Here Comes the Sun at Sol Mexican Cocina

Hop Doddy

The Artisan Heart of Hopdoddy

The thing about Hopdoddy Burger Bar is, you don’t expect it to be a place where they care so much. The décor is easy-going and friendly, the set up is casual (you order up at the counter), the colors are bright and youthful and they primarily serve burgers. Eh, a burger joint! Nope. Here are…
