We were hungry in Waianae after a snorkeling cruise and found this. The first thing we noticed is they had quite a few customers (all local) in the middle of the afternoon. The food is good, not great, but there aren't a lot of choices in this sleepy little town. We liked the beaches around the town and at here... More

Decided to try something off the beaten track. Jack in the box across the street... Food was good and variety for picky eaters like my kid... burger for $2! Had the garlic shrimp and it was great. As they say all meals in Hawaii come with macaroni salad and 2 scoops of rice as this did. Salad was ok.

The teriyaki was ok but not off the chart. The macaroni salad was very disappointing. We did hear after we ate there they are known for their pork chop but we going to pass on going back.

My wife and I stopped here based on the trip advisor recommendations. It was just down the road from where we are staying. The place does look rough on the outside, but don't let that scare you away, you would miss some really good food. My wife and I each places an order and it came to just over $16.... More

This place was recommended by locals. It is not "touristy" or flashy. It is a great local place with great value. Have had many good meals here and will go here again.

This location offers many menu items, and is open from about 7am to 10 pm. They have a great variety of fried rice plates, mixed plates, burgers and sandwiches to choose from. Prices are pretty affordable, they also offer catering of some of their items. Food is comparable to L & L but better. Parking not that great, as only... More

Waianae is definitely a place where all the locals live, but they don't take pride in their little city and it is pretty dirty. This little dive is right in the middle of it all and I would not trust eating here. You don't want to be sick the rest of your vacation...

My husband and I stopped there during a drive up the west coast. I had a meal with teriyaki beef, bbq chicken and luncheon meat with rice. All the meats were very good. My husband had a meal with shrimp, fish, and scallops (if I remember correctly). He loved the variety and the taste of the meal. The price was... More

Tasty, quick bbq. I had the bbq chicken and it was excellent. They give huge portions at a very reasonable price. I till crave their bbq and rice.
