True North Tavern
3815 30th Street, San Diego, CA 92104
Located in the heart of North Park, off University Avenue, True North Tavern is a bar with great atmosphere. Definitely more of a casual get-together place, it has great character.
Spacious interiors, wood floors, and comfortable leather booths offer great views of the whole bar and the many television screens.
Characteristic to many bars and taverns in downtown and the outer reaches of downtown, the food is superb. Bar food with a fresh, upscale twist.
True North is perhaps best known for their signature tater tots, served on the side of many of the dishes on the menu. Tater tots can often come off too greasy and tasting like the inferior little brother of the mighty french fry, but the tots at True North put all that to rest.
The burgers, sandwiches, and appetizers are flavorful and well-prepared.
An ample supply of wine, beer, and cocktails contributes to the jovial atmosphere. You can dine and drink inside or outside on one of the two patios. Shoot a little pool, chat, or relax with someone special. True to be told, while True North might not seem like a romantic escape on the outside, the noise level encourages you to lean in close to hear your dining companions.
The service is fast, friendly, and easy. Stop into True North before heading downtown for the night. Even on a busy Friday, you can find a table and get served in a timely manner.
