Read about U City local Diego’s Cantina, Rooftop Terrace Bar at the Moonrise Hotel, Taco Buddha, Winslow’s Table and more.


Diego’s CantinaThe tile-accented interior here is just as vibrant as the colorful Mexican dishes. Most are the traditional but surprises like queso flameado and costra de chiles asados arepas add to the allure, as does a range of tequila and mescal. The elevated sidewalk tables are popular, weather permitting. 630 North and South.

Rooftop Terrace Bar at the Moonrise HotelOne of the region’s few public rooftops with an unobstructed view of the sunset, it boasts what may be the world’s largest manmade moon. 6177 Delmar.

Taco BuddhaAn unassuming street corner in U. City is home to one of the most alluring sidewalk patios (and some of the best street tacos) in town. 7405 Pershing.

Winslow’s TableJust west of Delmar’s main drag, Vicia’s Tara and Michael Gallina present excellent food, drink, and pastries in a peaceful haven in a quiet part of U. City. The patio is especially charming at night, with the lights casting a warm glow on the trees and brick building. 7213 Delmar.
