Nice looking place but has an abnormal layout. Outside patio area is quaint if not small. Service was good and the staff knowledgeable. Good food selection and the prices were very reasonable. Beer slection was just as impressive with a huge array in all styles. Food was delicious. Nice place.

Urge has a typical gastropub ambiance. Itís spacious and clean with some cool art on the walls and cool music on the speakers. The beer list is extensive with full pours and smaller pours available for everything on tap. There are a lot of interesting and rare drafts and bottles with emphasis on west coast brews, specifically local stuff. The food. . . Iím not sure I can find the words to describe how delicious the food is. We ate the garbage burger which is a beef/smoked wild boar patty with beer cheese and sauted mushrooms and onions, a beet and goat cheese salad, mind-blowing ale-cheddar soup, with a side of some kind of broccoli hybrid. "Delicious" does not do justice to what my tastebuds experienced. Come here to have a great beer and make sure to come hungry.

Very good new gastropub in a strip mall right on the outskirts of San Diego. The selection is pretty solid. I tried the Angry Panda from Airdale and a Hoptimum from Sierra Nevada, and my girlfriend had a Curiuex from Allagash and Pere Jaques from Goose Island. Food was really good, and the chef was experiementing with different hamburger pattys (half bacon, half sausage, half wild boar, etc). The appetizers were great as well. They seem a bit understaffed, but they were very happy to se us. I would definitely go back.

Amazing food and beer selection. Follow them on Facebook for constant updates. I had an amazing burger there. Burger of the gods. Even my picky family finds great things. Wish I lived closer. 3,000 miles doesnít cut it for me.

Urge works the upscale gastropub vibe well. Their veggie burger easily falls apart, but the beer selection is good and they are pulling together some good events. Not a bad spot for a more beer-empty part of town.

A decent spot in an out door plaza in RB. Nothing particularly special about the ambiance, and the service was more or less average. The food was a little above average, but not quite as awesome as the menu promised from the descriptions. Decent selection of beers on tap, which tended toward reliable sellers like Duchesse de B. and St. Bernardus and a handful of west coast ipas and Stone brews. All in all, there are better craft beer bars in SD.

Visited this place the other day. The tap list was amazing, they do a great job with beer and this place is a must for the bierophile. But I thought the layout was a bit weird and distracted from the ambiance. No complaints about the service, the staff was friendly and courteous. I did not try the food this trip. I will visit again sometime soon.

Stopped by this place for the first time after the Alesmith BA Speedway release. The tap list was great, service was great, food was great. Canít complain in any way. The beer cheese fries with the medium rare steak on top were amazing. This place is a must if you love craft beer and/or food.

The best bar within at least 20 miles. 51 great brews on tap and about the same number of bottles. Always a good selection of SoCal craft beer as well as personal favorites like Maui Brewing, DFH and Avery. Bartenders are the best; friendly, personable and knowledgeable. Burgers, salads, beer cheese soup and pork cracklins are outrageous. There is a different beer used in every dish. They use interesting meats too like rabbit burgers and rabbit sausage. Overall a perfect beer and wine only bar experience.

Urge is the top spot in North County. The only problem with Urge is that it isnít coastal. 51 taps and they try for rare or small batch stuff as often as possible. The events are killer and the food is even better. The burgers are truly gourmet at chiliís prices. Bob is the best bar keep in the biz and will talk beer and wine with you as long as it isnít crazy busy.
