Bobolicious!

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!

Love this little place, mostly because of the laid-back staff and their easy friendliness. There's no atmosphere to speak of, as it is tucked into a tiny strip next to the post office, but it is across from the beach, the food is terrific, and can be taken away, too. They have cool art hanging up. The ribs are fab.... More

Pretty good food here. Not much else around so...Be ready to wait for a while to get it. Ask for more sauce..they don't give you enough. take your food to the beach to avoid the flies

Love the BBQ here! All the food is great. It has been 6 years or so since I was last here and they no longer have mac salad, which went so well with the BBQ plates. Otherwise, one of my all time favorites!

Stopped in on the way back to the North Shore. We were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful grass fed beef burgers and the great staff. We would highly recommend a stop here if you are in the area

The coffee was absolutely great and from the clients who came in the Malasadas were also a hit! But unfortunately we did not get there in time to get a malasada! It is a very relaxed, friendly place, right on the road to the north shore.

We stopped here on a road trip after reading some old reviews about its great seafood - unfortunately, seafood is no longer served. We waited a very, very long time for our food and we were starving. It was good once it got to us and I loved the shave ice. Its right across from the beach and a lot... More
