Fantastic places to eat and watch football.  I ordered the veggie pizza and garlic bread.  Both were quite tasty!  The service was top notch.  Highly recommend this place.  I'll definitely eat here again in the the future... More...

Fair Warning: this place no longer accepts Groupons or similar deals, if you have one, be prepared for them to reject it.House of Bites is a mix of Mediterranean, pizza, pasta, burgers, beers and sandwiches. It's hodgepodge, not fancy but not dirty by any means and definitely has an after-Little-League game or watching UFC with a pitcher of Coors vibe. The food is good and plentiful; I opted for the gyro burger. Had the burger just been beef, trimmings and a bun it would've been big in its own right but they packed on a bunch of gyro slices and some tzatziki sauce and it was a glorified handful of feast with fries in the side. Well cooked and flavorful, I'd get it again. Burgers and sandwiches are all in the $10 range and pizzas are $12 to $14.Friendly service and they offer up about 12 beers on tap. More...

This place is incredible. It was my first time ordering from this place and I will definitely be coming back. I ordered a calzone and it was the size of a pizza also the cheese was so fresh and the bread very original. Next time I'm ordering more sauce on the side ;) More...

This small restaurant offers large portions and good food. The menu is extensive and they have a large takeaway business. The Italian food is usually my choice and I have not been dissatisfied.

I have been by here a dozen times but usually eat at a neighboring restaurant... Super something or other ;-)Anywho, ordered the calzone with sausage and a Belching Beaver IPA.  Really damned good.  Huge, too; couldn't hardly finish half.  Now that's a bargain.  Good food that feeds you twice.Met the owners; great people.  I wish them all the best and I'll be back.Cheers!

Awesome food!  This is twice now that my boyfriend and I have ordered food for delivery.  The first time I ordered the calzone which was so big that I honestly ate it 4 times.  My boyfriend ordered the fettuccine alfredo with chicken.  He wasn't crazy about the chicken which was dry.  However, we ordered again since it was overall so good.  This time I ordered lasagna and he ordered pesto ravioli.  Both came with salads and garlic bread.  This place is great!  Delivery to Saint Archer is icing on the cake!

OMG THE BIGGEST CALZONE EVER. I was eating it for lunch for a couple days fersher lol. I only ate maybe 1/6 of it lmao. You can turn any of their pizza options into a calzone. So worth it for like $10-14 though. It was bigger than my head!!!!I also have had their pastas. It comes with some bombbbbbb garlic bread. The lasagna is good and tortellini. I'd mix pesto with Alfredo sauce. You really get good proportions for their prices! Good for casual. Have happy hour for beers too. Def a go to spot I go to regularly! More...

Great service and food!Wow! I was helped my Amanda who provided excellent service.I ordered the calzone and gyro plate. The Gyro plate was a bit on the petite side but the calzone was HUGE! Easily double the size of a typical serving, but only $10.Amanda was great, she kept my drink topped off, gave me extra napkins when needed, and was super attentive!I'll definitely be back again. Thank you Amanda! More...

I would definitely recommend this place! It's small and locally owned. They have great prices on draft beers and their food is great! I got a white pizza, Cesar salad & a pepperoni pizza for the hubs. We both loved it. We will return. More...

I've had this food delivered before. The fettuccine alfredo isn't the best. I can't rate higher or lower based on 1 food item. I do love that the pasta came with salad and garlic bread and they deliver! More...

Super good. My 11 year old "Best pepperoni pizza I've ever had" garlic cheese bread is super tasty and the Philly cheese pizza is the star of this meal.

This place is extremely underrated, their pies are quite flavorful and well priced, their burgers are sumptuous and plus it's located next to my favorite cigar lounge and they deliver there so I might be a little biased on this. Their beers are also solid, they carry a few craft brews on draft which is cool. The spot has quite a number of TVs and they show all major sports (big plus). Try it out and you won't be disappointed. More...

Good stuff here! For a little hole in the wall place this place ROCKS!! Mozzarella sticks were just right, not greasy like they usually are. The basic Calzone for $10 +$1.25 per filling was THE BOMB!!! For lunch I couldn't even finish half of it, Even my buddy David who's a little on the Fluffy side couldn't finish his!!! The other stuff on the menu looked just as good. Great service from the 2 gentlemen, and it looks like they also have delivery.Definitely put this spot on the rotation! They even have March Madness on 5 TVs!!!You know what, I was giving them 4 stars because I rarely give 5, but f it..... they Were THAT GOOD, gave them 5 STARS!!! More...

The quality of the food alone gives this place its 5 stars. I strongly suggest getting the calzone, it's the size of a large pizza! This place has definitely become one of my favorite restaurants. If your looking for awesome Italian food, this is the spot! More...

I am enjoying my first order from House of Bites as I write:) what a great experience! The food is delicious and the prices are really good. I ordered the calzone with the pepperoni halal as I didn't see pepperoni on the add on items, I thought I only saw pepperocinis? Anyway, Taylor called me right away to let me know they didn't have the halal pepperoni which was totally fine by me because they have traditional pepperoni as well. Btw, I looked it up and halal means beef based whereas traditional pepperoni is a mixture of beef/pork. Wasn't a big deal for me. Taylor was very pleasant and adjusted  my order right away. We received our food sooner than the amount of time estimated through grub hub. Super impressed by the food, & customer service. So glad we have a new delicious addition to our takeout/delivery rotation! More...

We visited the Resturant today around 5:30 . The place was nice and the lady who works there was very friendly. They have halal meat so that's why I recommend this place because it is really hard to find halal restaurants that offer halal meat . The price is fair and the portion of the food is a lot . Two person can easily share one meal .i give them five star because we loved it and we will come Back again More...

If you come from the Twin Cities in Minnesota and are familiar with Chanticlear  or Keno's pizza this is as close as you're going to get in Southern California. My search is over.  Perfect pizza. I have been searching since 1996. More...

Date of visit: December 28, 2018Even though it's now 2019, I'm still a bit behind on my reviews... so here we go with my first of the year!  Anyways, the Groupon I had for House of Bites was set to expire that weekend, and thus I went off to redeem it at this Mediterrean/Italian place.Since the Groupon was good for only $15, I figured I'd use it on a calzone, appetizer, and drink (it would be my way of thanking them for honoring the Groupon).  So, I paid for a 6-piece order of lemon pepper wings ($6.99), a Diet Pepsi (2.99)... and while the Groupon covered the calzone ($9.99), since it only has cheese and sauce, I opted to upgrade it to a Works one with pepperoni, sausage, onions, and peppers - which cost $4.50 extra (and which wasn't mentioned on the menu).Be that as it may, the wings were cooked just right with a crisy exterior and a juicy interior.  The calzone was what surprised me; I was expecting something akin to what Pizza Hut or Domino's has with their single person ones.  At House of Bites, what you get appears to be a large pizza folded in on itself and baked to a well-done crust!  This thing is huge... but then I heard of the GIANT Calzone Challenge, where a team of 3 has 45 minutes to polish off the massive 1/2 table sized one (so far, only three teams out of 45 have accomplished this feat).  My Works Calzone was delicious, and I had lots of leftovers to take home with me afterwards.The restaurant itself is pretty clean, with several flat screen TVs tuned into various sporting events.  The gal running the register made sure to check on my drink refills and to bring me my orders when they were done.  Yes, the service here can be a bit slow, but then again everything comes out freshly made!So, consider this a 4.5 star review, and with the Groupons for House of Bites being plentiful, I'm sure I'll be coming back here (if anything, to try their burgers and sandwiches)!

