Senor Grubby’s, a Carlsbad Village staple for 13 years, is prominently located on Carlsbad Village Drive just one block from the beach. Senor Grubby’s offers an award-winning, unique experience in Mexican food and craft cocktails.

Most know Senor Grubby's as the location for the iconic Carlsbad Art Wall where murals come to life every other month at the direction of local artist Bryan Snyder and other regional artists. But they are that and so much more.

“Food Forward-Family First” is the Senor Grubby motto. Open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner, co-owner Justin Jachura and his team have created an atmosphere for all to enjoy, a fun menu for the kids, and one of the best cocktail bar in North County.

Start your day with a veggie omelet, buttermilk biscuits smothered in country gravy, huevos rancheros, or even chicken fried steak wrapped in a breakfast burrito! 

The Senor Grubby’s lunch and dinner menu offers so many authentic dishes ranging from tortas to street tacos to fish tacos with Modelo beer battered Tilapia to their World-Famous Shrimp Diabla. The menu goes on and on with one dish more delicious than the next.

And talk about hand-crafted cocktails! The Senor Grubby’s bar offers up a long list of breakfast and dessert cocktails including one noteworthy shout out - the Hot Mama Mango Margarita with Suerte blanco tequila, Hot Mama Jamz spicy mango, lime, jalapeño, agave, Chamoy and a tajin rim. This specialty margarita showcases the handmade jam from a downtown Farmers’ Market vendor “Hot Mama Jamz” in this delightful, collaborative drink.

But Senor Grubby’s is even more than amazing food and drink. From their “We Care Wednesdays” weekly fundraiser program that is designed to support the community’s local schools, nonprofits, and more, to their 13th anniversary on September 22nd that will benefit the Warrior Foundation, to their Christmas food drive and more, community is at the heart of the Senor Grubby’s team.
