I remember going here as a kid with family a lot it was a treat for us kids! Birthdays and dinner just because. I remember coming here with my Grandma after we went to the movies, it's one of my favorite memories of going to Bahooka!

This tiki destination has closed, but my March visit (closing weekend) lived up to my memories. The ribs were great, and the drinks strong. The good news is that the 100 aquariums are still there. The new owners are turning it into a Chinese restaurant....Don't expect to see Hawaiian style cooking like this at the new spot, though...

Like so many have said, go for the experience and atmosphere. You could spend all day just looking at the fish and the unique decor. We had wonderful tiki bar drinks and great pulled pork sandwiches for lunch. Comes with both fries and either a huge bowl of slaw, or a green salad. Really, it is one of those old... More

I used to go to Bahooka as a little girl. As I grew up, I seemed to recall that the atmosphere was great, but the food nothing special. Having gone there last night, I sure don't know where I had gotten that impression. In fact, several reviewers mention that the food isn't exceptional, but I couldn't disagree more. The ribs... More

The food at Bahooka's is not exceptional, but the environment is. It's a fun place to visit from time to time. I like looking at all the fish tanks and the semi-private booths are also fun for a small group.

On May 26, 2012 I ate at the Bahooka Ribs & Grog in Rosemead, CA. I've eaten there many times before. The first thing unusual about the Bahooka is the way that it looks from the street. The Bahooka looks like it should be someplace in the South Pacific or that maybe it was used in old episodes of McHale's... More

Bahooka, a combination restaurant/bar, is decorated in tiki/nautical themes, and is the coolest thing in Rosemead. This is a really fun restaurant!! Love all the fish tanks everywhere, love Rufus the carrot-eating fish as seen in movies. Flaming punchbowl size drinks for 2. You will definitely get your bang for your buck!!! This is a great place to stop by... More

This place is a blast from the...well...seas. They have over 100 aquariums throughout the restaurant, The decorations are collected from all over, with a leaning toward oceans/tiki/polynesia. You have to walk the entire place and check them all out. The food is good. The ribs,pork sandwiches, and chicken are filling. Good portions and pretty inexpensive, too! Say "Hi!" to Steve... More
