Tried out the joint when we moved to Oahu. I had the lobster dog and the brat. The wife had the chicago dog and the duck fat fries. Everything was very good and fresh and the dogs all had a good bite to them. If we had any one complaint it would be the the Chicago dog not actually being on the seeded bun from Chicago as it was on tripple D. Not sure if this is their new norm but either way the bun was still good either way. The dogs are a little pricey but you are in honolulu.

It is an unusually busy, small restaurant with very limited seating. Expect to wait in line to order. No parking. I was expecting a bigger hot dog and could have easily eaten 2. Our hot dogs were very good and the fries were great.

we found them on a side street and it was busy, but the food was just average - not working seeking out - in my opinion. the duck fat fries were noting to write home about and the green relish is neon - can't be good for you.

Well some people might think you're crazy to be eating hot dogs in Hawaii, BUT they would be mistaken. Hank has raised the Hot Dog 'Deliciousness" level to new heights. Wonderful selection of specialty dogs with a nice assortment of toppings and sides. Yes, depending upon what time you arrive , they will probably be a line, but believe me when I say it's well worth the wait. An absolute must is an order of the french fires done in duck grease. You will crave more with one bite. So save room and don't eat before you go or you will really be challenged to select only one or two different types. The only problem with Hank's is that he isn't open in the evening. Counter seating outside and in, also additonal seating in the back parking area. No service all orders placed then self pick up. Quick, efficient staff. Great bargain for the price.

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!!