Order from this place on delivery service pretty often. Food is always quality and packaged well for delivery. Ate inside one day as well and it looks like it's a family-owned business so that's always good to know you're supporting a local family. Keep up the good work guys.

I tried the manicotti dinner on my most recent visit and was impressed. I loved the stuffed pasta and the garlic bread that accompanied it. The dinner also came with a side salad and I appreciated the assortment of food as I've always preferred to eat a little of a lot of things rather than a lot of one. There was plenty of food for a second meal too!My boyfriend finally got to try his calzone from here and I continue to impressed by the vast size of the calzone.We'll be back again soon! More...

Great restaurant off Mira Mar! Came on a Sunday around 2pm. Not busy at all. The food is bar food with a Mediterranean twist. Mozzarella sticks, Philly Cheese Steak, and Gyro under $30. They have about 4-5 TVs for sports and a large selections of beers/drinks. Not 100% sure if they had hard alcohol. Great experience and our waitress was on point!  Very sweet an More...

I enjoy House of Bites several times a month with my coworker. Hector makes the whole lunch hour very pleasant when we can get away from the office. We were in fact eating our lunch - I had an AMAZING Philly sandwich btw, on a day about two weeks ago. A call had come in and Hector took it. We could tell it was a complaint about something. Hector handled the call professionally and calmly. He never once raised his voice and offered to remake the meal. A few minutes later a lady came storming in. She started yelling and was incredibly rude. This situation ended with her throwing her food and making a huge mess. Now, I am not sure exactly what the problem was, but I for one have NEVER had a bad experience with Hector or House of Bites in the 3 years I have been eating here. I HIGHLY recommend this resturant!

We were in Miramar one night craving chicken wings and this place came up on yelp... and boy am I glad we came here! This place is such a hidden gem... they have so many great options for food: sandwiches, burgers, wings, pizza, calzones... it's the perfect food place after getting soused at the breweries. Walking in, the restaurant looks like a diner with plenty of seating. The employees were all very nice and were pretty great at recommending things to eat. We went with the buffalo wings and works pizza. The chicken wings were HUUUUUGE! They were crispy and full of flavor. They exceeded my expectations and were cooked to perfection. I'm used to restaurants undercooking wings to the point where they're slimy and bloody. These wings are heavenly!Now to the pizza... the works pizza had pepperoni, sausage, bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms. There's not enough compliments I can give to this pizza. The crust is perfect... eerily similar to a New York style pizza. The toppings were in abundance and tasted super fresh. They did not skimp on the meat... I had pepperoni and sausage in every bite. I'm kind of a pizza snob, but this pizza lands in my top 5 best pizzas of all time! I feel so lucky to live close by. This restaurant is a diamond in the rough and deserves more exposure. It's a shame that more people haven't tasted the greatness of House of Bites! I hope this place stays in business for years to come. I can't imagine a world where I can't taste this pizza again! 5 stars all around. And shout out to the employee doing his job with a sling on one arm! This dude is doing the work of two people with one arm! You're the best! More...

My husband,two boys and myself went to The House of Bites a few weeks ago in San Diego. We were so impressed by the menu, as it had a wide range of food options and it catered to the Muslim community. Normally when I go to a Halal restaurant, the options are usually the same, but here, we were able to try sandwiches, cheese steak, burgers... you name it! We met the owner Hector, who seriously was such an amazing person. He went out of his way to share his experiences, he even walked to a nearby supermarket to buy my 2year old apple juice, because he wanted it so bad. Nothing but positive things to say about this joint. We will definitely be going back! Thank you for your great food and wonderful service. More...

Great place to eat. The food is excellent and the portion sizes are huge. We couldn't finish our meal because it was so much food. We especially enjoyed the pizza. My husband ordered a small pizza and it was a decent size. He really enjoyed it. I'm a New Yorker who loves pastrami but I can hardly find good pastrami in San Diego. I ordered the pastrami sandwich and did not regret it. It was served with provolone cheese, onions, tomatoes and lettuce. I should have said hold the lettuce but it was still a great sandwich. I am definitely going to eat there again. More...

BIG YES..the food here Amazing, we were in town from Vancouver Canada and googled this place because of some of the halal options that they offer. We ordered the wings, Philly cheese steak and cheese teak burger. The service was very good and fairly quick the food was on point and portions were big. The owner (Hector) was super friendly and took the time to talk to us and give us some pointers about the city. Hector is running a legit eatery here!! We will be back !!!!!!!! More...

I ordered pizza as a takeout from this restaurant on a Saturday night. The pizzas were huge and tasted amazing. Especially the giant 35' inch pizza with the works. I had a quite a big order of 7-8 extra large pizzas and a pack of 24 hot chicken wings. Everything was made in time and correctly. The staff were friendly both in person and over the phone. I am a restaurant owner myself and highly recommend their pizzas. One the best pizza places in San Diego for the variety, quality, taste, size and bang for your buck.My restaurant staff absolutely loved the pizzas from here. This is going to be my go to pizza place from now on. More...

So I read through the reviews and was a little worried about ordering online and not just going in. Seems most of the issues were with deliveries and not the food. I chose to order through yelp with grub hub. I had a great, flawless experience. Food was expected 45-55 mins and I got it in 46. The guy that showed up was very nice and had a House of Bites shirt on so I'm assuming he works for them and did a great job! Polite and quick. As for the food the calzone is absolutely huge!!! I will be eating it for a week! Not greasy and with fresh, delicious cheese not that cheap crap from your large chain pizza places. Delicious! The pizza was the same absolutely delicious with great, fresh ingredients that make all the difference! If I had to complain it would be that the "jumbo" wings are not larger the normal wings and should just be called wings as I expected them to be larger. Still delicious I tried one and will be eating them for lunch tomorrow because I couldn't eat all that food! Prices are great! Compared to other similar spots the pizza wasn't over priced and they have a huge array of options. I will be returning and I had an amazing delivery experience. More...

I've been here with my coworkers and we have ordered calzones to go as well. I decided to bring my two sons to try the calzone challenge. We came so close to finishing it.

I recommend to everyone looking for a great calzone and an ice cold beer to come to house of bites. More...

Love coming here after 7 with my boyfriend for half off drinks & appetizers! The last time I was there we ordered the cheesy garlic bread, which was absolutely delicious!! Followed by my boyfriend ordering the gyro plate and I ordered the tortellini pasta with Alfredo sauce (as pictured). Our food was delicious and it even came with a salad to start off with. The food portions were very big, that we had to take our food to-go. Overall, we both had great service here and really liked the food we had! And we are more than likely to come back since it is fairly close to base. More...

