Remodeling in Santee

If vast open fields, tree lined canyons, and endless grassy hillsides sounds like paradise, then Santee is the place for you. With approximately half of its land undeveloped, Santee is one of the few cities in San Diego with space to grow. What’s more, several refreshing lakes lie within Santee’s borders. Talk about country living at its finest—and all within a 30-minute drive from downtown San Diego.

A place to call home

A haven for families, Santee boasts numerous community events each month, including the highly anticipated Summer Concert series throughout June and August, and the Santee Bluegrass Festival each September. And should down home cooking be the thing that brings a smile to your face, you’re definitely in the right neighborhood. Here’s a run down of Santee’s famous eateries:

  • Janet’s Café and Deli

    Huge, hearty portions are Janet’s specialty. By the time you’re through eating your French toast combo with sides of fried eggs, bacon and hash browns—it’ll be time for lunch

  • Phil’s BBQ

    The beef ribs here are some of the best you’ll sink your teeth int. So tender, the meat falls off the bone. Just be sure you ask for your sauce on the side—its vinegar tang has serious bite

  • Anny’s Fine Burger

    A hole-in-the-wall for sure, but that’s part of Anny’s charm. With a huge menu of over 30 types of burgers, you’ll be left in a quandary. But no mater where you’re taste buds lead you, Anny’s generous portions and epic sides of sweet potato fries will leave you more than satisfied

  • Cheesy Express

    A mecca for grilled cheese lovers, Cheesy’s doesn’t skimp on size—so be sure you have a lot of napkins handy. While the BBQ & Mac sandwich is a house specialty, more adventurous types swear by the ooey-gooey goodness of the S’more Melt
