beers.
Very worth a trip if you're at all near here.
