Each year over 100 San Diego restaurants offer delicious meals at reduced set prices. While the participating restaurants and offerings change from year to year, it’s important to note there are usually TWO (2) restaurant weeks per year. The first generally occurs during the later half of January, while the second restaurant week occurs in late September.
San Diego Restaurant Week generally lasts eight (8) days, and participating restaurants are from every neighborhood in the city. It’s a great time to check out a restaurant across town that you’ve been dying to try, all without having to pay full price!
