It is exactly what you would expect from a plate lunch place. Their Kalua Pork and Hawaiian Beef BBQ are generously sized and are very tasty. I would definitely recommend stopping by and checking out the experience...it is worth it. You gotta get the macaroni salad as a part of your lunch!

Got food from here out of desperation because it was late and the kids were asleep in the car from a long day of beach and hiking. Big mistake and what a waste of money. The food tasted as unappetizing as it looked. And it was pricey to boot. Hope I can save someone from making the same mistake I... More

Let me start out by saying the food was ONO!!! The mixed rating was from the way that the counter people were. I called in my order and the lady who took it was down right rude. We lived on the Big Island for quite about and moved back to the mainland. I must not have sounded local enough for... More

The food was good. It was like a small cafe or fast food restaurant, so don't expect much atmosphere (kind of interesting though). There were many Chinese type items also.

stopped in for a takeout lunch… I got the grilled chicken bowl. It was $8 and easily enough for three people. The chicken was delicious, I would totally go back.

Visited here hoping for a local flavor and were disappointed. The bbq was swimming in sauce and the location had buckets catching leaks from the rain and was not clean. Next time we will head to the food court in the same plaza instead.

This will work in a pinch. But do not expect high quality food. Hot and quick. The best thing on the menu when we have dined there is the mac salad. But if you are looking for something quick and easy and you are tired go here.
