The food is average, the dining room atmosphere is the worst, but their shave ice is excellent. Their dining room is dirty with old furniture and the walls are covered with kooky religious sayings.

This roadside place with outdoor and enclosed- but- openair seating, has a very large menu and the food is great. There were 5 of us eating and we all had something different and all agreed it was really good. Coming from Waikiki, it was a bargain also. The staff was very friendly. Our only complaint was that because it was... More

After snorkeling and driving all day my crew was starved when we hit Waimanalo and this was one of the first places we saw when looking online for a place to eat. It's not fancy and the outside dining areas leave something to be desired. However we had really good pulled pork, fries were very good, the fish and shrimp... More

When we want something quick, Keneke's is just a few minute walk from our condo. They are quick in serving, give decent size portions (sometimes one portion is enough for 2 people), and they are friendly. The food is pretty good, and you can do take out. Give them a try, you'll go back for seconds.

We were starving, as we drove around the island after snorkeling at Hanauma Bay. Wanted to find a good local place that had lots of cars. That's usually a sign that the food is good. For less than $9, you can get a good dish. We ordered 2 chicken teriyakis. The only mistake we made is that they give you... More

Stopped here on the way to the north shore for a quick lunch. Food was good. Had Kahlua pork, rice and mac salad. Portions were good and a fairly good value especially for Hawaii. Would go again if we were in the area.

Stopped here after a day on the beach and got great big shave ice ups for the whole family. So yummy!

Always yummy! Keneke's consistently pleases our hungry palettes when we arrive at Bellows! Love the Kalua pork!

This place is good for grabbing food to take to the beach for lunch. It is not an eat-in establishment, and the few sticky tables available sit right on a crowded "highway." The burgers are "divey," but good when you're in that mood. Their fries are steak-cut and incredibly under-coooked, but after three hours of boogie-boarding, they seemed like Heaven.... More

We ordered two sandwiches and really enjoyed our meals. It was nice to stop at a spot that was frequented by locals. I knew that was a good sign and I was not disappointed.
