“Thin crust”
Reviewed 21 January 2012

Pizza would have been better if crust was crispy. Not sure why edge was crispy but interior crust was soggy. $22 for large with 4 toppings. Service was awesome and beer was ice cold.

“Great stuff, but don't go basic...”
Reviewed 20 January 2012

I checked out Basic the last time I was in San Diego for a conference. The ambiance is interesting, definitely "trendy", with a very warm feel despite the open floor plan.

I came in at Happy Hour, which is a great deal, seeing as how they actually put out free pizza samples. I tried the pepperoni and cheese, and it was good, but nothing to rave about.

As I had a long flight ahead that night, I opted to go for my own pizza and had a fired eggplant, roasted red pepper and ricotta pizza and it was absolutely fabulous. So in essence, if you're going be a bit adventurous and you'll be rewarded.

Good service, good beer. Decent pricing. Would recommend.

“Great Pizza & Salad”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

Great place for pizza - you have to try the mashed potato pizza - yummy. Salad is good value - big bowl for $9. Lots of eye candy strolling around :-)

“Great food and location”
Reviewed 1 January 2012

Picked this place for our road trip on the basis of TA and everything was great - pizza, salad and cocktails n mason jars. Be aware that this place is probably impossible to get into during baseball games since Petco Park is next door. And the fact that they ONLY serve the aforementioned.

It is split between bar, art gallery and pizza joint and the stereo is cranked up to 11 at the bar and the is no separation so it is LOUD and if you don't like young urban mix find another place.

“Fantastic food, atmosphere, and pricing. Locals and visitors love this place”
Reviewed 29 December 2011

Well, whether you live in San Diego, or are simply visiting, BASIC is a place you must put on your visit list.

Great food, very cold beers, unbeatable service by friendly people, and seriously....Your experience will be a pleasant one. If you are visiting, you will make this a place you will visit again before you leave.

Comfortable and fun for anyone, and a fun place to people watch, BASIC nailed the business model...great food and drinks at great prices, with top shelf service and friendliness.

San Diegans LOVE this place. Come see why
