Restaurants

Tuktan Thai, Tacos El Gordo de Tijuana BC, Baba Foods (Mediterranean), and Italianissimo Trattoria are just a few of the dining options that contribute to a cultural smorgasbord of heavenly cuisine in Chula Vista. Though restaurants are dotted throughout the neighborhood, you'll find the widest selections along Third and Broadway.

The risotto special with frutti di mare will tickle your senses with texture and flavor at Italianissimo Trattoria. With one of the largest populations in the city of San Diego, rural Chula Vista has developed a well-deserved reputation for a growing, thriving cultural arts collective.

Newcomers searching for friendly people, cheap beer and shuffleboard will be hard-pressed to find a better hangout than The Canyon Sports Pub and Grill, which serves mixed drinks and hard liquor to patrons who want to have a good time. The Sleep Train amphitheater on Entertainment Circle is a great outdoor venue for live concerts and features acts such as the Kings of Leon, and Mumford and Sons. On the flip side, Mi Barra and the Bancroft Bar both contribute to local, up-and-coming bands wanting a chance to promote their own style of music.
