I'm forever driving past the intersection of Atkinson Drive and Kapiolani Boulevard, but never thought to stop to see what was located on the corner. Ummm....there's a 7-11 there, but I didn't really think there was anything else to be found there. Until, of course, a friend told me about this place.
You Hungry? is a local style plate lunch place that serves food in either Hungry? size or Sorta? Hungry size. They have quite a bit on the menu, and while most of the items are common to plate lunch places, there are some uncommon choices as well.
Today, I had the cheeseburger with french fries (US$3.50)
It was a nice sized homemade burger served with some nice thick cut french fries. Everything is cooked to order, so this is real homestyle eating! I like the fact that this burger is served with lettuce, tomato and onions at no extra charge. Most places would call this a deluxe and charge an extra 25-50 cents. If you wanted to, you can even substitute the french fries with tossed salad or tuna macaroni salad at no extra charge as well.... How's that?
Since my friend brought me here, I was obliged to buy him lunch as well.... He decided to have the mahimahi loco moco Hungry? size (US$6.05).
Look at how good that looks! You get the standard rice (looked like more than 2 scoops to me!), topped with a couple of huge pieces of mahimahi, brown gravy and a couple of fried eggs! Instead of the standard tuna macaroni salad, which is delicious here, he opted for the tossed greens...so that he wouldn't have too much of an artery clogging experience!
Since this was my first time here, I must say that the food was excellent and a great value as well! I'll be sure to come back to try the other items on the menu real soon!
