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...

We read about this in "Ohau Revealed," read the review and decided to stop in. Our family ordered brisket plate, pork quesadilla, & the pork shoulder plate (I think) plus an order of garlic fries. Deliciousness. Also to note, no macaroni salad! Maybe available on request, not sure. The restaurant is mostly walk out. A very small hot eating area.... More

I ordered the brisket plate w/ fries and a chocolate filled malasada (my first). The brisket was very flavorful and super juicy. The malasada was super fresh and tasted like a fresh creme filled donut. I also took the chance on a mochachino shake and was pleasantly surprised with how good it was. Definitely worth the stop if you are... More

Bobo's is small and doesn't look like much. but the BBQ is really good! i had the pork shoulder sandwich and it was probably the best BBQ pork sandwich i've eaten on Oahu. there aren't many places on Oahu that cook slow-cooked BBQ. Bobo's does and they do it right. my kids had the BBQ pork quesadilla and the Bobo... More

Stopped in here to get directions and was offered a fresh-fried malasada. I ended up buying three and came back the next day for more! Staff is very friendly and the location is a great stop on the way up to the North Shore, the PCC, or Kahana Bay.

We finally stopped at Uncle Bobo's on the last day of our 12 day vacation because the guidebook to Oahu said it was great. Every morning I would stop at the 7-11 next door to get a drink and the appearance of the place is what kept me away. Boy was I wrong. Never judge a book by its cover.... More

My husbands and i stopped in and got the 1/3 rack of ribs and brisket plates each $15. They each came with a buttery whole grain rice and either beans or coleslaw. My husband said the beans were ok and i thought the coleslaw was good had maybe mango and chipotle in it? This it's a very small place and... More
