If you’re ever near Oahu’s north shore be sure to visit Papa Ole’s, it’s a small place with big taste. They make a great burger and an even better BLT. Keep in mind it’s not a touristy place so don’t expect a lot of frills.

Found this little gem while driving around the island one day/night and needing dinner. Located in a shopping center next to a Dominos and grocery store, it's definitely a local hangout. We ordered a plate with short ribs and chicken and a shrimp platter. Had...More
