Pillbox Tavern & Grill Due In Solana Beach By Summer

Dirty Birds owner Leigh Gibson, one of the partners behind the new La Jolla Brewing Company, is teaming up with Mike Garcia, to open a new eatery next to Garcia's Saddle Bar in Solana Beach.

The duo, who once worked together at Sidebar, is taking over the Sushi Solana's 1500-square-foot space, giving it a modern beach bar makeover and renaming it Pillbox Tavern & Grill. Paul Ahern from Location Matters facilitated the lease, and Gibson told Eater that they plan to open by early summer.

We got a peek at the menu, which includes salad, sandwiches, burgers and fish tacos, plus a section dedicated to chicken wings, grilled or fried, with a dozen sauce choices, from garlic-parmesan and teriyaki to wicked hot, which spikes their hot sauce with extra habaneros; on Mondays, you can test your fortitude with an all-you-can-eat wings deal.

Thursdays from 8 p.m. to close, pitchers of beer from most of their ten taps will be $10, which you can enjoy on Pillbox's new patio.
