Owner Phil Mack Chung comes from a background of restaurant owners with his dad, a chef of more than 30 years, at one point operating a dozen restaurants. After moving to Huntington Beach from Lake Tahoe to help his dad during a sickness, Chung was inspired by local culture and dining experiences and wanted to carry on the family tradition in this environment. "I wanted to build a restaurant that represented me, the people in my life and HB," Chung says. "Laid back, healthy, great music, drinks and amazing, unique food. Everything you dig is at Digg's." Chung used all his resources to make it happen, pulled together a skilled slew of friends to handle everything from carpentry and painting to running the kitchen and bar. And what started out as a dream soon became a reality.

Digg's chic design is complemented by more relaxed details reminiscent of the local beach culture with surf art and photography as well as eight HD plasma screen televisions. Digg's will also offer outdoor dining, a full bar and a happy hour menu to satisfy the casual after-work cocktail or the perfect ale to enjoy while watching the game.

Digg's is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday at 8052 Adams Ave. in Huntington Beach. For more information, call (714) 960-3670 or visit http://www.diggsrestaurant.com.
