California Kebab, a popular fast-casual restaurant located directly next to San Diego State University, has closed. California Kebab opened next to the SDSU campus in 2009 as a healthy alternative to the abundant fast food options in the area. The small Mediterranean style restaurant quickly gained in popularity among students and faculty alike because of its unique menu options, focus on fresh ingredients and house-made sauces.

“We decided to focus on creating the best possible environment for enjoying craft beer and healthy food from scratch. As our concept and menu continue to evolve, we didn’t want to be hindered by trying to maintain a consistent image between two very different locations, ” said Pierson.
Pierson and Hill have also installed an on-site brewery, which operates as Amplified Ale Works. The brewery has received high praise from the craft beer community since its first batch was brewed this past November.
California Kebab & Beer Garden is located at 1450 Mission Blvd. #208, in Pacific Beach. California Kebab & Beer Garden is open 7 days a week from 11am to 11 pm Sunday through Wednesday, and until midnight Thursday through Saturday.
