I guess for really upscale food one has to spend big bucks for Roy's. This place has nice atmosphere and tasty enough food and might be a better choice during happy hour.

We live on Oahu. We just discovered this hidden little gem! All homemade food! Portions are BIG! If you come famished, you won't leave that way! You might even need to pack it back to your hotel frig! Great food! Parking is tricky! It's tucked in between homes in a little neighborhood! It's great food! Great prices! And you'll need... More

I ate here because it was on Man vs Food. I had the Loco Moco and I cleaned the plate. Very good food, its a small place and have to park on the street which can be a challenge. But if you visit the North Shore...Its a Must !!!

Got here at 11.30 but breakfast stops at 11 so had early lunch instead. Very disappointed with what we got- I ordered mahi mahi tempura but got what looked like 4 fish nuggets with 2 scoops of plain rice & scoop of tasteless mac cheese. Husband had mixed plate which was stringy teriyaki beef, 2 breaded shrimp & 2 mahi... More

The macadamia pancakes are awesome!!! Sooooo yummy. We also ordered the Hungry Hawaiian. We ordered the bacon, pork links, and Portuguese sausage. The Portuguese sausage was really good.

I was out driving around the island and was hungry and stumbled upon the Hukilau cafe sign. Its tucked away off the main road so parking can be difficult when busy. I arrived 15 minutes before close and was welcomed openly to join them for lunch. I ordered the Hukilau burger as the menu choices seemed to all be interesting.... More

Finding parking was a bit of a pain but once inside the food and atmosphere was worth it. I had the Portuguese sausage and eggs and my girlfriend had the Hawaiian style french toast. Even though I'm more of a Pork Roll kind of guy those sausages were awesome! The staff there was super friendly and even spoke with us... More

Very good loco moco and Hukilau Burger, which has teriaki beef on top of the burger. Nice little cafe that we saw on man vs Food.

Hukilau is definitely a "locals" spot for breakfast, which was a good sign. We only had to wait about 10 minutes to get a table and once we were seated the service was great. The food was delicious, the staff was friendly, and this ended up being the cheapest (but best) breakfast of our trip!

We stopped for lunch and ordered Hukilau burgers and fries. The food was awesome, one of the best burgers we've every had. Friendly and efficient staff made our meal even better. We enjoyed the humour and warmth of all the local people, they made us feel at home.
