Owner Henry "Hank" Adaniya is the restaurateur who gave celeb Chicago chef Grant Achatz his first big break at the late restaurant Trio in Evanston, Illinois. So it's no surprise that his idea of a hot dog involves things like wild boar sausage with cran-apple relish. In 2006, Hank moved to his parents' home state to open this DIY chic storefront in the regentrifying neighborhood of Kakaako. Go classic with the Chicago Dog, made with the traditional fixings (including
neon green relish) or gourmet with the butter-seared lobster sausage topped with garlic-relish aioli. And always get the duck-fat fries with a house-made dipping sauce (curry ketchup is a winner). Hank's now serves burgers too. Forget cola; here you can have island-fresh drinks like hibiscus lemonade and lilikoi-lime soda.
