And the winner is: wehearthawaii's photo of Chibo's hamburger steak, chosen for 1) value, especially for a sit-down Waikiki restaurant; 2) how much the photo made my stomach growl before lunch; 3) the photo composition.

wehearthawaii wins a $25 gift certificate to Salt. Congratulations!

Keep those cheap eats photos coming! The contest runs until the end of the month and we'll be picking a winner every Wednesday. Sign up for the weekly Biting Commentary Newsletter to have the results and all your dining news delivered right to your inbox.
