Terrific burgers and onion rings. Everything tasted fresh, and the service is quick and attentive. This is what a burger should taste like! The also have glass partitions between tables and outdoor seating, which shows their commitment to preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Whichever burger you get, make sure it has bacon. If you get the double, really contemplate how well you can unhinge your jaw as it's seriously thick. The onion rings are also excellent. They've got a few tables outside. I do also have to echo...the other reviewers' opinion that the waitstaff is great. They're genuinely friendly, highly competent and attentive and really hard working.More

If you didn't get bacon, then you're missing the best thing about these burgers...you pretty much ruined the burger. Be sure to splurge and get the onion rings too...thick and crunchy, and you should eat more vegetables anyway. $11.75 and worth every penny. Friendly service, and my club soda and lime was free. Hodad's bacon cheeseburger is San Diego.More

Very good cheeseburger and very big. I ordered the double cheeseburger and it was too much but it was very good. The onion rings and fries were also very good. Worth a return trip when you want a good cheeseburger.

Good Stuff all the way around. Went on a Sunday evening and the restaurant was full. It was just two of us, so we sat at the bar. Service was great, and the food was outstanding! Great funky atmosphere. Love it.

The burgers, location, ICE CREAM, and general vibe of Hodad’s was off the chain. My friends and I really enjoyed this place and the food. Definitely will be back next time we visit SD :)
