Hopdoddy got its start in Texas and with so many burger bars popping up, Hopdoddy's really stands out with the fresh ingredients and huge portions. The beef and brisket burgers are
ground in house all day and buns are baked there too! If you're not feeling the beef you can get a tuna, turkey, lamb, chicken, bison burger, vegetarian black bean, or even a corn patty too. Fries are beyond amazing, milkshakes extra thick, and the best
news, a full bar with house made Limoncello! We stopped in at the Playa Vista location at the new Runway. We started with some Truffle Fries (5). For the record, I must say; these are truffle fries I would hold in esteem with those of The Lobster or any other
truffle fries I have raved about! Try them! You must! A Vanilla Bean shake ($5) was delivered next. Yep, you guessed it. It was thick and frosty with a pile of whipped cream that only this blogger could appreciate. Now for the sandwich. I had the Classic Burger
($7.25) with angus beef, red leaf lettuce, white onion, beef tomato, sassy sauce and the addition of bacon. It's a "juice-running-down-your-arms" burger. This is your fair warning! My husband, Mr. I Hate Burgers, enjoyed The Thunderbird. ($10) Chicken, applewood
smoked bacon, avocado, and lots of substitutions! Service was excellent too! The bar was hopping at 1:30 on a Saturday afternoon. Grab a Ballast Point Sculpin ($8) or a Hey, Neighbor! ($8), a Bloody Mary with Beer and Tomato juice and spicy house blend
and sit yourself down with some Google types, EA gamers, or maybe even some LA Clippers! Hopdoddy Burger Bar 1120 W. Jefferson Blvd. Playa Vista (310) 410-2337 Hours: Sun-Th: 11 a.m.- 10 p.m. Fri-Sat 11 a.m.- 11 p.m.
