Hodad’s redux

We went back to Hodad’s. But this time, it wasn’t the downtown location; it was the original restaurant in Ocean Beach.

We were chatting with friends the other day and mentioned we’d been to Ocean Beach before, and they said something like “Yeah, O.B. has kind of a vibe about it.” That’s for sure. It’s hard to describe, but there’s definitely a vibe. And Hodad’s fits right in.

For the first time in all the years we’ve been here, we managed to score a seat in the van! If you don’t know, it’s kind of a big deal.

After a delicious (and messy!) dinner, we decided not to get one of their legendary shakes just yet. We’d visit the beach for a bit, and then pick one up on our way out of town. We headed to the beach to walk the sand and watch the surfers for a while.

An hour or so later, when we walked back to Hodad’s, the line went out the door into the street. Although their shakes truly are the stuff of legend, we didn’t want to wait another hour to have one. Until next time, Hodad’s!
