We are a small, casual, and chill New Zealand-inspired burger, craft beer, and cocktail joint in the Pacific Beach neighborhood in San Diego. Located just one block away from the beach, we have absolutely no dress code (other than comfort), no rules (other than having a good time and respect your neighbor), and no attitude.

In the mood for one of the BEST BURGERS in San Diego? Look no further than our 100% organic, grass-fed beef burgers that are founded from kiwi-inspired recipes. Our greens and the rest of the menu are all sourced locally from San Diego vendors and made fresh daily. Enjoy a good craft beer? Be sure to check out our ever-changing local craft thanks to the fantastic SD craft beer scene that we have in our beautiful city. In the mood for something other than beer? Enjoy one of our craft cocktails like the Strawberry Desert Mule or our rotating Cocktail of the Month!

At Bare Back Grill we also serve breakfast daily, a perfect complement to our $2 mimosas and $5 bloody marys, served daily until 1 pm. Want to enjoy specials in Pacific Beach? Cruise down Monday-Friday from 3-6 pm (all night on Tuesdays) for happy hour or amazing deals like 1/2 off burgers and ‘witches on Sunday nights!



A few yanks visiting Queenstown, on the South Island of New Zealand stumbled on to a very different, very unique burger at an institution called, Fergburger.

The Fergburger philosophy was simple, organic beef, sourced from the cattle that graze on the grassy hills just out of town. Buns from the local baker, made fresh daily. Handmade cheese delivered from a local artisan, and produce from the farm picked that morning. Paired with unique, homemade sauces, and a great attitude.

New Zealand is pure, honest, and enjoyable. From its breathtaking natural beauty to a kind, warmhearted community who enjoy laughter as much as a good pint. And the food, which is always local and simple, is respected and valued as part of nature’s gifts.

Inspired and assisted by Fergburger, we brought the quality, love, and spirit that Ferg put into their brand back to the states and created NZ Eats in San Diego.

Our little kiwi family of restaurants includes Bare Back Grill in Pacific Beach, Queenstown Public House in Little Italy, Raglan Public House in Ocean Beach, Dunedin New Zealand Eats in North Park, and Queenstown Bistro in La Jolla are all New Zealand inspired restaurant experiences.

We hope that we can share some of New Zealand with you.

Kia Ora!
