Decided to try something different in Waimanalo instead of our favorite, Sweet Home Waimanalo. Had more of a variety. Food and value was good.

Great, inexpensive food! I'm so glad we stopped there. This was our first plate lunch. We had the garlic shrimp and the garlic ahi, and they were yummy. We'll definitely go back if given the chance.

I love pulled pork, and my aha moment came when I realized that these Hawaiians know their pig. Inexpensive option is the pulled pork sandwich, and drive about 1/4 south to the Park. Once you're at the park there are pic nick benches where we just sat and looked out at another incredible scene. Great reasonably priced food.

To see this place might make you nervous about trying it, Go for It! This little shack provided us with one of our best meals while in Oahu for 7 days and did that for under $20!!! They have the best Fish Tacos we have ever had and you are doing an injustice not to try their incredible garlic fries.... More

this place is amazing!! I had the mahi mahi and my other half had the pulled pork. Best pulled pork and best mahi mahi (in my opinion) on the island. The prices are extremely low and they pile you up with sides and food. I almost never get full and i could not finish my plate. The rice is good... More

We had heard Hawaii is very expensive. When we rolled into this little place tucked away down a side street, we could not believe our eyes. Authentic Hawaiian food from authentic natives and unbelievably reasonable prices. Can't recommend this place enough!

We had just finished up at Hanauma Bay, and found this little place on Yelp. It had really good reviews so we decided to give the place a try even though it was a little out of the ways drive. It was a nice and clean place and the staff was really friendly. We decided to try the Steak Plate,... More

We stumbled upon this place on a scenic drive around the island. Clean and friendly staff with lots of choices on the menu! I had the smoked pork sandwich and it was delicious. I would definitely like to go back to try some other items on the menu.

Found this jewel while staying at a nearby beach cottage, and made it our go-to place for breakfast (especially the fresh cooked malasadas). Fish tacos and kalbi/teriyaki chicken combos excellent as well. Service was very friendly, even at the busiest time of a holiday weekend (MLK Day). Well worth a drive, even if you're not staying just down the block.