Stopped in for supper last night looking for a gluten-free meal and I'm so glad we did. The shop is small and unassuming, in a busy shopping center. Everyone was super friendly, patient with all my inquiries about the menu and dietary restrictions. The food came out in HUGE portions! I ordered GF pasta w/Alfredo sauce which came with a Greek salad and garlic bread. They happily gave me double salad for the bread. The salad was delicious with a wonderful house-made GF dressing. The pasta was really, really good and the sauce was also house made. The others with me ordered a gyro burger & a pastrami sandwich with fries. Both were so big that neither person could finish and were reported to be delicious, too. It doesn't look like much from the outside but the food and people who work there more than make up for it. We'll be back! More...

A friend that works here named Kevin told me to swing by, and I don't regret it at all! It was very delicious. I showed them a picture of how cheesy I wanted the pizza to be and they gave me exactly what I asked for. She let me try the different beers without hesitation and she made sure I found the perfect one! I got a 22oz for $5 which is GREAT! And the beer is half off after 7pm! I will definitely be coming back and recommending people to come here too. More...

I really appreciated when the manager private messaged me about my review and apologized for the uncooked pizza. He offered to comp my next pizza, so I took him up on it and fed my colleagues yesterday. We ordered the 14" gluten free philly cheese steak pizza. My coworkers were pretty happy. It's not the best pizza I've ever had, but it's good, and I do appreciate the gesture from management. More...

I just got back from an 8 hour drive from the Bay Area and I needed something to eat before hitting the road with my bf to LA-- we found this spot and ordered the gyro plate and gyro burger. The plate had generous amount of hummus, bread and lamb yet not enough of the rice which I was disappointed about. The lamb though was super delicious. My boyfriend however felt like the burger could have been better, there was no cheese.. and if you wanted it, you had to pay extra! Other than the whole cheese and rice, it tasted pretty good. Fries were just okay. More...

I think this place is pretty phenomenal. I absolutely love their mediterranean options, their chicken shwarma is so good.I love that they have Meditteranean and Italian all in one place and they make it so well seasoned. My friend is obsessed with their lasagna and it feeds more than one person. If you're delivering they do have a disclaimer that it will take 45-65minutes but I think it so worth the wait because the portions are huge and it is so awesome that they have free delivery when you order through yelp (don't order online through the website).  I'm glad I ignored all the other negative comments, because honestly where do you find free delivery now? And I can imagine why their orders are so stacked, they're food is incredible. I live a bit of a drive from them so as long as they keep the delivery going for free, I'm going to be a frequent customer. I'm pretty excited to try out the rest of the menu. More...

YUMMMMMM. This is the best pizza place.  My husband and I look forward to having pizza night in because of it.  We almost always order delivery, though we've sat in a few times.  The Greek pizza is our favorite and we can't get enough of it!  Their onion rings are also fantastic.  Definitely want to try more of their menu but have a hard time getting away from the stuff we know we love.

With a name like House of Bites, you might expect small portions, but this place is the exact opposite.To say that the serving sizes are generous is the biggest understatement in the San Diego food scene.When we visited last weekend, my partner and I each ordered a calzone and a bowl of spaghetti. With prices mostly around or under $10, we were expecting smaller, New York deli style portions. We ordered, and it took a long time for the food to arrive -- probably over 20 minutes -- but when the food came, we understood why the wait was so long.Because dinosaur sized food takes a long time to bake! The server put down the calzone which took up half the table. It looked like they had made an extra large pizza, then folded it in half to make an enormous pouch of cheese and sauce. The calzone looked like it belonged in the Guinness Book of World Records.Similarly, my bowl of pasta was amazingly big in a bowl that looked like it was 18-inches wide. It came with a ton of housemade sauce that didn't taste like it was just cheap and out of a jar.House of Bites is located near MCAS Miramar. I would definitely recommend this place if you want a lot of food and are craving pizza, calzone, spaghetti, wings, beer, and the like. They also have gyros, salads, sandwiches and kabob plates and all their meat is halal. More...

First time visiting.  The calzone could easily feed two people.  The bread (crust) was excellent.  We also have the white pizza which was quite good.  The service was excellent and the restaurant was very clean.  Plenty of parking. More...

An out of the way place, in a Miramar strip mall. But it pays to seek out House of Bites. Overall, the service is great. My drink was kept filled throughout the meal, and I was served promptly. I had the gyros plate, a side of onion rings, and a soda. The gyros plate included a salad, basmati rice, hummus, pickles, tomato, and cucumber, pita triangles, and gyros meat with dipping sauce. A lot of good for the price! The onion rings were really good. The coating was thin and very crisp, not at all doughy or gummy like a lot of other place's rings. Even cooled off, they remained crunchy! I will be back! More...

It didn't look like much, but we were in a hurry.  They have a lot on their menu: pizza, sandwiches, salads, gyros... the list goes on.  They also have a good beer list.  We got the Belching Beaver PB Latte.  What goes better with beer than pizza and wings?!  The food was great! The one issue I had was the $1 charge for using a card.  I never carry cash, so that was a little annoying. More...

Stopped by on whim for lunch while in the area. Ordered a calzone and Philly cheese steak and both were delicious. Huge portions, definitely reminiscent of being on the east coast again. Great service as well. We really enjoy small chill places like this, lots of tvs for games as well. Would definitely be back. More...

Such a nice change from the mass of NY Style pizza places in San Diego! I've been looking for a thicker crust, pizzeria-style pizza since I moved here, and House of Bites satisfied that craving!I was pretty skeptical when I saw that they serve Mediterranean food and pizza, but I'm glad I gave it a try. With pizza, pictures can be deceiving, but the crust, sauce, and cheese were all great to me! More...

Since I moved to Mira Mesa a few months ago I have been looking for a good pizza place. Seems like every place I tried has been a huge disappointment until I found House of Bites. My husband and I ordered two calzones for delivery. They have a wide selection of toppings to choose from. The crust was perfectly done all buttery and sprinkled with Parmesan. And they don't skimp on toppings either like most other pizza joints. The inside was full of cheese, meat and sauce. Sauce!!! I can't remember the last time I had a calzone with actual sauce inside. They also give you a generous amount of sauce on the side for dipping. I told myself I was only going to eat half the calzone because it was so big and ended up eating almost the entire thing because it was so delicious I just couldn't stop. Delivery was fast and courteous with plenty of Parmesan and red pepper packets to boot. I'm so happy I found this place. It's going to be my goto from now on. More...

Found this place during a "weekend" away with our dog. Searched through Yelp for pup-friendly restaurants and the reviews looked good. We weren't disappointed! The older lady came out and doted on our boy the entire visit... insisting on checking both the kitchen and her car for treats to give him! We had the Philly sandwich and a meatball sandwich. The fries were seasoned perfectly and the Greek dressing on my side salad was delicious. They make their own pasta sauce, and you could tell! The meatballs were some of the best I've had as well... we'll definitely be back if we're ever in the area again! More...

My girlfriend and I had one wing each and looked at each other and both said they are too salty and sent them back. But otherwise great service. More...

