    Best bacon cheeseburger ever created. Crunchy deliciousness in each bite! Get the mini if you don't want to over stuff yourself.

    Ever had a burger too tall to bite ? ! Hodad's signature sandwich is builtfor large burger lovers! I usually order a basket with awesome onion ringsand skip onions on the burger itself.

    The burgers here are a major disappointment. They were dry and not juicy whatsoever. They paled in comparison to NY's Shake Shack burgers. And a "small fries" is huge! It's enough to feed 4 ppl.

    Little grimes, but don't judge a book by the cover on this one. Solid burgers. Whatever you do, get bacon on it. They deep fry it and then grill it into a patty. Also get your onion grilled - Bangin

    Seriously, skip the line and head to Neighborhood if you want a real burger. Or not, stay at Hodads so I won't have to wait in line.

    Pretty good burgers, nothing amazing. The reviews here all seem accurate, except the burgers themselves aren't huge. It's the toppings that make them really tall. The Neapolitan shake was great

    Unfold one flap of the wrap around the burger so that all the awesome, fatty grease drips down into your fries or onion rings. Of course don't forget to eat over your basket or it will be in your lap

    Consider taking a few pieces of onion off your burger before attempting to eat. It will shrink the burger in size, make the process of eating easier and have less impact on your breath afterwards.
