Surprised to see Hodad's at the ballpark. A small, but popular location at the park. Good prices for the ballpark. Excellent burgers, a real treat at a game. Large and filling. Was glad to finally try a Hodad burger and was not disappointed. Friendly service....More

You will have to wait to get into Hodad's, but it's worth it. Get your own burger and fries, but split a malt with someone. They are huge!

Our family walked 10 city blocks to get to downtown location and well worth it. Fries good too. We did find bird scooters to go back to hotel so we had good food and fun. This is definately a surfer vibe.