I am a fan of House of Bites, because the manager was friendly and accommodating when a friend and I stumbled upon this place after working out.  We were both craving carbs and this seemed to be the perfect place. Let me tell you, the food here has LARGE portions so be careful of over-ordering. It's a great place to share food as the portions are served family-style.We ordered the lasagna with meat sauce and a small vegetarian pizza. The lasagna was great, served with a side of garlic bread and a house salad. The house salad was just all right, nothing too special.  The lasagna was heavy. It was definitely filling as each layer had meat and cheese, though the sauce was quite salty for me.The small pizza looked small, but it was mighty.  There was plenty of toppings on it, and we switched out the olives for artichoke, which was quite nice.  We had some leftovers that we were able to bring home as well.  Plenty of parking in the lot, and I would recommend this place if you're in the area and looking for something yummy and filling.

Pleasantly surprised. The night we came there was a UFC fight. Cover was posted at $10pp, but we stepped in beforehand. You walk in and you can select your table. The server would come and bring menus to you. Lots of variety there. We ordered a medium pizza (half and half), and the gyro plate to share. The gyro plate came with a side salad that my husband and I shared as well.The pizza was good. Came out piping hot and crunchy crust. They have beers of draft that my husband was very appreciative. The gyro plate was good also and with good portion. We finished the gyro plate and decided to take half the pizza home.The leftover pizza was good warmed up in the toaster oven. The service was quick, and the establishment is not busy at all. There are 4 TVs in the place, and I saw several military come in (the base is just across the street). Good place to grab food in the area if you want variety. In the same shopping center as SuperNatural and Rigobertos - other awesome eats! Ample parking. More...

The $$ rating is a bit much.  Yes, the pizzas are over $10, but they also feed more than one.  Small place with acombination family/pizza joint feel.  I like that I was greeted by the owner! Comfy chairs at the bar and friendly staff.  Ordered a gyro, medium wings, and as personal (10"!) pizza.  The gyro meat was good enough to order extra just to munch on.  Asked for the wings well done, and they did it perfectly.  Pizza was a chewy crust and lots of cheese.  Wide delivery area and reasonable delivery prices (I think they said it was $2) means the husband has a new work lunch place.  The family friendly, diverse menu means we'll be back in, also.

The owner greeted us quickly and very care for the customers. I saw a couple reviews saying staffs were rude but it wasn't true. Ordered buffalo wing, buffalo chicken pizza and a salad. Wings were definitely my favorite. My bf said he hasn't had wings this good in awhile. I love the pizza but personally would like the pizza a little bit more spicy. Price for the pizza is very decent for a large pizza. Definitely come back again! They do deliver food :) More...

What do you do when there are four different people that want four different things to eat?  Eat separately?  Or find somewhere that can accommodate four different taste buds?  This gem has eluded us for maybe 15 months.  This spot was something else before it was called House of Bites...but everytime we would come it was closed or renovating.  We finally got to try it.At first we didnt know if we ordered at the counter or just take a seat and be waited on.  We helped ouselves with a couple menus from the counter and sat at a table.  A young lady asked if she can get us some drinks, so we ordered.  At this point we figured this was a place that served....and boy did they serve.  I don't know if it was because it wasn't busy or if they are just that attentative, but their service was good!Kids wanted to try the hummus and I knew after looking at the yelp pictures I wanted to try their pizza.  The kids loved, I mean LOOOVVVED the hummus and they could have just eatin that for dinner.  Wife ordered the beef ravioli with alfredo sauce and I ordered for me and the kids the 1/2 cheese and 1/2 philly cheese.  I say it was a 4 out of 5.  Definitely better than pizza hut or any of the frnachise joints.There are many other items I would love to try and I would come back because of the great attentive service also.  A must try place if there isn't anything particular you feel like eating cause this place has a variety of good quality food for a fair price.

This is a long over due review. I've been ordering from here practically since they opened. At times between myself and my roommates we would order 2-3 times a week. Great friendly place. The food is amazing still haven't found something I don't like. My newest favorite is the lemon pepper wings. I actually just ordered them for dinner. Glad this place continues to thrive and provide one of the best delivers around. You can also dine in if you would like. Overall I cannot thank them enough for the amazing food when I don't feel like cooking and one of the only places around to offer free delivery. More...

Overall the food, decor and ambiance of the restaurant was just okay. But the service took it to the 4 star level. Not sure if my server was the owner or not but he was very attentive and accommodating to all my needs.I had the beef shwarma (12.99) which comes with a side salad, pita bread, hummus, rice and even a bonus jalapeno popper. I got the greek salad as my side salad and that greek dressing was tasty with a citrusy finish, glad I ask for extra dressing on the side so I could drizzle on my rice. The beef had a little too much pungent cinnamony spice to it. Too much for my taste. I actually prefer the beef shwarma at La Miche Kabobgee ($15.50) a few bucks more, but totally worth it! More...

I got there a bit before lunch, and it was obvious they weren't fully ramped up to start serving, but the staff still got my order going and had my salad and soda at my table promptly. Larry (the owner) is a friendly guy and I like restaurants where the owner is on-site and engaged in the place -- he was doing everything from taking phone orders to ringing up customers to cleaning tables to refilling my drink. I thought their hummus was very good, and I had a chicken and rice plate that hit the spot. I'd definitely go back. More...

Husband and I were in the area getting our car serviced.  We were really hungry and decided to eat nearby.  Opened up trusty yelp on the phone and found house of bites just a few minutes away.  My husband tries to stay away from carb heavy Italian cuisine so he was reluctant to go.  That is until he saw that they had Mediterranean food as well! Yay for hummus!  I, on the other hand, can devour entire loafs of garlic bread hehe!  We ordered buffalo wings, beef ravioli, and beef kebab plate.The salad that came with the meal was amazing.  I never usually order any type of Greek salad.  We both liked this very much.  The wings were crispy and juicy.The wait for our entrees took a little longer than expected.  I chose a mushroom sauce for my ravioli and it was a tomato sauce with a generous amounts of mushrooms in it.  I love mushrooms! Yum.Service was great and if we are ever in the area we will be back! Support local! More...

Came here via restaurant.com and would come back again in a heartbeat just for the garlic and lemon pepper wings.. they were delish.  We also had pizza and the chicken Caesar salad which were good.  Portions are big so it's a great place to share plates and you truly get your money's worth, even without a coupon.  Larry, one of the owners, took the time to explain the menu and gave us some recommendations.  They make everything from scratch and there is a good variety of choices.  It's very casual with a couple of TV screens so if you're in the mood for good food with no fuss, they do it right.

This place is honestly one of the most ridiculous pizza joints I've ever been to. The taste, quality, and price make it the best choice when you're doing a brewery marathon in the area. They also offer many incentives for returning. There's a 15% off Yelp check in, you can earn points with 5-star, AND they have a $25 off $50 purchase on restaurant.com. To top it off, they have an even more delicious 28" pizza for you to share with a small army. It tastes better because it's more. Trust me on this one. House of Bitehs, please never change because we love you. Things to order- The Giant Pizza- Wings (super hot and garlic parm)- Chicken Shawarma Plate- Another Giant Pizza More...

