Dan Diegos: In his honor

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Meet the Fulton family. They are the heart and soul of the Dan Diegos Euro cafe and pub, an authentic breath of Erin's isle that fronts Morena Boulevard. But the namesake of this inviting eatery is only here in spirit.

"Dan Diego was our third son. We lost him at age 31, a couple of years ago and it was right when our youngest son was planning this restaurant," Larry Fulton said.

Dan's high school football jersey proud hangs on the wall, and his spirit permeates the entire pub.

"His mother especially. She works here 12-14 hours a day. And I have never once heard her complain," Larry said.

But everybody in Dan Diegos' kitchen grinds it out.

"We're actually grinding up our pork, which will be used for our house-made sausage and we actually turn that into our house-made gravy," Larry said.

The menu is a traditional mix of small plates and hearty pub food, paired with a eclectic mix of Euro beers. But the showstopper at Dan Diegos Euro cafe and pub is one syrupy staple that's simply en fuego – the bread pudding, served with Jamison's whisky sauce.

"You're going to get a very deep, rich honey whisky flavor," Larry said.

Dan Diegos is steeped in tradition and warmed by the memory of its patron saint. Once you set foot inside, you'll feel just like family.
