We're going to San Diego on Feb. 20 for a week, with my PA daughter. Any suggestions for good and safe restaurants, or any to avoid? All suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

Feel free to mention a few chains that might be safe too.

redtruck,
We're probably going to head to San Diego w/the kids for Spring Break, so here are some older threads I found on San Diego restaurants.

Please share your experiences upon your return. San Diego is a great time!

Restaurants were all ok in SD, better than I thought (in terms of pa). All the theme parks (zoo, legoland, seaworld, universal) were all ok too, even though some had p&b sandwiches on the menu.
P.S. I thought SD was very expensive though, the same or more than in Toronto, but in US dollars!

Just got back from Spring Break trip w/the kids to Legoland, Seaworld, and Wild Animal Park.
We packed lunches at all three places, and weren't questioned about bringing in food (although we had doctor's note should we have had to explain our situation).
We also stayed at a Residence Inn, so we had kitchen facilities at our disposal and did feed the kids in the room a few nights.
For eating out, we ate at In 'N' Out Burger (very safe - manager was very aware, and explained that one of the staff had severe peanut allergies) and Rubio's. For a change of pace, DW and I wanted to have one non-fast food meal [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img], and we did eat at the Karl Strauss Brewery and Restaurant in Carlsbad (right by Legoland). Spoke with Chris, one of the managers - they were very accommodating and researched the kids menu (pulling labels for our review), and discussed cross-contamination issues with the chef. It was also comforting that they had dealt with previous requests from food allergic diners before....
They were able to prepare a safe meal for my PA son (they do have a kids menu there), and it was quite enjoyable.
Too bad I had to go back to work this week [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

We went to the In 'N' Out Burger located in Carlsbad. It's right off the highway I-5, near the famous flower fields.
There are a number of locations in the San Diego area. I simply printed off the ones I was most likely to visit from their website; they usually include a mini-map, phone number, and directions to the location at the site.

As far as In-N-Out goes, their corporate office was very helpful to me.
I love In-N-Out. I grew up in the San Gabriel Valley, where there is an In-N-Out in practically every city. I hate having to drive so far to get to one these days.