The BRN crew (Bad Restaurant Night) found this one on Yelp. Our sort is 'good for groups' '$' and we added 'outdoor seating' since the evening was warm (71 degrees). There are 6 to 10 in the BRN crew and we were eight strong on this Saturday evening. Our first restaurant was Chinatown in Encinitas. That was five years ago and it was memorable only in how mediocre everything was (except the fortune cookies). However, one hold over from that night was a penchant for restaurants that serve two cuisines. Chinatown specialized in Italian and Chinese. House of Bites advertised Italian and Mediterranean.  The reviews for House of Bites on Yelp were mixed, but generally focused on the delivery orders being mixed up. The food got good reviews, so with the lure of two types of food on the menu, we headed off to Miramar.The best BRN restaurants are located in strip malls where the rent is cheaper. House of Bites was no exception. It's located in the same mall as the 24-hour Roberto's. There were three tables out front. We pushed them together to seat the eight of us. Actually, the owner (Hector, I believe from reading through the reviews, though for some reason we didn't introduce ourselves at any point) got the seating together for us. The inside of the restaurant was on the warm side (as mentioned in another review), so the outdoor option was a real plus.We peppered 'Hector' with questions about the menu while waiting for the other half of our party to arrive and started off with an order of 18 wings (half BBQ/half lemon pepper). We asked about the difference between Schwarma and Tekka (it's the marinade and how it's cut/served).  We asked what he thought was best. We ordered two lasagnas (a big hit), the beef schwarma, the chicken tekka, a hummus platter, and the philly cheese steak. Instead of serving the individual orders and forcing us to split them up, we were served family style, with the salads combined onto plate, etc. This made it much easier to serve.  And, the meal came out as one would expect. The wings came first. Just as we were finishing the wings, we got the salad and hummus. So often in restaurants like this, everything comes out once or comes out in some disjointed fashion, or before you are ready.  At every point in the meal, the service was remarkably professional. Personally, my favorites were the Chicken Tekka, the lasagna, and the salad, but all the entrees drew positive comments from the BRN'ers. The bread was great, too.  We even tried a chocolate cake at the end that was tasty and tastefully presented. All in all, we were there for nearly 2 hours. It was a very pleasant experience. We even got to know the drivers a bit. After tax, our bill was less than $11 a person. It was a phenomenal meal (putting it in the context that we were dining 30 yards from Miramar and three doors down from a cigar bar - which was not an issue despite how close we were to the smoke pouring out of the front door). This is a restaurant that deserves the public's support. We all came away finding it hard to believe that House of Bites would get bad reviews. Surely, there is something on the that you will love.

I was a little hesitant to try this place, because Mediterranean food with Italian food, how can one place do them both well, this place really did. We had the Garlic Parmesan wing, Beef Shawerma plate and the Philly Pizza. I would definitely would recommend this place.ProsRoomyExcellent customer service-Larry very friendly and gave us great suggestions when asked.Plenty of parkingDrinks always fullThe food is very flavorful, fresh, and great portion size.ConsA bit to hot inside(not sure if ac was down, but felt like it.)

Second time eating from this place, first time actually going in.Stumbled across it one late work night when searching for pizza on yelp and was extremely satisfied.Today, my co worker and I tried their Mediterranean food and it was pretty good.Not the best I've had, but it was definitely worth the price paid.Under 10 dollars for the following: Salad (To start) Chicken, Rice, Hummus, Pita Bread.Not bad at all.Definitely adding it to the list and will let my other coworkers know about it.

$$ AMAZING  $2  This restaurant took me completely by surprise. It's nestled in the middle of a little strip mall and if I'd had blinked I'd have missed it completely. THANK GOD I don't blink.  The smells of Sun ripened Marinara sauce and Garlic bread teased my senses from clear out in the parking lot... I was in town for a graduation and having just left the event, My wife, children and I were all hungry... We pulled into the parking lot to Google some restaurants.. House of bites came up and we were already there.  We walked in and we're greeted by at least 3 or 4 employees who sat us immediately. The restaurant was small but very welcoming. The owner Hector came out and actually greeted us.. talked and joked with my children, made us all feel like part of his family. The food was absolutely decadent. I've not had food that authentic tasting since being Stationed at Aviano AB in Italy... During the meal my 6 year old son had mentioned to the owner that he'd just celebrated  a birthday and after our delicious meal, he walked my son and daughter to their desert display where he let them both chose a desert "on the house" in celebration of my Lil man's birthday.  I will definitely be a repeat customer, and actually have recommended it to friends and family that will be out in San Diego on buisness. If I could give this place 6 stars I totally would.  The owner couldn't have been nicer or more genuine a person. Thanks Hector for the great meal and spectacular customer service. More...

took one star off because service was far too slow from ordering to serving the food to checking out. however as a italian bistro it did a great job fixing your pasta craving with a few bucks. but please improve the service efficiency so that it makes an ideal lunch spot More...

The House of Bites is really casual, nothing fancy. Sometimes, that's all you want! Good food and no extra BS. We came in on a Friday night and it seems like this family restaurant is a popular place for take out. But, if you decide to sit down no worries; the servers are very friendly and super accommodating to special orders/substitutes.The prices are great, especially since the food is freshly made to order. It's worth the extra wait.I enjoyed my Greek salad with chicken and marinara on the side. It has some awesome Mediterranean flavor to it.My husband ordered the chicken plate(it had a different name and I forgot it) the pita was warm and fresh, the hummus was tasty but a bit oily. More...

First time here as a spur of the moment decision. Ordered a personal pepperoni and olive. With a Pelligrino drink, the total was not even more $10. The pizza was pretty big for a personal pizza. In addition, the dough was delicious, sauce is good, the bottom of the pizza had just the right crisp to it. What sells me on this place was the service. There was a delay in my pizza and I had coworkers waiting for me. They refunded my money and the owner personally handed me my pizza and apologized. Good food... even better service. That's hard to find. More...

We went here today because of the number of star reviews and because it has an eclectic menu. The price is amazing and the food is excellent. We started with a Greek Salad with a unique dressing. It was very good! Just because food has a unique taste to it doesn't make it bad it just means your pallet does not agree with it. I've seen the reviews here and other places that state items are subpar but only because they don't particularly like the taste.The chicken and beef Greek plate was amazing, the pizza is amazing and so is the chocolate cake. Hector is a great owner and Taylor is an awesome server. I recommend you go here for lunch and football Sunday. We will be back for sure! More...

Hidden gem. Their famous torpedo is a sandwich that is inexplicable and only truly only understood once you've tried it yourself.

Always another day to come back. More...

Very pleasantly surprised by this place. I was looking for a place that delivered and this one had the lowest minimum cost and delivery fee. The first thing I noticed was how huge and diverse their menu was, anything from Mediterranean to Italian with all sorts of sandwiches offered as well, and the prices are extremely reasonable. I ordered lasagna, Cesar salad, garlic bread & tiramisu all for around $29.00 (after tax and 15% tip) and the portions were very generous. The food arrived on time with no issues and was still hot when I received it. The food was good, nothing special, but still above average especially for delivery. I've only tried the Italian side of the menu here so I can't offer much in the way of shawarmas and hummuses but I would urge you to check this place out if you're on the fence, good food, big portions and great prices you can't go wrong with that.

