I had lunch at Lazy H after visiting the Palomar Mountain Observatory. It has a beautiful tree-shaded setting off Highway 76. The restaurant and accompanying motel feel like a step back in time to a more settled and gracious era. White tablecloths out here in...More

This restaurant should NOT be #3. It's the BEST in the area, a very pleasant surprise since I moved to the Pauma Valley area. Their food is excellent, staff very friendly and Henry is TOPS! We've always had a very pleasant meal and, going back...More

Local restaurant with a very "old world" charm. White tablecloths with lots and lots of collectible liquor bottles on shelves below the ceiling. There is a live tree growing through the ceiling in the bar. Henry, the bartender, makes the best Margaritas in the county....More

The restaurant is in an older building that is rather quaint and it is set on a beautifu, well groomed property. Views from the restaurant windows are very nice. It is a very quiet, clean environment. This was our first trip here on the recommendation...More

Food was delicious, service was fast, and the food was hot when it arrived at the table. We skipped dessert, we were too full from dinner. Next time we'll save room!

Built in the 1920's, this ranch style restaurant and motel is located along Highway 76 in the back county of San Diego. Formerly a sleepy stretch of road, Highway 76 now connects 4 major casino resorts: Valley View, Harrah's Rincon, Casino Pauma, and Pala. Most visitors drive right by the Lazy H, those who do stop in are treated to a step back in time. The dining room is right out of the 50s, the menu is varied and wholesome. Weekends are busiest, when locals come out to dine.
