BBQ Yay!

I admit I was skeptical because we reside in the BBQ capital on the mainland, but I was pleasantly surprised. The Q was great and the fries were great.

I loved the BBQ pork quesadilla. The fries were hot and crispy, just how I like them. I sampled my companion's BBQ pork sandwich and gave it a thumbs up as well. The drinks are a little pricey, but that's not unusual in Hawaii. They only had two guys working the day I visited, but they were hustling and polite.... More

This sauce is so awesome we sent a case home. They also have homemade ginger lemonade. Tiny place next to the post office in Kaawa.

We have been searching for BBQ since arriving on the windward coast of Oahu. After a beautiful,drive and a magical beach time, we found it. Food was superb. Staff was most pleasant, efficient and helpful--even made sure we were staying dry outside under the eaves/umbrella in one of hawaii's surprise showers.

We had a terrific meal at a reasonable price. The place is small, but the food is delicious. One of the best meals we had on Oahu!

This is in the north shore area and worth the drive. We had been at the beaches and were planning to eat somewhere else but there was a water line break. It's a hole in the wall but was delicious. I am not a huge BBQ fan ( a sin living in N C ) but my pork sandwich was... More

We are so glad we turned around to eat lunch here! Very casual eatery right across from the beach. Order at the counter and the nicest staff brings your food to one of about 6 tables. I had Thai chicken soup and the BBQ'd drumstick plate, my husband had a grass fed beef burger. DELICIOUS!!!!!! End your meal with house... More

If Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives hasn't found this place yet, they need to. Best BBQ sauce ever. The pork was so incredibly tender, just wow! Do not pass by this place. I'm completely picky about BBQ, it has to be good to be worth my time. This place is worth it!
