After a day of sunning yourself at Ocean Beach, build your strength up with a double bacon cheeseburger at Hodad's. The burgers here are big, tasty and sloppy, with lots of fixings (make sure you get the blue cheese) - yet affordable. The beer here is served in mason jars.

This classic southern California burger joint has a fun, beachy vibe. The floor is sprinkled with sand from surfers shaking out their flip-flops and the walls are decorated with hundreds of licence plates from all over the United States.