Used a restaurant.com gift certificate for this place.  I recommend it if you're getting an excess of food, especially for at least a small group.  Even without it, you'll be very satisfied.Portions are very filling.  Average price for many of their items are about $10.  I say that is very well worth it.  And since what they offer has a bit of variety, they're more likely to have what you're craving.  Last I ordered, we got a pasta dish, beef shawarma platter, and a Philly cheesesteak with fries.  None of it disappointed.Staff is very grateful for the business of customers.Since we took our food to go, I don't remember how the place looked, but from what I do remember, it seemed like a nice place to hang out.  Definitely a place I could bring friends.My first impression of this place was obviously a good one.  Awaiting at least another visit so I could assess more details for a more accurate review.

Probably should have gone for the Mediterranean food.The place is clean and neat with a friendly staff but the spaghetti and fettuccine Alfredo were both pretty bland and could have used more seasoning (added salt, and Parmesan cheese were not enough)-at least a more spicy option could be added to the menu. Positives were the crisp green salads, garlic bread, and the deserts. More...

So working in Miramar there is plethora of Mediterranean eateries. Most of them are so so, but TODAY things have changed!I initially called ahead, which on this occasion I did try but was unsuccessful (which was weird because it was after 2p). So I decided to drive over to see if they were open, which they were.I was greeted warmly by to ladies at the front counter (one I presume is the owner or the owners mom). There were two other patrons when I entered my order was taken promptly,  and the restaurant was very clean. Now here's the reason I call a head (side note: the phone was down hence I couldn't get through) the wait time was 20 min. Once I received my order the smells over took my car, I couldn't wait to get back to my desk. I ordered the Chicken Tekka, it came with a side salad, hummus, pitas, and saffron rice. The portion was generous for the $10.80 spent. Now to the good stuff, the chicken was moist well seasoned, the hummus was tasty, and the saffron rice they didn't skimp on the saffron! Overall I was satisfied and mostly likely be back! More...

Ok, I'm a bit on the "vino" side of life right now so everyone looks absolutely GORGEOUS to me!!! HA!Anyway, back to the topic on hand. House of Bites. Pffffftttt... more like House of "Work Out After These Bites".... it's that delicious and that indulgent. I'm willing to be on a treadmill while eating their pizzas. It's that serious. I don't own a treadmill but if I did, that's what I would be willing to do. I ordered via Eat24 and the pizza arrived in a timely manner. Yet, when we got it the pizzas was on the "no no" side. I had to call the restaurant to let them know of the issue of my pizzas. This place not only refunded me the cost of my pizzas but the owner himself came to deliver new pizzas! That's what I call customer service! I'm a big principle's gal and the fact that he (Larry ) didn't want to leave my kids and I with a bad taste in our mouths (pun intended) he made new pizzas and literally hand delivered them himself. That got me tons of brownie points and I'll definitely be using the refund in full on recycle mode and spend it with y'all again. I feel horrible, however. I've got teens and if you've got teens you know they are locusts. I don't think their selective hearing heard me say, "Don't eat that pizza, I need to call the restaurant."... they heard (in absolute slow motion) "Come on kids, eat the pizza!" Needless to say, Larry( ) took what was left of the few pizzas my locusts didn't devour. He wanted to actually bring it back as a "lesson learned" to his chefs.... FIST PUMP / CHEST BUMP!!! They've earned my business. The first batch wasn't a good first impression but the second impression is pretty much killing the first impression so this is basically my positive first impression now!!!Thank you and can't wait until football season!! Don't get mad at the owner y'all, he's made the mistake of staying a Giant's fan. Not everyone can be perfect Daygo!!! Even a delicious restaurant as House of Bites.PS- The teens ate the middle of the 1st delivery and the 2nd delivery is GONE. That must tell you something. I'll probably be ordering again in about 10 minutes. . .ha!Great job House!!! Y'all are AWESOME! More...

great place! after serving at san diego food bank, it was a great place to eat afterwards. BIG portions, delicious food, and such a friendly staff. rosa was so friendly, the salad was yum (although maybe a little less dressing would be better). i had the beef shawarma w/ rice and my husband had the pastrami sandwich which was quite tasty. the fries were perfectly seasoned, and the right amount of crispy. overall, would definitely try it out again. hopefully i'll leave some room for the baklava so many reviews speak highly of.

I have never been to the actual storefront but I have ordered from them via Eat24 and had their food delivered.The food is delicious! I really loved the lemon pepper chicken wings. The wings were huge and crispy and possibly needed a little more lemon pepper but all in all I was very satisfied with my food. I also ordered a Chicken Tekka plate and the rice was super flavorful and the chicken was juicy. The plate also comes with a small salad and hummus (which was a nice surprise).I love that on Eat24 there is no delivery fee as long as you place an order that meets the minimum.I highly recommend!!!

House of Bites is my new favorite place to eat...especially their lemon pepper wings! My friends and I are always going to various places for Happy Hour, trying to hunt down some good wings. Well, we found them here. The hunt is over. We prefer our wings dry, so we tried the lemon pepper. So good! The wings are nice and big (definitely worth the price!) and the seasoning is perfect. Some might think it's a tad salty, but we love it! We also cut the saltiness with their delicious antipasto salad. Their salads are the best! Fresh ingredients and nice crunchy lettuce. And their homemade Greek salad dressing is our favorite. We told them they should bottle it up and sell it. They also cater & deliver. I recently had them deliver a large order for a group of 30. The food arrived exactly on time and hot & fresh. Everyone loved it! Across the board. They also have great specials that includes lasagnas, garlic bread & soda with a large pizza. Their pizza are delicious too. Crust is soft and flavorful, Will not disappoint.They also have a large dessert display at the store. I've had the tiramisu (delicious!) and plan to try the others. I'd also like to try their Mediterranean dishes next time. if only I can rip myself away from those wings!Finally, customer service. Nicest people run that place. I believe it's a family that runs it and they are so friendly and accommodating. They take the time to talk to you and even ask for any feedback. I appreciate any business that appreciates the customer....and they do!I hope this place stays for a long, long time. Or perhaps expands to other locations. They are that good. I think I have to go get some more wings now.... More...

Come hungry! They definitely fill you up here, and you absolutely get your money's worth. We found this restaurant on Yelp, and were enticed by the menu to stop in. We were greeted by (who I think was) one of the owners. She welcomed us, asked is we'd been before, then gave us a brief rundown of the menu. We took one of the menus to a nearby table while we perused our options (no sense clogging up the order line). Everything looked very good, and the place smelled heavenly. Once we made our decisions, we went back to the counter to place our order. I went with the primavera fettuccine, and my husband got the spaghetti with meatballs. Both dishes came with salads to start, and we got a fountain drink to share (bonus points to the same lady for humoring me by giving us part lemonade, part Sprite to drink!)So this is why I'm removing a star: the wait for food was pretty bad. They had a good delivery and to-go business going that day, but while the food kept going out, it took forever for it to get to our table. Once the food arrived, we were both very impressed. The salad came out first, and I was surprised by how large it was. It also had this really interesting (tasty!) dressing that made me want to lick the plate clean. I'm not sure what it was, it wasn't a typical vinaigrette, but it was yummy. The pasta dishes (which, yes, were very long in coming) were similarly impressive. My Alfredo dish was massive, and it seemed to be layer upon layer upon layer of cheesy goodness. There were noodles in there - somewhere - and there were a few broccoli and I think carrot pieces, but the overwhelming piece of that dish was the cheese and cream sauce. Definitely not something to order if you're not a fan of dairy. I couldn't eat the whole thing. I felt like I'd been eating all my life, but the pile of pasta never diminished. I made the tiniest of holes in the pile before tapping out, and getting a box to go. My husband, meanwhile, very valiantly finished his entire meal, all the while commenting on how delicious it was, and how full he felt. Didn't stop him from eating, though. The service was really good, which I appreciated. They did come out a few times to tell us that the food was coming, but it didn't make a difference in the wait time. They also apologized for the wait, which I appreciated most. We will come back, for the food, the service and the value, but also because you can get two meals out of one dish! More...

