Dirty Del's – The Ciabatta bread was absolutely wonderful. I had the option of adding any veggies to the sandwich and asked to have a little bit of all of them. Perfect mixture of fresh veggies, fresh bread and quality meats and cheeses. A very well constructed sandwich. Complimented by a tasty dill pickle. The same can be said for all of the items reviewed here. Brian “Dirty Del” Delprino knows his sandwiches. And he should, he has been dreaming about this business long before it opened about two years ago. For what he has added to the San Diego Restaurant scene, and a right near Petco Park, add to the mix that he is an SDSU you Grad and one can almost forgive him for his OC roots.
Dirty Del’s is small but its impact is big. 6 flat panels are spread around ensuring that on those packed nights (and there are many) one is guarantee to see the game. Heck, the pro’s both Charger and Padre do occasionally pop in too. “It’s the happy hour that really pulls the crowd in,” says bartender/server Lauren Shortliffe. Those run Monday to Saturday from 4 to 7pm and again from 10pm to midnight, and all day Sunday. The draw - 1$ shots, 2$ Bud/Bud Lite, and 4$ cocktails.
I disagree, I think it is the sandwiches. Dirty Del’s should be on your list of places to visit.
No-frills pub fits well into the East Village ballpark scene with cheap drinks, simple sandwiches and a built-in set of regulars from the towering condos above. – In Short
If that "other" pub one block south draws rowdy youngsters who want to oogle plaid-clad lassies as much as they want to watch the big game, then Dirty Dels is a respite for the rest of us. It's a smaller bar tucked into the bottom of a high-rise condo building on 10th Avenue with a smaller menu of classic hoagie sandwiches and a few salads. We love the different take on sides with mini portions of peanuts, sunflower seeds, pretzels, cracker jacks and corn nuts. There's always a few beers on tap and a few friendly sports fans tuned into the game at the bar.
