Discover East County

In the East County area of San Diego, you’ll spend your time hiking and exploring the beautiful Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Nature abounds here, and that includes the food. You’ll easily find American farm-to-table bistros with local wineries, French cuisine with cocktails, gastropubs equipped with on-site breweries, and a large beer selection. As the rugged outdoors is paramount, you’ll find many places with fresh meats as well as produce from local farmers. Besides the international cuisine offered, there is also an eclectic blend of hip restaurants offering contemporary takes on classic dishes. East County offers everything from local, family-owned restaurants to diners serving "western grub," all in the vicinity of the scenic and historical view of the San Diego backcountry.