I just wanted to first off comment on their staffing.  I work in the area and frequet house of bites about once a week.  Everytime i am there, the staff has always been friendly.  They are a nice family and i can respect their hustle to provide for their family.  The food is also amazing.  My co worker and i typically get the gyros with fries.  The lemon pepper wings are also to die for.   If you get a chance and if they are avaliable, get a side of onion rings.  You wont be dissappointed.  The food is always fresh and seasoned to perfection.  I have ordered over the phone and never had any issues.  I also recently tried eat24 through yelp and everything was as stated on my order.  They estimated up to 45 mins, but i received a text saying it was ready in 15.  I will definately be back again.

My friend and I were looking for a place to get lunch and found this place pretty easily. When we got there it was clean and not very busy. The hostess/cashier/waitress was very friendly right from the start. She made sure when we ordered we understood what came with and what didn't. Our food didn't take long at all to come out. I ordered their famous torpedo with fries and my friend got the chicken Alfredo pasta with garlic bread and a salad. I wasn't expecting the portions to be so big!! The salad dressing was different but tasted pretty good. My torpedo was very delicious! And the chicken Alfredo was full of cheesy goodness. Overall I would definitely come back and even recommend this place to my friends. Only thing that would have made it better was if they served alcohol! More...

First off, I am not a paid reviewer. This is a legit review from a couple of true foodies. Hubby and I stumbled upon this family-owned place quite by accident and had not heard of it before. Was impressed right off the bat by the owners. They were so very accommodating and kind to us and our puppy dog. The owner is a wounded military vet, which appeals to our patriotic sensibilities. That aside, they just seemed like genuinely nice people with the cutest daughter helping out in her ice skates. Too cute!On to the food. I ordered the fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp, which came with a Mediterranean salad. Hubby ordered a Philly cheesesteak. The salad had an excellent dressing, possibly Greek with a citrus twist. Couldn't put our finger on it but tastes like turmeric or some other distinctive spice was added. Really good combination. The fettuccine, although simple, was amazingly creamy and cheesy! I think they baked the top with extra cheese. OMG! Cheese lovers dream. Shrimp were your standard large salad shrimp. Think I might try chicken in it next time. The pasta was quite delicious and will definitely order it again. Cheesesteak was your standard fare but made extra special by the seasoning on the meat and sauce. Again, there seems to be a special ingredient that really adds a distinctive flavor that sets them apart from other food. The fries were well seasoned and fresh out of the fryer. All in all, I give House of Bites the well-deserved 5 stars (not easily earned by us) and look forward to a return visit! More...

Stumbled in here because Supernatural was closed down and SCORE!Usually there's a trinity when looking for food places where one of the corners on the triangle suffers. Service. Quality. Price. You usually pick two. If it's cheap and good - service is gonna suck. If it's good quality and service - it's not going to be cheap. If the service and price are awesome - the food probably isn't that great.Okay that was a lot of preamble to saying this place hits home on all three. I didn't get a chance to really go through the menu entirely but I ordered a Mediterranean plate of food highlighted by the large portions, yummy food, and great price. Service was good too!I'm a fan and I'll be back to try more on the menu - glad I didn't break down and just grab Carne Asada Fries next door. More...

The hubby and I decided to try this place out. It's still fairly new so I know they're probably still trying to work out the kinks, but I was quite satisfied when we left. Unfortunately, the food was so good and I was so hungry I forgot to take a pic so just take my word for it ;) I ordered the Beef Kabob plate and my husband ordered the Beef Shawarma Plate. The Beef Kabob was not what I expected. I've had it before at other places and it's usually grounded up beef. This was actually tender and delicious little chunks of beef!!!! The bread was soft and hot and the side salad was pretty good too! I'm not sure if that's usually how kabobs are, but it was awesome! The husband's shawarma plate was similar except just cut up in pieces like Mexican carne asada. He liked it but I can tell he liked mine better! Hopefully this place is consistent because I'll be back!Service was fine but I can see where they might be considered as rude. I think it's a family business or something so just give them some time to get it together... More...

I've ordered delivery from them a number of times, and I've been happy each time. Food is fresh, delicious and quick. Great thing is that there isn't a delivery charge (something I truly despise, since it doesn't go towards the drivers and is basically just another way to get money from customers).

I enthusiastically endorse House of Bites. The food is really good (I had the BBQ pizza and pita with hummus as an appetizer), the menu is varied (not just one type of cuisine), the prices are very reasonable, the dining area was clean and the service was excellent. I liked that there were flat screens playing sports on the wall that I could zone out on while I ate. The owner, Hector, was very friendly when he personally stopped by my table to say hello and make sure I was pleased with everything. Everybody seemed happy and the place had a really good vibe to it. And love the wood paneling. I plan to return to the House of Bites whenever I am in the area and hungry because they have many other menu options that sound delicious that I would like to try. They also deliver to a wide range of the surrounding area, but sadly, I live well outside of reasonable delivery range or else I would have them bring me the Bites on a regular basis. More...

Just had my first meal here, had philly cheese steak and omg it was the best! They are not stingy on the meat and super tasty. I personally don't like mayonnaise so I asked without the dressing/spread.. I had choice of fries or side salad, salad dressing is delicious! Larry provided amazing customer he even allowed my bf to make small adjustment to his gyro sandwich to satisfy customers requests! Definitely making this my to go spot! :) More...

I happened by this place one time when I was getting my haircut next door. They had just opened a week before and the owner was outside and I approached him and he introduced myself. We had about an hour conversation and I told him Id be back next week to try the food. I came back with my girlfriend and he immediately recognized me which I always appreciate when businesses remember their customers. We ordered a pizza and it was the best pizza I've ever had since I've been in San Diego almost 4 years now. He came out later with some homemade desert on the house. Since then I've come here regularly trying new things and never have I been disappointed. All of their ingredients are top quality and always fresh, never frozen. They don't even own a freezer. I always get great customer service so these people complaining about bad service must be bad customers. Definitely try this place. More...

I'm not a huge meat fan but I liked the philly cheese steak, which I tried after my friend told me this place is zabiha halal. The homemade baklava was SOO good. Also the customer service is great and portion sizes were colossal! I would highly recommend checking out House of Bites. More...

