The last time Morgan Lynch and Koral King visited Hodad’s, the Ocean Beach burger restaurant, on a Saturday, the line was around the corner.
Near closing time on a recent Monday night, the line was a little shorter — but there was still a line nonetheless.
“Nothing like a good burger,” Lynch said.
Hodad’s was used to long lines during the weekend and the summer. But then the burger beach spot got national attention from the Food Network and CNN, and now the lines have become part of the Ocean Beach landscape.
Co-owner Michael Hardin sees those lines and sees room for growth. He’s planning a second location — Hodad’s Too — for downtown that is supposed to open this summer.
“We’re striking while the iron’s hot,” Hardin said. “We heard from local people how grateful they are that we’re doing well, but they can’t get in. This will give them another option.”
