One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

New Hodad's in East Village | San Diego

I visited the new location of Hodad's in the East Village of downtown San Diego nearly a month ago. Maybe a week after they just opened. I also wanted to avoid the long lines at the Ocean Beach location too. I know it's a late post, but I wanted to share the pics I took of their delicious burgers and they're huge. My only issue with this location would be parking. It was kind of hard to find one open and ended up parking a couple blocks away. But maybe that's not a bad thing since I would need to find a way to work it off with the amount of food they give you.

So, here are some interior shots of the burger joint. Ignore my big head in the way in pic two. HAHAHA!

We ordered the Frings. And this happens to be an order of half fries and onion rings. Pretty creative with the name I must say. They have a smaller batch of Frings, but we got the regular size. I was in a group of four people and it was more than enough to feed us. So, the half size would have been a better fit for us. The onion rings were really good. Better than most places and the fries were ok. I wanted to eat more of it, but I knew a large burger is on its way to meet me. Plus I ordered the milk shake.

I normally don't order milk shakes, but after parking good four or five blocks away on a warm day, I needed something to cool me down and satisfy my sweet tooth. So, a Strawberry Shake is a must. Plus, burgers and shakes go together like - you get the point. I'm not a shake connoisseur, but it definitely hit the spot that's for sure.

Please forgive me with the photos. My white balance was off from the flash bouncing yellow back cause of the yellow paper. Anyways, not knowing what I'm getting myself into, I ended up getting the Double Bacon Cheeseburger. It comes with your basic fixings of lettuce, tomato, pickle, onion, mustard and ketchup. And this burger is no joke! It was awesome and was worth every penny. It was so large; I wasn't able to finish it. I don't remember the last time I couldn't finish a burger. It just doesn't happen, but this time it did. The burger was packed with flavor in every single bite. It was also juicy and it had a good amount of bacon in the burger. Where, many places lack it.

Here's a photo of the Single Cheeseburger. Not quite as big as the double burgers, but plenty big for others. Everyone else ordered these and enjoyed as well.

The East Village location for Hodad's is perfect except for the parking situation. Short to no lines like the Ocean Beach one and it's closer for me too. I love that burger so much; I'm not willing to try anything else when I go there. It's that good! It's one of the best burgers in San Diego and I dare you to name another place that's better. It's SO GOOD! Can't wait for my next visit! Soon enough...
