This North Shore spot has gone from funky burger shack (it first opened in 1975) to institution, with crowds of tourists and locals standing in line to order the large, hand-formed burgers heaped with bacon, cheese, salsa, and pineapples. The patties are packed tight, so they tend to be on the dry side. The shoestring fries are barely salted but tasty. Kua Aina also has a Honolulu location in the Ward Centre.
