I love the pulehu ribs with red velvet pancakes and ono macadamia nut sauce. Try ask the staff what football... More

Excellent banana pancakes and would go there for these. Eggs were OK, not great and cause the loss of a star in the review. Be prepared to wait 20 to 30min for a table. And cash only.

I went to boots and kimo and the waiting line was big outside . Once you get in its a small quaint dinner FULL of football theme. The service is quick and the food is good but what floored me was the macadamia nut sauce pancakes, they were dilicious! So go early and try those pancakes.

I highly recommend the macadamia nut pancakes! Every bite melts in your mouth! The restaurant is not that big so you might have to wait. Don't try to get in without having everybody in your party because they will just turn you away. Breakfast at Kimo's is a must do if you go to Oahu.

Hmm. With so many options on the islands, Boots & Kimo's has a few things going for them. But then on the other hand, not so much. We went to Boots & Kimo's after our hike up Haiku Stairs (Stairway to Heaven) and obviously - worked up an appetite. We could have eaten anything at that point. Tired + hungry... More

The macademia nut sauce on the pancakes was all that we heard it was! You can tell the waiters & waitresses are accustomed to handling a crowd because not one of them seemed stressed by it and all we super friendly!

Took the family here this morning - it has been 10 years since I was last here and thought it was time to try them out again. Boots & Kimo's is mythic for the long line to get in. We got there about 7am for a 7:30 opening time and were about the 5th or 6th table seated. When we... More

Recommended by a friend, we phoned our order ahead to avoid the daily queues and picked up two portions of delicious pancakes which were eaten on the beach. Nice pancakes in a foam sauce with bananas and macadamias. Recommended.

My cousins and I went to this brunch spot before we had to leave to the airport. Service was great, food came quick. Huge servings. Must try the banana macadamia nut pancakes!! Still dreaming about them...can't wait to go back! Worth the drive from Honolulu
