My husband and I came here on our vacation to San Diego. We were not disappointed in the least. The burgers were to die for and the onion rings were great. We only wished we had gone for those fabulous looking milkshakes. Would eat here...More

Hubby kept reminding me that we HAD to visit Hodad’s for burgers while in San Diego...and he is super-healthy...usually depriving himself of cheeseburgers, so it was a real treat. We each had the single bacon cheeseburger which are huge and juicy...so juicy he ruined his...More

Great stop if you’re looking for casual food. It’s a pretty small, busy place, but they keep people moving. Plenty to see in the immediate vicinity walking also

Hodads burger and chocolate shake are more than being awesome! Servers were friendly and it is the best place in San Diego for burgers!!!

Several years ago we saw Hodad's featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. We couldn't wait to try it and it was worth it! The wait can be long, we have been there when the line was around the corner or when it was just along...More

Get there early- the line is long. The burgers are fantastic- a mini is the size of a burger everywhere else. Great chocolate shakes. You go here for the food, not the service. Don’t expect a smile or attentive service, but go anyway- good food,...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.
