Back in San Diego for a bit of sun but this time with the chillin's. And taking them to Hodad's for a burger was a must. Unfortunately could only do a drive by on Sunday as the street was packed and the lineup long. Resorted...More

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

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.

There is almost ALWAYS a line here - even 1/2 hour before opening! There's a reason for the line - it's that good here. The burger is the best you'll ever eat, and even the vegetarian burger is superb. The fixings help put the burgers...More

I would recommend getting there early or you will wait. We should have split a few burgers, they were huge! Fun loud atmosphere!

Was visiting friends in Carlsbad and my husband had to visit Hodad's in Ocean Beach. So glad we made the trip. Waited in line about 20 minutes. Inside was eclectic, fun and funky! Burgers were delicious! Shakes were some of the best we've had! Loved...More

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.