I stopped by this new place recently, and was pleasantly surprised. The service here was amazing. Tom helped us pick what to order and checked in on us multiple times. I ordered a gyro plate with hummus and a side salad. It was fantastic. Tom stopped by with some baklavah on the house which was a nice surprise.The ambiance is nothing to write home about, but the location has a lot of parking and other locations around. Overall a nice place in an area that I'm often looking for a spot to pop in and out. Probably more like 3.5 stars, rounding up for now. More...

I'm literally typing a review as soon as I received my food because that's how pleased I am with it. I ordered delivery through Eat 24 (free delivery with $18 purchase!) and it took exactly 30 minutes for the food to be prepared and delivered straight to my door. The delivery was so  quick that I almost dropped pasta because of how pipping hot it was. The guy making the delivery was incredibly sweet and he was the first delivery guy to actually find his way to my door and not have me to walk up a darn hill to get my food. And I order A LOT of delivery. I ordered the 2 pasta special for $13.99, which comes with 2  side salads and 4 pieces of garlic bread and the gryos with fries. The beef ravioli is delicious as is the fettucini alfredo. They give you a HUGE portion of the salad but I haven't dug in to that yet. The garlic bread is a little bland and not garlic-y enough. I stole a bite of gyro from my friend and it was very good. The fries definitely needs seasoning but it was still hot + crispy and I have all the seasoning that we need available. More...

Came here while on a staycation with my husband and it was amazing. The pizza is so delicious it will make you want to cry from how good it is. I ordered the BBQ chicken pizza and my husband got the philly cheese steak pizza, both were amazing. For dessert we got the baklava and we dreamt about it for days to come afterwards! The food was just spectacular.   This is a family owned business and the owner's and their sons are so delightful. They make it a point to welcome you to the restaurant and make sure that you are happy and your food is exactly how you would like it to be. The service is amazing. I would drive up from Los Angeles to have this food any day, and will probably be doing that pretty soon. More...

Wonderful food.  I placed an order online and they accidentally gave me the beef shawarma plate instead of the sandwich.  I would complain, but the plate cost 30% more and came with at least 30% more food!The hummus is great, the saffron rice is tasty, and the pasta is on-point.Delivery was on time (59 minutes from placing order).Will order food from here again.

I have walked past this place a few times, and each occasion I think it would be a good spot for late night food after a few drinks.and to be fair, that is probably true.But on a whim, I stopped in here for a workday lunch after a haircut next door (yes, Barney is sober at work), and the food was pretty stellar.the subs are solid, the pizza pretty tasty - and the service was downright friendly.this stretch of miramar is odd beyond belief when it comes to food options.  this place sticks out as a good option, even when not compared to the rest of the crop More...

"House of Bites" could easily be the title of a horror movie, which is fitting, not because the thus named restaurant is horrific, but because it's a rather odd beast. Pizza AND Mediterranean? Strangely, they stop just short of doing some interesting fusion like maybe a schawarma pizza. Nonetheless, based on my one visit, they do at least one of the two cuisines fairly well.I ordered the steak in a wrap (as opposed to on a pizza), and while it wasn't necessarily the best I've ever had--there's a fantastic joint in Hong Kong of all places--this particular Bite was easily among the best of its kind in San Diego. The real highlight of the evening, however, came in the form of the excellent complimentary chocolate baklava provided by the owner. (I wonder if the owner could check on Yelp whether any Yelpers were checked in?)I'm looking forward to going back to trying the pizza, the other half of their business.Summary: Multiple bites for multiple visits.

I cannot believe there is such an amazing eatery just blocks from my home.  When I hear Italian and Mediterranean food in the same sentence, I usually worries.  But the food was amazing, and the staff are not only friendly, but also extremely accommodating.  Like, out of the way accommodating.We got mostly Mediterranean food because we used to live in El Cajon so there is a good understanding for it.  My friend got the chicken tekka and beef shawarma.  I got the calzone.  The calzone was huge and very delicious (exactly what I would expect of a good calzone) but the best of the food was the Mediterranean food.  Their saffron rice actually tastes like there is saffron, instead of just yellow rice.  The babaganooj and hummus was flavorful and didn't have the consistency of ground up chickpeas or eggplants.I'll try the Italian food more when I come back.  This is a pretty new place so I can only hope for the awesome quality of food and service to continue on.

To be honest, I didn't have the greatest expectations of this place. Another Mediterranean/Italian on Miramar?  Do we really need another one?  Well, apparently we do!My date and I went about a week after their grand opening. The folks here are friendly and emphasized that everything they make is fresh! I went with the beef shawerma plate, which came with rice and a salad. The salad came out first. It was HUGE! This side salad could have been a meal in itself. My dish took a little longer than anticipated, but it was worth the wait. The shawerma came out piping hot and full of flavor. I was surprised to see hummus on the plate. (It wasn't advertised as being part of the menu.) It was delicious, but I sorta wish there were a few pieces of pita bread to eat it with. To end the night, we were also treated to a couple of pieces of baklava on the house. The guy beamed with smile and explained that his mama made it fresh that day. It was certainly delish! Someday my date and I will be back next time to try the pizza and/or wings! More...

There's a reason why this place is busy every time I walk in at lunch time. The cashier is so sweet! She greets you by your name and remembers your orders. The brothers that run the HoB are very hospitable. Yes it's a deli, but if they have the time they prefer to bring your plate over to your seat. These gentlemen, on-top of great customer service, strive for freshness! I have never questioned if my chicken has been precooked. Everything is made on the spot. Salad is always fresh, people at work compliment how beautiful it is! I recently tried their soup, it was wonderful, not salty or oily. & ladies, if you love chocolate... You need their chocolate mouse cake in your life!!! I'm lucky to have this place so close to my job. It compliments my fresh healthy lifestyle while on the work grind. More...

Visiting from Boston, I was looking for a good place to grab a slice of pizza while in San Diego. While the pizza itself is definitely good, the service is excellent! The man who took our order, Tom, was nothing but pleasant and you could tell he was passionate about his business and that he genuinely cared about the the food they served. He told us it was a family owned business and that they made everything in house, including the desserts. I had the tiramisu, which was so light and fluffy, it melted in your mouth. If this place were in Boston, I would definitely go back again. I would recommend this place if you're looking for a good cheesy slice of pizza, and customer service that is above and beyond.

Their cannolis and baklava are perfection. My husband and I had a small white pizza and lasagna. Be advised, there is a 2 pasta special for $14 that includes salad and garlic bread. We weren't informed of this upon ordering, but it is handy to know for the next time we dine here. (And there WILL definitely be a next time). More...

I ordered lasagna and tiramisu and they were more than amazing! The moment I took the first bite, omg! I notice right away that this is a homemade fresh food that just come right out of the kitchen. Best lasagna I've had in a long long time. My company created a group order and we didn't notify the restaurant in advance about the big order so when the guy showed up it was a little late because he wasn't anticipated such a large order. I feel really bad because I know that this is a small family owned business and, according to yelp reviews below, all ingredients are prepared by the father and mother. He said while he was trying to get our orders to finish and deliver, the line at the door has already wrapped around the corner. I wish my company put in advance notice at least the day before to avoid cases like this again. More...
