This Week In ClickBait Lists - San Diego's Best Burritos & Top Scenic Views

August 26, 2018

There are two "best of" lists circulating the San Diego webisphere this week. The Daily Meal website published a list of the top 50 burritos across the country, and seven San Diego spots (the most of any city) were featured. Restaurant reservation king OpenTable also released its ranking of the 100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America, with ten San Diego spots making the cut.

It should be of little surprise that a boatload of San Diego restaurants were featured on either of the above mentioned lists. Our city likely has a higher density of taco shops than any other region of the country, and being a coastal SoCal metropolis, we have a plethora of waterfront dining destinations.

Featured on The Daily Meal's 50 Best Burritos in America 2018 are Taco Surf in Pacific Beach for its carne asada burrito (#47), La Perla Cocina in Pacific Beach for its carne asada burrito (#34), Lucha Libre Taco Shop in Mission Hills for its Surf & Turf burrito (#27), Lolita's in Chula Vista for its Tsunami burrito (#24), El Zarape in University Heights for its lobster burrito, Ortiz's in Point Loma for its California burrito (#8), and Nico's Mexican Food in Ocean Beach for its carne asada burrito (#5). Top honors went to La Taqueria in San Francisco for its Carnitas burrito.

On to OpenTable's 100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America for 2018 list where ten San Diego spots were featured, including Bertrand at Mister A's in Bankers Hill, Duke's in La Jolla, George's at the Cove in La Jolla, Il Fornaio in Coronado, Island Prime on Harbor Island, Jake's in Del Mar, The Marine Room in La Jolla, Pacific Coast Grill in Cardiff, Poseidon in Del Mar and Tom Ham's Lighthouse on Harbor Island. Like The Daily Meal's burrito list, OpenTable could have substituted in many other establishments.
