San Diego: The Crack Shack

An all-day menu of chicken and egg-based dishes – including fried chicken, chicken sandwiches and deviled eggs (plus a full bar) – are served at this local chain by the team behind Juniper & Ivy with locations in Encinitas and Little Italy. Modern furnishings, a giant chicken sculpture and a bocce ball court make the space hip and happening.
Must-order: Firebird sandwich — a potato roll with spicy fried chicken thigh, Cool Ranch spread, crispy onions and pickles
Insider tip: Like the original Little Italy location, this new restaurant features a bocce court, but also look for a kid-friendly sandbox.
