“A Real Yummy Treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Our "local" daughter took us here and the food was amazing!! I heartily recommend the Hawaiian, and the duck fried french fries with aioli sauce are to die for! Hubby had the Tuesday special - the Bison dog - and he was just as happy. This is not your Costco hot dog, so be prepared to pay a little more . . . but it's worth it!!

“Chicago kid's first Chicago dog was in Honolulu!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Being from Chicago I grew up eating Chicago dogs and this place nails them. We had a good laugh when we stopped here and it was the first time we gave our daughter a hot dog and it was an authentic Chicago dog in beautiful hawaii. In true DDD fashion this place is a hole in the wall in an industrial type area but the food was awesome and there is free parking in the back. Be prepared with cash as credit is not accepted and prices range from $5-$12. They give one refill only, which is annoying. We had four people and ordered 6 dogs. They have a frequent buyer card that gives you a free dog after ten so get one if you plan on coming back, which we did on Friday so we could try the lobster dog. Each day they have specials and we also tried a boar hit dog. My favorite was the hawaiian dog but each was great and I would try each again.

“Yummy dogs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This was an important one for us; we'd been trying to get there for four months! We finally made it Saturday and it was totally worth it!! Hubby had the andouille, and I had the Hawaiian. We both made just the right choice for our first time. Hubby loved what he called the "onion candy" on the andouille, which had the right flavors. The fruit relish on my Portuguese sausage made it sing!! We did straight combos, which means we didn't do the duck fat fries. That's next. We also went on a Saturday and sat outside taking in the fantastic aromas from the Burger Truck, so there's likely a burger in our future as well. The only thing keeping me from an excellent rating is that they were kind of slow; I'm curious to see if it's always that way or they just got slammed on that beautiful Saturday!! Do take note of the two locations and where your mapping software takes you; make sure it's the location you actually want!! We WILL go again!!

“A hot dog never tasted so good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We actually didn't even know about Hank's coming in to Honolulu. Only until we asked a local about good places to eat did we hear about it. Word to the wise, I Google'd Hank's and it came up with 2 locations. One at the International Market Place and another at Coral St. We were in downtown Waikiki and headed to the International Market Place location. Long story short, they closed this location! The only available Hank's is on Coral.

We made our way down. The selections all sound delicious and when we got them, mmmm mmmmm mmmmm!!! Best hot, errrrr, haute dog I've ever eaten. AND it was really filling. Prices range from the low $5.99 dog to a $9.99 one. They had a wild boar special that I had the first time.... killer. My favorite was the Obama dog, done Chicago style with a Hawaiian twist. You could even get a bacon wrapped dog!! We visited 3 times over the course of our 10 day stay. A great experience. The staff is amazing too. Fun, vibrant and very chill scene.

“Yummers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We can check this one off the "have to" do list. We ordered the special Buffalo dog with pineapple relish as one of the toppings. Must have duck fat fries with the garlic aioli! We'll definitely return to try the rest :) Highly recommended! OH....Cash Only.
