Our Picks for Local Service Excellence

When new to an area, these that the types of services you really need recommendations for - These people are great!


Encinitas Foreign and Domestic They know what they are doing, they are honest and they stand behind their work. Downtown Encinitas at 901 2nd Street, Encinitas, CA 92024 (760) 632-0830

Camino Transmissions They did a complete re-build for us several years ago, recurved the shift points for my new engine, put in a towing torque converter - and they are great people. This is one area of auto repair that scares everyone. We found these people to be honest, knowledgeable, and fair. My truck really tows!!! 318 B North El Camino Real, Encinitas CA 92024 (760) 753-8850

Hoehn Acura Just one of several Hoehn family dealerships, they have treated us fairly, with respect and stood behind their work. 5556 Paseo Del Norte, Carlsbad, CA 92008 (760) 438-9599

Barber / Hairstylist

Ed's Barber Shop This is a no nonsense old time Barber Shop.  They cut it just the way you want it... and the prices are great.  Friendly.. comfortable... I always wait too long to visit them.. :-).  If I'm not in Vista... I use Ed's Son in Fallbrook... Second generation... and just as great.  They both put me to sleep... :-)  608 East Vista Way, @ HillsideTerrace, Vista, CA 92084... Give them a call at 760-758-1040


Randy D. Carlson, DMD Without a doubt... the best Dentist I've ever had.  Professional... Friendly... Comfortable... on the cutting edge of Technology... and I've never been hurt there :-)  Honest and fair... and totally trustworthy.  Not many people really like their dentist... but this one will win you over. 


Marshalls Industrial Hardware This is really a HARDWARE Store. This is where to go when you cannot find it anywhere. Nuts/Bolts/Screws/Fasteners/Washers - you name it they have it. If you are like Paul - allow several hours to "look". 8423 Production Avenue, San Diego CA 92121 (Just North of Miramar Rd) (760)271-5555

Eye Care

All about Eyes, is a small independent that was referred to me for excellent service and they are great. Ed has me in Trifocals now and I can even see the computer screen from a comfortable distance. Edward A. Richards, O.D. 4065 Oceanside Blvd., Suite C, Oceanside, CA 92056 (760) 945-2020 Even their phone number is 20/20 :-)


Terri loves it, I love buying it for her. These people are great. Met Dale through the Chamber of Commerce and waited three years to start relying upon his expertise (graduate GIA gemologist). Excellent Service, Superior Product, and fair prices. You can't beat Dale Condy at Gems of La Costa, 6985 El Camino Real, Suite 107, La Costa, CA 92009. (760)930-1200


This is one trade area where it is really tough to find excellence. Fernando Bernal, owner of Coronado Roofing in Vista, has been doing roof work for us for years now. He is honest, hard working, and stands behind his work. (760)941-2770
