    Happy birthday T! I haven’t been to Hodad’s in ages. Their OB location was just too cramped so it made the meal a bit off for me. I thought their burgers were ‘ok’ but still think In n Out could throw down with Hodad’s anyday. Don’t they have a Guy F’s pastrami burger now too?

    That peanut butter cake looks so good! Post the recipe!

      Hi Faye – One time I got to sit in the partial van at the OB location and it was the BEST. It felt like you were in your own little space bubble away from everyone else. I do really like their bacon cheeseburgers though I do agree with you – In N’ Out is pretty damn tasty as well. I wish In N’ Out had bacon…. sigh. Yeah, Hodad’s has that lame pastrami burger. Jake got it once. IT SUCKED. hahaha

    I still haven’t been to Hodad’s, but knowing that you can get a mini burger makes me want to go now!

    And that cake looks absolutely amazing. Happy birthday to T!

      Hi Leanne – The “regular” burger is way too big for me, the mini is such a perfect size! If you go to OB ever, the best time to go is in the fall/winter, about an hour before they close. There’s no line! 🙂

  3. Happy Birthday to T!!!!!! 🙂

    Wow, that ‘mini’ burger is pretty darn big still! I like onion rings much better as well. I always end up eating my Hodad’s burger deconstructed. There’s no way I can gracefully bite that big of a burger, haha.

      Hi CC – I know, it’s plenty big to me! I can’t finish a regular sized one but a mini I can come close, haha. I don’t know what I was thinking getting the fries instead. Grrrrr!
