    Hamburger is HUGE! Very good option for a local burger. Service was really good and I really liked the potatoes. Beer comes in a jar mug!

    Servings are huge. Fries are not gluten free. They did a nice lettuce wrap for my burger. Staff is friendly. Prices are very reasonable. Shakes are more like ice cream than a shake.

    The burgers, obvi. Such great beef patties and good rolls matched to icy cold fresh condiments and lettuce-tomato-onion-pickle on top. The fries are bigger than my fingers-mix the Cajun sauce w ranch

    One of the best places for burgers and beer, but good luck finding parking during peak downtown hours.

    Before trying your first hodad's burger, please go to their first location. Maybe it's the vibe🌊 but an experience worth going back.. Downtown location, burgers😏 shakes👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

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

    Rarely a wait & just as good as OB. The half-order of Frings will be enough for 4 people.

    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
