Many Ocean Beach locals think these are the best burgers in San Diego. Watch for lines at lunch.

Iconic San Diego Burger Joint which was featured on Diners Drive ins and Dives TV show. Always a line during the Summer but worth the wait. Wednesday is the best time to beat the line.

The Hodad's burger is widely credited with putting Ocean Beach on the map! Now a Guy Fiere favorite, it has long been known that when anyone hears someone is heading to San Diego, Hodad's will usually be the first thing they want to tell you about!

Asian Restaurant
“OB Noodle House comes from humble beginnings in the heart of Ocean Beach. Having immigrated from Southeast Asia through a sponsor family, the Yeng brothers grew up in OB working at his parents’ donut shop, OB Donuts. When the opportunity to open a restaurant of their own arrived, OB Noodle House was founded with a simple mission: simple, delicious meals, served quickly. Now with two locations, the original on Cable Street, and Bar 1502 on Niagara Avenue, as well as a music hall on Newport Avenue, the OB Noodle House family has become a mainstay in Ocean Beach, always giving back to the community that supported the Yeng family so much the past few decades. OB Noodle House is known for our signature pho bowls and Asian-fusion dishes. Featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, it’s the meal Guy Fieri says “You’re going to have a pretty tough time finding it this good.” If you don’t take Guy’s word for it, check out our our 4+ Star Yelp reviews, 4.5 Stars on Trip Advisor, or 4.4 rating on Zagat!”
