Like a little sass with your burger? This funky joint in Ocean Beach delivers plenty along with world-famous bacon-cheese burgers, fries, onion rings, and shakes. Don’t be put off by lines out the door, they move quickly and the wait is worth it. Once inside, marvel at the hippy-beach decor of beat-up surf boards and license plates from almost every state, and at surfers with big appetites chowing down huge, messy burgers. A miniburger is a less-filling option for customers

from around the world making a pilgrimage to this, the original Hodad's.Newer outposts—as family-friendly as the original—are downtown and at PETCO Park.
