Freddy’s Drive-In: Loco Moco

Hungry? Got two bucks? Well take a look at this:

Freddy’s Loco Moco Menu

Yes, a hamburger loco moco for $1.90. Freddy’s has got to have the best loco moco value in Hilo!

Freddy’s Restaurant/Drive-In

Freddy’s has a nice eating area with big windows providing lots of natural light.

The service was very friendly and quick.

“One hamburga loco. Sunny side up. Thanks. :)

Isn’t it a beauty?

Slide your plate a little to the right and the loco moco condiments are right there.

Loco Moco Condiments

You gotta put on da shoyu, ketchup, and tabasco, or you’re not having the full loco moco experience!

Overall, this loco moco is very satisfying and tastes very good, but for the picky details…

  • Burger: Good size and taste was good. Based on the texture I could tell this was a premade burger, but it still tasted good in the overall picture.
  • Gravy: Standard brown gravy. Good amount given. Flavor was nothing special, but it was just right.
  • Egg: Perfectly cooked nice quality egg.
  • Rice: Good rice! Cooked just right.

Freddy’s loco moco is a very decent loco moco. They cut some corners to make it cheaper (like the burger), but the beauty of a loco moco is that it is a cheap, fast, and satisfying meal. So, this is a perfect representation of the essence of a true loco moco.

For those who want to dine in, Freddy’s has a restaurant area on the side.

Freddy’s is also famous for their sandwiches, which are very big, fresh and delicious. Their plate lunches are also very good. I hope to feature more food from here in the future. :)

    Kirk, same here, i wonder if it’s the cheapest in Hawaii?

    Kelly, I drank a diet coke w/lime. I stay try watchin my figure! :P A nice fruit punch woulda been betta tho!

  4. Kirk Says:

    Hey James – I was thinking, hey what about tax and remembered it’s only 4% back home – so it’s still under two bucks…here in SoCal it’s 7.75% – so it’ll be over two bucks! Not that it would be much of a difference…..

    Thanks for telling me about this place. It made a great stop for a post-Big-Island-Intl.-Marathon treat. The chili-Portugese hot dog plate (a special) was good, but the teri burger so-so (meat a little dry & gristly). Standard American fast-food items ordered by rest of our party passed muster.

    My brother told me about Freddy’s. I got to try Feddy’s Loco Moco, when we family takes our “frequent” Hilo trips again, in November.

  10. Roy K. Says:

    I got to try Freddy’s, but I forgot to order the loco moco. I thought it was just a drive in, but there’s a restuarant on the left side. The entire place is enclosed and air conditioned. The drive in prices are VERY REASONABLE. No wonder many of the Hilo folks go there.
