The Flying Pig Pub & Kitchen in Vista

We visited the Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum a few weeks ago and wanted to come back for their show.  This event gets all the working engines up and going, as well as some "guest engines".  It sounded fun.  It is held several weekends in the fall.

I noticed The Flying Pig Pub & Kitchen before and thought it looked promising.  So, on Sunday, we stopped in.  It is a very cute place with a retro diner feel, but in a large, open space.  The windows were wide open and many people were out on the patio enjoying the perfect weather.  We were there for brunch, around 11:00 AM.  The owner greeted us and our waiter, Manny was very friendly and nice.  I started with a raspberry drop cocktail.  Then, I had a great sandwich with fried chicken on a biscuit with fried pickles, a BBQ sauce, bacon and a side salad.  My friend wasn't hungry and just had some eggs.  Our food was excellent.

The piggy!

This was great, especially the biscuit "bun"

I would definitely return.  There are many things on the menu I wanted to try - like the chicken & waffles, the pulled pork omelette and more.  It is located in the downtown of Vista.
