The owner says in his interview on the Food Network's show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, that after 40+ years in business they are "An overnight success!" They certainly deserve the accolades as every time I'm in SD generally and Ocean Beach specifically I try to go in for a burger. No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem. But since the show there is a disheartening line-up down the street. Signature license plates line the walls and that is where I copied the idea to get my own set : OCN BCH. Go and enjoy, even if you have to wait to get in.

At first I was a little skeptical but as we sat down and got comfy it was wonderful. I got the guido burger and my wife got the mini. Fantastic food and great staff. Friendly and helpful. Will be going again in the future. Worth the trip and I would recommend this place.

A great bacon cheeseburger, surf beach experience and a window seat at the counter. Loved the atmosphere, large tasty burger and all the fun of the beach.

We found this in the top 10 on Tripadvisor and so we went to take a look. Must admit, would never have gone there without knowing the reviews upfront... Not really my kind of restaurant but since it got such good reviews...we took a chance. There was a pretty long line outside, the decoration looks so cheap and not put in any effort to make it look nice...more like a surfclub but low basis.We were happy they put us in a booth and not on the long table. The guys working there also 1 of a kind, but very friendly and helpful! We ordered our burgers and when they came..OMG they were sooooooooooooo good! This is definitly a must do visiting San Diego! This was THE best burger we had in ages and we had a lot of fun!
