Our Menu

The Spot is best known for our 'highly customizable' Burger menu, unique take on Chicago-style Pizza, full service bar, and Late Night Dinning.



Established in 1978.

The Spot restaurant has the distinction of being the oldest continuous restaurant location in La Jolla, serving locals since 1915.

The La Jolla Historical Society Archive holds vintage photographs of the building over its near century long service. Over time the horses and carts seen in those photos have given way to fancy cars and tourists from all over the world.

Originally a restaurant location in Evanston, Illinois - The Spot moved to the La Jolla Cove in 1978, bringing along with it the famous Chicago style pizza, burgers, and family-friendly dishes.
