Hey Guy!

I have not been to Porky's yet but I was near by when the staff of the neighboring supermarket thought the place was on fire, but relealized that the owners had lef the smoker on in the back for some reason over night without turning on the exhaust fan. Made for a interesting night... It's up in the heights so i am not certian that most of the labsters would make it up this way since it's by my place and i think yours.

Some other BBQ places to check out:

+100 for the Frontier!

Brown's Brewery on River Street (downtown) has great food and good beer, plus an outdoor patio where smoking is allowed.

Troy Ale House at 680 River Street (a little further out of town to the north) has excellent beer on tap, good food, but the best wings on the planet. The "capital district's hottest wings" really are a masterpiece, but not for the faint of heart (or bowels).

Plum Blossom chinese restaurant up Hoosick Street (Rt. 7) is good cheap eats, and quick. Limited booze selection, but a quality asian place.

For pizza you want I Love New York pizza on 4th street.

Mitch Grant:
Carlsbad is home to the 4 Seasons Aviara Resort , a popular convention site, and just about the only one in the county north of downtown San Diego.....other than the La Costa resort. All these directions apply to both places. You will need a car to get to almost anything worthwhile, but you are only a 10 to 20 minute drive from several good restaurants. Here are a few good seafood and sushi places which I am intimately (lol) familiar with:

South of the resort:

Mister Sushi in Encinitas (all you can eat for 20.00 to 25.00)

Samurai Sushi at Loma Sante Fe and the 5 freeway (possibly the very best sushi in the county)

Seafood Market across the street from Del Mar Racetrack on Via De La Valle (great seafood!)

Other types of food:

Tuscany in La Costa has good Italian food

Or just drive south on Coast Highway (101) starting in Encinitas

North of the resort:

Kings Seafood at Palomar Airport Road and the 5 Freeway (yes, it's actually a small chain, but it's quite good)

Sushi Huku on San Marcos Blvd. in San Marcos (another all you can eat for 20 bucks contestant in the San Diego Sushi "price wars")

Hyuga Sushi just down the street from Sushi Huku (a little more expensive, and worth it)

Katsu (also just down the street) is very good but a little pricier

Other types of food:

"Restaurant Row" in San Marcos is on the same street as the 3 sushi joints above. You can find just about anything there.

Other nearby good values for those visiting California:
(my favs while trying to stay within your "per diem" rate)

Best Chain Restaurant standard American cuisine = Claim Jumper (actually this one is not cheap, but I am always amazed at how good the food is!)

Best Cheap burgers = In and Out
Even Better burgers = Islands, Fuddruckers

Best Pizza = Oggis or Leucadia Pizza

Best Salads = Souplantation

And don't forget that if you need any type of sound, lighting or backline, my shop is 20 minutes away!

Happy Eating!
Mitch

Sushi Fever,
7985 W Sahara Ave # 105,
Las Vegas, NV 89117
(702) 838-2927

Worth the drive, fantastic fish, great friendly attitude, the best roll selection I've ever seen, all at per diem prices.

Noras
6020 W Flamingo Rd # 10, Las Vegas
(702) 365-6713

Neighborhood Italian, fun enough for a group of techs on an evening out, romantic enough for a date.  Be sure to book if you can't wait.  Prices are v. reasonable, huge Seafood Diablo was around $18.
