Friendliest service, yummy BBQ

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... read 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

Stop here - it is worth it. It is next to the 76 gas station and Kaaawa post office, across the street from the beach park. It is toward Polynesian Culture Center and after Kualoa Ranch if coming from Kanehoe side of the North Shore Loop. My mom ordered the brisket and she said it is such tender meat, perhaps... More

We stumbled across this place while makingthe North Shore loop on Oahu. We ordered the brisket plate and some Bobo cheesebugers, and all were delicious. The brisket was super tender and had just the right amount of smoky flavor. The burgers were lean and juicy and served on homemade buns. Seating is limited, but there's a beach park right across...
