The Truckstop

“Our food is larger than your appetite at Truckstop, where we’re known for serving up a hearty helping of Southern hospitality.”

Looking for a traditional breakfast with a twist? Look no further! The Truckstop in Pacific Beach surpassed all my expectations when we decided to dine here.

Hippie Hash

The Hippie Hash

We started our Saturday brunch off with a bottle of champagne that did not disappoint. The Truckstop does not just hand you a cheap bottle of bitter champagne; this was sweet and slightly dry making it a  perfect compliment to their mango, watermelon puree. They actually freshly squeeze a new concoction of farm-fresh fruit on a regular basis so you can construct a new mimosa flavor with every visit.

I had the Hippie Hash, which was better than I could have imagined. Trying to go a little on the healthy side, this dish comes piled high with spinach, mushrooms, asparagus, goat cheese, citrus hollaindaise and rosemary potatoes – I added avocado. The potatoes were perfectly crispy and the veggies’ were cooked just right. This skillet of deliciousness may not have been the healthy meal I was looking for, but it was completely satisfying in every way.

Chicken and Waffles

Chicken & Waffles

My sister had the chicken and waffles. Whether you’re a chicken and waffle connoisseur or have never tried this surprisingly perfect pair, The Truckstop’s recipe will make it hard to order anything else on the menu. The chicken is a boneless breast pounded thin and coated with their own mildly spiced seasoning and deep fried. It’s then piled on a thick golden malted waffle which they actually refer to as mud flaps – a much deserved nickname considering their size. Obviously, my sister couldn’t even wait for me to snap a picture before she decided to dig in.

The Truckstop is located in Pacific Beach (where The Eggery used to be). I know this can be quite the drive, but it is totally worth it! I recommend taking the 8 West to Mission Bay Dr/Sports Arena Blvd to avoid traffic on the infamously busy Garnet Ave. See below for my recommended driving route. From El Cajon this drive is about 22 minutes.

  1. Follow I-8 W to W Mission Bay Dr in Point Loma, San Diego. Take the W Mission Bay Dr/Sports Arena Blvd exit from I-8 W
  2. Turn right onto W Mission Bay Dr
  3. Keep left to continue on Ingraham St
  4. Turn left onto Pacific Beach Dr
  5. Turn right to stay on Pacific Beach Dr
  6. Turn right onto Mission Blvd (Destination will be on the left)
