Weekends call for friends, family, and good eats! Nothing beats heading out to grab a bite along with a drink and great company. We want to share our favorite three spots in La Mesa to grab a drink with good friends.
The Pioneer BBQ
BBQ, burgers, and brews, need we say more? If any of those three interest you, you have to check out the newest BBQ and brew restaurant in La Mesa, The Pioneer BBQ. With a laid back atmosphere, The Pioneer is the perfect dinner spot to grab a brew with some delicious BBQ. Whether you’re a pulled pork or burger fan, mac and cheese and cornbread are always the best sides to accompany your meal. However, you may want to spice things up by getting the Smoked Pulled Pork Dirty Fries, which include mac and cheese on these decadent fries. Is your mouth watering yet? Head out to The Pioneer to satisfy all your BBQ cravings, while washing it all down with an ice cold brew.
