It was very good. The burger pwned, It was...

Dining experience at Hodad's is a Blast

Serves amazing hamburgers in three sizes (mini, single, and double), cheeseburgers or bacon cheeseburgers, and the veggie burger is also amazing! Order solo or as part of a basket with a pile of Frings – the best of both worlds (onion rings and potato wedgie/fry combo). The amazing thing with their fried food is they aren’t greasy! The double burger, which is two good-size patties, is huge and piled inside a broad sesame seed bun with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, mayonnaise, mustard, and ketchup. The menu warns that all burgers come with all condiments “unless you say otherwise”.
The milk shakes are everything you want a shake to be!

The hamburger is presented partially wrapped in wax paper, providing a way to keep it together as you eat it. Don’t take the paper off! It is there for a purpose, to keep the burger to keep the immense thing from disintegrating. Eat your onion rings and French fries first. Drink your milk shake. then tackle the burger.

Getting to Hodad’s is a blast. The street is lined with palm trees, and with a gorgeous ocean view, Newport Avenue is a colorful part of the city. It is occupied by surf shops, tatoo shops, juice bars, and high-proof bars, this rockin’ joint fits right in! Its walls are festooned with vanity license plates from around the nation; surfboards are strung above the dining room. Seating includes hard wood booths and a counter along the front wall with stools to watch the girls go by while enjoying the best burgers in town. Each booth is outfitted with a cardboard container that once held a six-pack of beer bottles. And there’s a VW front end for interesting dining along inside. Don’t miss this place

Veggie burger with cheese

Their double bacon cheeseburger is massive and delicious. I could order only that and be done, but their malts are tasty as well. Long lines are common, but the food is worth it.

Best Hamburgers in Town

The food here is absolutely amazing. Be prepared to leave here stuffed...and if you're planning on going to the beach afterwards make sure you wear something that will cover the huge bulge that will be in your stomach.
