Known For

Burgers

Walking into this Kaimuki joint is like teleporting to the golden era of 80s hip-hop: boomboxes hang on the walls, not far from portraits of Michael Jackson, Notorious B.I.G., and Will Smith in the Fresh Prince years -- and that’s before you get to the bar, where you’re greeted with a menu printed upon a real vinyl record. Franky Fresh is a gangster’s paradise (sorry, we couldn’t resist) of decadent milkshakes and burgers, and whether you get the punning names or not (Marky Mark, anyone?), these all-local, grass-fed patties are some of the best on the island. Just be sure to get there early, as it’s a popular destination on the weekends.
