Encontro

Gastropub

Award-Winning

Eater Essential

Overview & Photos

While Encontro may stem from the Spanish verb 'Encontrar' – “To meet, to find, or to discover,” make no mistake about it, this is American comfort food at its finest. Owner and Executive Chef Jason Hotchkiss brings profound culinary expertise stemming from iconic names in the food world: Cohn Restaurant Group, Bottega Louie, L’Entrecote de Paris and Café Kati among others.


In addition to phenomenal chicken, fresh greens and spectacular homemade sauces, Encontro's bread is a truly historic favorite. The recipe was handed down by the famous Pat & Oscar, who built a legacy around addictive breadsticks. And as crazy as it sounds, the bread here may be even better...

Local Favorite

Overview & Photos

We've been cooking up inventive handcrafted burgers for more than 10 years, earning such as strong reputation as a local favorite that our regulars come in on the daily, and Guy Fieri himself paid a visit on the iconic Food Network show 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.' You're going to love our suped-up burgers, from the truffle made with white truffle oil to the Cajun sporting our housemade smoked chipotle sauce. Vegetarians will enjoy our delicious salads, and everyone can come together on those awesome parmesan fries!


We've got a laid-back 'classic San Diego' ambiance, where you can watch sports from the bar or enjoy some great people watching from our patio. However you enjoy it, make the experience even better with one of San Diego's legendary craft breweries on tap. And while our tasting menu shows off our signature creations, we also feature a whole line of exotic burgers, made with everything from alligator to camel!

Helpful Info

Tour Dates, Restaurant Time Windows and Party Sizes

To book this tour, first select your desired tour date. Another box will then appear, prompting you to select your restaurant time windows. There will only be one option available to select. 


You will be able to visit each place in any order, at any valid time. For example, if you see 'Restaurant ABC: 11a - 6p, 8 - 10p  |  Restaurant XYZ: 12 - 9p,' you can arrive at at Restaurant ABC anytime from 11am - 6pm or 8 - 10pm, and you can arrive at Restaurant XYZ anytime from 12 - 9pm.


If your desired tour date is not available, the restaurants are either closed or do not accept TastePro bookings on that day. If this happens, please choose a different tour date or select a different restaurant. Restaurants will not accept TastePro bookings outside the date listed on your booking confirmation. 


If you arrive outside the time window listed on your booking confirmation, the restaurant has full discretion in whether to seat you. If they are unable to seat you, you can request your tasting menu to-go. Please refer to our refund policy for more details. 


TastePro bookings are only valid for the number of people listed on your booking confirmation. If you show up with more people than you paid for, those additional guests will not be served. They can simply book this same tour for the same date, and will receive a separate booking confirmation to join the group. If you show up with fewer people than you paid for, you will not be issued a refund for the members of your group not present. Please refer to our refund policy for more details. 


Drink Pairings

Most restaurants offer drinks and other add-ons to enhance the dining experience. These offerings are often significantly discounted compared to what they would cost if ordered in-person, and we strongly recommend pre-purchasing them while booking. You'll find drink and add-on selections for each restaurant in the booking box, below the area where you select your tour date and above the Book Now button. The tour price will update automatically with each selection.


Please note that drinks and other add-ons are sold individually. For example, if you’re booking for four people and want everyone to have drinks, select 4 drinks at each stop. If only one person wants drinks at a particular place, select 1 drink at that stop. If two people want drinks there, select 2 drinks, etc. Drinks are full-size pours unless otherwise noted.


Anyone who consumes alcoholic beverages must have a valid ID proving they are of legal drinking age. No refunds will be issued for people who pre-purchase drinks and are unable to present valid ID. Please drink responsibly.

Why do some tours have time windows that exclude peak meal times?

Restaurants want to provide the best experience for each of their guests. TastePro guests do not have reservations at the restaurants they visit, so if a restaurant is routinely full during peak meal periods, they will likely choose not to accept TastePro bookings during those windows. Most standard food tours also take place during non-peak hours, to best control crowds and wait times. 


If a restaurant is available during meal peak hours and you visit at those times, you may be required to wait for a table. TastePro is not responsible for guests missing arrival windows due to unexpected wait times. If you are concerned about wait times, we recommend taking your tour during non-peak hours or requesting your tasting menu selections as a to-go order.


Please also note that restaurant availability is displayed in the restaurant's local time. Plan accordingly if you are booking from a different time zone. 


Can I make substitutions or order additional items? 

The restaurant has full discretion on the extent to which substitutions are allowed. If you don’t like the options listed on a restaurant's tasting menu, we recommend booking a different tour.


Most restaurants will allow TastePro guests to order additional items from the standard menu during their tour. Please note that you are responsible for payment, tax and tip for any additional items not included in your tasting menu.
