Overrated. Obnoxiously loud music on a quiet Sunday evening. The draft list was okay, but there wasn’t anything to get too fired up about. The food menu looked boring 10 years ago and was priced like we were in London. The crowd was a bunch of hipster twenty-somethings twiddling their phones solo. If Tiger!Tiger! could up the quality of their draft list, I wouldn’t even think about going here. Major downer for my first Toronado experience.

Fun location, lots of great beer places and stuff in the area. Food is pretty good and beer selection is one of the most diverse in the San Diego area. Great beers on tap that will make any beer lover happy. Somewhere everyone must stop while in the North Park area!

Toronado SD is along a street that has some great craft beer offerings. As with the other Toronados, they have a really great tap list. This particular Toronado has a nice staff and is much larger than the original. If you are in SD, you need to come here to hang out for a while.

Handy location that could be in any city. Affordable rent, great staff, lots of beer and a faithful clientele. Have to know your stuff as board does not show ABV or style. Wide open place. Lots of tables and was able to park.

Nicer building and atmosphere than SF. Probably not as hip...but the burgers are good and the beer selection is fantastic.

Un incontournable à San diego avec sa liste de fûts imposante et ses nombreuses bouteilles. L’ambiance est correcte, la bouffe semble solide pour ce que c’est et la localité est plus qu’adéquate. Par contre, e peux pas dire que je suis charmé comme je le suis avec plusieurs autres débits de bières dans les environs.

Visited on a Friday as soon as they opened. Service was good, but we practically had the place to ourselves (which was nice!). Nice tap list and the food was good.

Visited during SDBW mid afternoon, basic wooden place, nothing special, music didn’t really add to the ambiance, seemed to be summarily ignored by the serving staff who seemed happier to chat amongst themselves. At least it saved on a tip! Beer selection OK but nothing too spectacular. Overrated.

Visited on Wednesday 12/11/14 around 3pm. No real charm in the venue itself, just a medium sized place with the bar on the right as you enter, wooden floor, table seating, beers listed above the bar. The place was pretty busy and the clientele seemed to be made largely from a local heavy metal crowd. The music was too loud and shit! Crap 80’s music and naff UK stuff, Come on Eileen - really !?! Service generally seemed disinterested but I’d come to expect this from other reviews and having visited the SF bar so no real shock factor here. Beer selection was good, don’t get me wrong, but for a UK ticker I think there were only 6 or 7 new ones for me, seemed to be a lot of Pizza Port beers on the list which, when planning to visit a number of PP venues, weren’t of much interest either. Pints only, no small pours - great ! I really wanted a full pint of 8% beer at 3pm with a full days ticking laying ahead! Ok - I can get bars not wanting to piss about with 3 or 4oz pours, but at least offer a 10 or 12oz option as opposed to 16! Overall a let down. Too loud, not that many ticks on tap, crap service, pints only. Living off a reputation that it doesn’t really deserve as far as I’m concerned!

I guess I just had my expectations too high. After visiting Max’s in Baltimore, no CA pub that I’ve been to even comes close. But Tornado was smallish. Had about 20 taps going. It was a Sunday night and so was fairly empty. Almost all the taps I’d had before so I asked for a Hair of the Dog Adam, which was on the tap list. Of course, they didn’t have it, so I had to go with a second choice. It isn’t that hard to keep an updated list. Loud music. Disinterested server. I’m not sure why anyone would go to this place. I think too many of these CA pubs are living off of their memories.
