Featured on The Food Network, Hodad's located in Ocean Beach, California - about 10 minutes north of San Diego - does indeed offer one of the very best burgers ever made.
The menu is not overly tricked up the way many burger menus are these days; rather this sticks to basics. It does, however, feature one "trick" burger, something created by Guy Fieri.
I went with the bacon cheeseburger with everything on it. Between a sesame bun, the burger is loaded with so much phatty greatness that it justfied the wait, and the hype. It is a little messy, but compacted together this is as good of a burger as I have ever had.
The ambience in this place is cool, between the license plate decor and the surfer-dude type flunkies who take your order. It's only about 200 yards off the beach.
This place is totally worth the wait, and justifies the hype.
