Welcome to the first episode of Fan Approved Places to Eat in SD.  

We created this vlog to help you answer that age-old question: where do you want to eat?

We’ve got new spots, old stand-bys, and everything in between - I put myself through school working as a waiter and bartender, so I know something about food, believe me.

San Diego’s food scene is diverse and spread out from North County to South Bay and all the way out to East County. There are tons of places here to discover.  

I’m not a foodie but I do know what wine goes with what dish. My tastes are simple and if we try something exotic I might bring help along for moral support.  

We want to hear from you. Let us know where your favorite spots are to eat. We want to try them! Drop us a line on Facebook and Twitter so we can visit your San Diego favorites.  

Our first stop on this San Diego food was San Diego is Public House 131 in Scripps Ranch.  It’s a brand new spot and the folks we talked to were excited to have a new place to eat in their neighborhood.

It is a straight-up classic public house with a long bar and intimate spaces to relax with company.  Lots of craft beer on tap and a menu that has something for everyone.

I had the BBQ ribs and they were as good as advertised. The folks with me raved about the scallop and shrimp dish and their version of Cuban Sandwich.  

It was busy on a Sunday afternoon during the football game.  It's not a sports bar that overwhelms you with walls of TV's, but they had enough screen surface to fit the decor while letting me keep an eye on the game.  

Definitely female and family friendly, we saw tables of families eating lunch. I could see my wife and her friends meeting up there for bloody marys on the weekend.  

They are open Monday through Friday from 11 am to 11 pm.  Saturday and Sunday they open at 8 am for breakfast.  The address is 10393 Spring Canyon Rd. San Diego, CA 92131.  You can reach them at 858-537-0890. 

Check out their website Public House 131 for their menu and info.
