Open Thread: What is the best hamburger in San Diego?

New, 634 comments

Mentor is in the process of re-evaluating the food options at Petco Park. If you've ever eaten at Petco Park, you know that they have food, but I would defy you to say that they have any "signature" items. He's asked Gaslamp Ball to help figure out what brands he should be going after and what he should be emulating.

First on our culinary tour is the hamburger.

If you know Padres history, you know that Ray Kroc loathed hot dogs. Little sausages shaped things packed full of who knows what. Owning the Padres must have been a constant source of nausea for the former owner, having to see thousands (or hundreds as it were) of fans shoving hot dogs into their mouths one or two at a time.

If there was one thing he loved, it was burgers. And as it so happens, it's the first thing that Mentor asked about.

If you could see one San Diego food brand offered at Petco Park which would it be? Example- #rockysburger?

Personally, I've never been to Rocky's but Mentor tweeted a Hodad's photo shortly thereafter. I love me some Hodad's. So have at it. What's the best burger in San Diego?

Other things that Mentor's curious about that we can discuss now or later:

  • Margarita
  • Pizza
  • Craft Beer
  • Guacamole
  • Tacos
  • BBQ

Notably absent from the list... Anything having to do with breakfast. HMMMMMMMMMM...
