Vinz is a great place for lunch. We had the fish and chips, onion rings and tropical ice tea. Excellent presentation, taste and service at a fair price.

Recently my husband and I stopped for lunch at Vinz. Our waitperson suggested the burger. We were not disappointed. It was by far the best burger we have had in North County San Diego. I would highly recommend satisfying your burger craving at Vinz.

From their excellent deli pizza to the dining room fare, Vinz brand food is tasty, especially if you prefer libations with your meal. Can't wait to hang out there on Friday nights during "Cruisin' on the Grand".

Love this place for dining outside on a warm day. Excellent salads and wood-fired pizzas--my personal favs! Lots of good options on the menu, but happy hour (after 3pm?) for a late lunch and cold drink outside is the way to go.

VINZ is a great place for lunch or dinner. Delicious, food is well prepared, staff is very friendly. Beer and wine selections are vast. Try the goat cheese and oyster shooters (maybe not at the same time =) but try them!

The burger is to die for and a huge selection of wines -- try a fleet of either beer or wine. Service was a little slow and was a little pricey.

My two friends and I went here after a concert. I had one of their pizzas, which was very good and enough for two people. My one friend had a hamburger and truffle oil fries and she said both were excellent; however, my other friend...More
