In 1969, Byron and Virginia Hardin began serving the world's best burgers at the first Hodad’s on the end of Santa Monica Avenue in Ocean Beach. After a few moves, in 1991, the restaurant opened the doors to its present spot in the heart of Newport Avenue. Twenty years later, a second restaurant greeted the public in beautiful downtown San Diego. A year later, Hodad’s partnered up with the San Diego Padres and opened in Petco Park (exclusively during the Padres season). The employees of Hodad's are hard-working, dedicated, and show their love for Hodad's everyday they come to work: “the best f**king staff anybody can ask for,” as Bossman used to say. With a passionate team and fantastic food, Hodad’s has created a delicious combo of success that is enjoyed by tourists and locals alike. Hodad's has been passed onto third generation Shane and Lexi Hardin.
