Nearby Restaurants


Filippi's Pizza Grotto

Need space for a crowd and a family-friendly vibe where the little ones can run around? Filippi's on Friars Road is perfect.


Oggi's Pizza & Beverage Co

2245 Fenton Pkwy Ste 101, San Diego, CA 92108

The local pizza chain goes all-out for Chargers games and always draws a crowd. The Mission Valley location is so close to the stadium that you might even be able to hear crowd cheering after touchdowns.


Islands Restaurants

Go for the game, stay for the fries. We love the salt and pepper combo and the extra large basket size.


Dave & Buster's

It's like Disneyland for adults, with arcade games, video games and lots of TVs tuned in football.


Gordon Biersch

5010 Mission Center Road, San Diego, CA 92108

There's no reason to miss out on those potent garlic fries, just 'cause you don't have a ticket to the game. Grab a seat at the bar at Gordon Biersch in Mission Valley and order up.

A classic San Diego hangout for steak and eggs, steak and potatoes and steak and anything else you want.
