We rode beach cruisers from San Elijo campground and found this great lunch spot in Del Mar. the line was out the door which is usually a good sign. Delicious sandwiches- we had tuna salad on squaw bread and turkado (turkey and avocado). We shared the sandwiches- they are large and we had to bike back. Great patio for eating.... More

We have eaten many times at the Carlsbad location and this was just as good. Good sandwiches and good local beer. Great location.

We stopped here for sandwiches on a day in La Jolla and we still talk about the food we had there all these months later. The salad dressing on my salad was best vinaigrette I have had in my whole life. We had huge tuna fish sandwiches and the most wonderful organic iced tea. As I remember the price was... More

In a world of one-hit-wonders, it is SO refreshing that Board & Brew has stood the test of time and never-for-one-moment backed down on serving a high quality product during their decades of success. I always order the Turkado and Board & Brew always comes through to kill my craving: THANK YOU! You guys never let me down!

A great sandwich, but you better split it with someone unless you are really hungry. My favorite is the turk-avocado. They also have a great spicy Baja chicken sandwich. Fast service, perfect cheap eats for the beach or eat outside on the patio. You'll be back!

We were on vacation and visited B&B three times during the week! The menu is limited but covers the basics from meat to poultry to veggie sandwiches. They are delicious but you can elevate them with their secret sauce! The lemonade soda and brewed iced tea are also very good. The potato salad has pickle (?) or some kick in... More

I make sure to go here every time my kids come home from college it's always been a favorite local hang out I love the turkey club sandwich toasted. It's a bit of a dump but it's great for a quick sandwich.

We were looking for a brewpub in Del Mar and this came up on our search. Turns out there aren't any beers on tap, but it was a great lunch stop with freshly made sandwiches. We had the turkey, avocado sandwich which is served on sourdough bread, and a southwestern wrap made with grilled chicken. Both were very good and... More
