Visit Escondido’s 6th annual Dine Out Escondido! Restaurant Week (DOE) is happening January 27 to February 2 at over 30 restaurants in the downtown and all around Escondido. Held in partnership with California Restaurant Month, this culinary tourism program runs during the last week in January. No tickets required, just show up, ask for the DOE special and make memories with friends and family.
“With over thirty local eateries offering unique specials, our restaurant week gives everyone the perfect excuse to finally get out to that great restaurant they haven’t tried yet, all while giving back to kids’ programs at the North County Food Bank,” said Katherine Zimmer, tourism manager for the City of Escondido.
Continuing to support of the North County Food Bank, many Dine Out Escondido! restaurants are donating $1 of every special they sell during this week to the North County Food Bank’s Food 4 Kids Backpack Program. Last year DOE restaurants raised $2,235, feeding twelve kids for an entire year. Zimmer said she would like to double that number this year.
New to the program this year is the addition of DOE on the Kynbo restaurant app. Each restaurant is listed with their full menus as well as their DOE specials on this unique new foodie app.

To help diners quickly find all DOE eateries during restaurant week and long after, DOE has partnered with KYNBO, a new dining app and service designed by chefs and owners.
One tap takes diners to your menus, specials, and events. Guests can find exact cravings, from a dish, to type of cocktail, who has kids menu, happy hour, or vegan friendly. Diners can also make reservation, get navigation, and recommend favorites places to family and friends all from the free app. There are no reviews on Kynbo, only private feedback.
Kynbo is also a powerful marketing tool for restaurants to let their nearby diners know about Specials, Events such as live music, or send a Reward with a few simple clicks. They can also auto update websites and FB menus from their personal Kynbo portal.
