FUUD: Papa’s Burgers in Market City

You can’t have too many burger joints.

Especially of these eateries feature 100 percent grass-fed Big Island beef, local produce and milkshakes so thick you’ll hyperventilate trying to drink them.

That’s on the menu at Papa’s Burgers, a new family-owned burger spot in Market City Shopping Center, about a mile from the University of Hawaii-Manoa campus. It opened about four weeks ago to mostly rave reviews, and I wanted to check it out myself.

The menu is small, but eclectic. It features eight signature burgers — bibimbap burger, pork and shrimp burger, black bean veggie burger — and a few sides. Some standouts include the freshly cut fries (made from whole potatoes) and the real ice cream shakes.

Here’s what my recent visit looked like:

This new burger joint opened about four weeks ago in a space vacated by a fro-yo place. (It’s located next to Gina’s B-B-Q.)
