The last time I went to Hodad's, I drove two hours out of my way on my way home to Arizona. I just had to have it. I love the metal and sports atmosphere, and the awesome personalities of the staff. I usually get a...More

I heard from more than a few folks that if I want a hamburger I wouldn't forget that I need to stop at Hodad's when I was in San Diego. So I had to check this place out. When you step in you know it's...More

Check out this place on you tube. We visited the Ocean Beach location. Hamburger and shakes were the best I’ve ever had. Long lines for this iconic place and well worth the wait!

Come with a full salad of condiments. Excellent flavor! A side of crispy onion rings was the perfect complement (with a beer, of course).

My daughter and I visited on 3/11/18. The burger was huge and tasty. The chocolate shake was probably the best I have ever had. Thick cut fries were crunchy on the outside and perfectly soft on the inside. Ranch dressing was perfect! My daughter is...More

This place had green Chile from New Mexico for its burgers? They would be out of this world. That is honestly why it didn’t get a five. Anybody that has a green Chile burger would understand. Otherwise, this is a great place for a local...More

We had a great time having dinner in Hodads. My cheeseburger was delicious and the fries tasted so good. You can choose your burger in a basket with fries, but also without them and then pick an only fries' basket. The place was really cool...More

If you’re looking for old-school, flavor-packed, juicy burgers, loads of options, and great local craft beer this is the place. Easy ordering and a bit pricey, but worth the cost. I wouldn’t recommend this for those watching their waistlines. Clean, good atmosphere. Parking can be...More

I prefer the ocean beach site for the food & people watching very near the beautiful Pacific. Don’t forget the great O Rings😎🇺🇸🎸 Downtown is still good but not like the original. And they cater.

Yes it is. If you're at SeaWorld then simply follow your GPS to Hodads in Ocean Beach. You probably do not need to jump on the expressway, but if you do its a short drive.
