This place is also the home of Amplified Ale Works. The tanks and brewing system are right up front. The sign says California Kebab at the end of Pacific Beach Dr. on the second floor of the strip shopping center.

They typically have just a couple or few Amplified beers. The dozen or more guest taps include the spectrum of San Diego County beers like Stone, Green Flash, Societe, and Monkey Paw, plus some from "up north" like Craftsman, Eagle Rock, and Telegraph. Plus a few more national beers on the order of Firestone Walker Wookey Jack, and a couple of Belgians.

I have enjoyed the food, which features regular kebabs and salmon, steak, chicken, and veggie skewers. The plates include a variety of sides, like rice, hummus, salad, and felafel, all rather spicy, but a welcome change from the usual fried bar food. But of course they have piles of french fries that people seem to like, and fried zucchini.

This place has one of the few really nice decks in the beach areas, and the glass windbreak keeps it comfortable even on breezy evenings. They added the inevitable heaters so it can be quite unpleasant with the gas fumes blowing in the sea breeze. The inside is cramped and noisy with dogs laying in the narrow aisle in the restaurant.
