Where (and when!) to get dollar oysters in San Diego
This might be a shocker for some of you but YES, I like other things other than chicken wings. One of the most tastiest treats I enjoy are oysters!! Oysters can be pretty expensive so I'm all about finding deals, especially when they are half off or better yet, only one dollar!! I've been to several spots that offer $1 oysters that are legit.
Here are a few spots I think you should try if you're looking for delicious oysters for only $1 each.
