Onoliscious!

Papa Ole's is just .2 mile from our home. 5 minutes walk and a favorite staple when we are hungry and d not want to cook. They have local fare at its best! I love their Pulehu Ribs and shrimps.

The place is a little bit of a hole-in-the-wall, but quite frankly, this is pretty standard for restaurants on Oahu outside of Honolulu and resorts. It was very busy, and we had to wait a while for our food, but it was good.

We ordered the garlic chicken, Teri beef and pork and gravy. They were all very very good! We got there at 3:30 and the ribs were all out. The only thing negative was the macaroni salad had too much mayo for my taste. Overall large portions sizes and prices were average. Delicious food!

Kalbi ribs and garlic chicken best I have had on the island. Packed at 3 pm on a Tuesday is proof that it is a local favorite.

What a great find! Such friendly staff, and really good, straight-forward food. The BLT was yummy! I wish we had hit this place up for breakfast, since we were staying less than 5 minutes away. I bet their loco moco is great!

The pulehu ribs were phenomenal! The portions were very generous. The food was so good that we came back the next morning for breakfast. Had my husband and I realized how big the breakfast portions were, we would have shared the regular sized pancakes. If we ever make it back to Oahu, Papa Ole's will definitely be on our list...

My husband said his teriyaki chicken was the best teriyaki he ever had. I on the other hand had the pulled pork with gravy. Oh my gosh it was delicious ! Their was so much food, I couldn't... More

It was tasty and inexpensive. Even tho it was busy the service was fast. I noticed it because it was busy with locals and "the Blue Book" Oahu Revealed said it was better than the shrimp trucks. I was messy so I was glad to be in our condo where I have a bathroom to wash up in. The sides... More

Just Superb. During our 4 days in Hauula we went here every day as there was no reason to try something else. Delicious burgers & breakfast options!
