Here at Oakwood Escrow, we love getting to go out after work or on the weekends and grab a great burger and maybe even a milkshake with some friends. Here are four of our favorite burger spots located around San Diego!
It’s always fun to play tourist in your own city. Featured on Diners, Drive-In’s, and Dives, Hodad’s brings together the tourists and locals of Ocean Beach for some killer burgers and milkshakes. At almost any time of the day you will see a line coming out of Hodad’s, but don’t worry, it moves fairly quick and the wait is well worth it! No trip to Hodad’s is complete without ordering a milkshake, which comes with two giant scoops of ice cream on top! Don’t forget to add bacon to your burger, it comes as a crispy, crunchy, delicious bacon patty on top of your burger. And if you love french fries and onion rings? Don’t worry, just order a side of frings!

You can also order some loaded mac and cheese with your choice of toppings, ranging from caramelized onions and french onion straws, with the option of a hot dog, grilled chicken, or a burger patty. Don’t forget to order the tater tots as your side, and if you can’t get enough of mac and cheese, be sure to order the Boom Burger, but don’t be surprised if you can’t find your burger patty that’s lost in a sea of mac and cheese.
