What's Cooking?

Wow has it been that long Kirk?! Time sure flies! I still prefer a Rocky's but I learned to appreciate a Hodad's over the years. My last burger at Rockys a month ago was a little over cooked and not as juicy as they usually are so I guess they can have their off days too..


I haven't been to Rocky's before but have heard good things about it.


that looked and sounded awesome!


Plenty of burgers lovin in SA,TX


Hi Dennis - I've had rather dry burgers at Rocky's in the past too. This one was really good though.

Hi CC - It's a good basic pub burger.

It was good Kat, better than I recalled.

Hi Billy - I would hope're in Texas! ;o)


No more bacon at Hodad's?

Ed (from Yuma)

Looks and sounds tasty.


Hi Jan - Of course they still have bacon at Hodad's. What I'm referring to is how much that burger is dimisned by not having bacon on it.

Hi Ed - Still good after all these years. I hope all is well.


All these new burger chains have just made me want to go back to Rocky's. I've been thinking about doing so for quite a while but always so lazy about driving into the PB area. This post really makes me want a burger.


Oh. Duh!

By the way, my ex bosses bought a bar in Oceanside and started serving burgers (they met in PB). I haven't made it up there yet, but the burger in the photo doesn't look too bad:


Hi Kirbie - Yeah, I know what you mean....sometimes a good straight-forward old fashioned burger is what does the trick.

Hi Jan - That looks interesting.


Bacon makes everything taster better.


Yes it does Billy

IMHO, Rocky's is still hands down the best SD burger. Like you, I've wavered with Hodad's, but every time I get a Rocky's burger, I think to myself "why did I question this burger". It's beautiful in it's simplicity. Juicy, messy in a good way, salty, beefy.

I hate an overly busy burger, which is why I love Rocky's. I have those same blue collar roots Kirk and know where you are coming from.


Hi Christina - I totally agree!
