Big Mac Blog search for the world's best burger ...

PhotoOCEAN BEACH, California - The line was 10 deep out the door at 8:30 on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was packed. All for a burger. Totally worth it. 

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 fries were of the wedge variety, and forgettable, but the onion rings are outstanding. I'm not sure if Photo-1this place changes the oil in the fryers, but ... who cares? We're all going to die anyway. 

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.
