Saturday Night At ‘Hopdoddy’s Burger Bar’

Friends, fries, and frugality!…

Is it really so much to ask?

All we’re looking for is a place with awesome food, good beer, and prices that won’t leave us eating Top Ramen for the rest of the month.

Oh, and we’re old.

In other words, we’d like to know that wherever we decide to drop our sparse shekels, we would be able to actually hear what the person sitting two feet in front of us is saying…(keep the tunes to a dull roar, por favor).

We’ve been friends with D&M for 18 years. When we decided we wanted to go out this past Saturday night to catch up, and we set out to find a change from our old standby’s…enter ‘Hopdoddy’s’:

 I was seriously impressed with this place:

  • Nice atmosphere~ music was at a level conducive to conversation, casual (yet still felt like you were ‘out’), all booths (thumb’s WAY up!)

  • Minimal menu~ there was just enough choices to hit everyone’s preference without being overwhelming. General rule: the more items on a menu, the lower the quality…do a few things & do them well.

  • Reasonable prices~ burgers ran close to $10, drinks were all under $10 (and REALLY good! Try the Black Cherry Fizz Limeade made w/your choice Gin or Vodka…if you don’t go with Gin…well, we have little to talk about…) Great selection of a few high quality beers.

Dale had the ‘Prime Burger’ (great if you like Brie…so, not for moi), I had the sublime ‘El Diablo’ (holy crap is that good stuff!):

And of course, a delicious amber & pale ale:

We didn’t have room for dessert, but check out their shake/malt selection (you can add a shot to any if you are so inclined!):

  • VANILLA BEAN
  • OREO COOKIE
  • CARAMEL & SEA SALT
  • RED VELVET CAKE
  • STOUT CHOCOLATE
  • NUTELLA & CHOCOLATE PRETZEL
