Hodads OOR


The folks at Hodads.com decided, in keeping with their laid-back ethos and whatever else is in their beer, they’d simply put in whatever they want in whatever space they want. From there, it’s been a long ride into the eccentric absurdities that make their blog the must-follow site it is today.

Hodad's is a small chain of hamburger restaurants in San Diego, United States, established in 1973 by husband and wife Byron and Virginia Hardin, who operated from a single burger stand until 1979. Following the death of co-founder Byron Hardin, their son Mike Hardin assumed operating responsibilities and ultimately took over the management following his mother's death in 1989. Hardin moved the restaurant to its current location on Newport Avenue in Ocean Beach, later opening additional restaurants in Petco Park and on the corner of 10th Avenue and Broadway. Mike Hardin died in 2015, leaving the business to his children Shane and Lexi. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

Hodads, Ocean Beac

If you have an aversion to fun and the best burger to ever touch your lips, then Hodad’s is not the place for you. It’s been the seaside burger joint of choice for laid-back Ocean Beach surfers since 1969. The playful name emerged from the surf community’s inside joke; a hodad is a person who hangs around surf beaches with a board, but in reality is a poser who doesn’t know how to surf. All the same, this restaurant welcomes surfers and hodads alike! (Source: www.gosandiego.com)
