yummy!

Close to airport and car rentals. It is a local restaurant with good reasonable priced food. Be prepared to be surrounded by locals and tourists.

Local people on the Big Island love this place, and it's usually a secret kept too! The local food is amazing, in generous portions and a huge menu to apocalypse to all tastes! I was there on a weekday around 1 p m and the local lunch crowd was just starting to ease. I hear there are some days with... More

This strip center eatery is well liked by the folks that live here and we went back a couple of times so that we could try out the breakfast and lunch menus. Tons of great options for food and we were totally surprised by the size of the menu. Spam musubi and some other great island foods that are inexpensive... More

This place has really tasty fresh fish. We visited here two times during our visit and both times we were all pleased. We had the Mahi Mahi, shrimp, fried Ono, fresh red snapper, a club sandwich and corn chowder and everything was excellent!

I travel a lot to kona with my mom and her sisters, we always fly in from Honolulu on the first flight and this is the first place we stop after landing. Great local food and decent sized portions. Look forward to returning on our next trip to Kona.

The fish was juicy not greasy. I'm pretty certain it was fresh. The tartar sauce was a nice addition to the burger - complimented not over powered. My friends all had something different and enjoyed theirs as well. Hopefully I'll be back.

It's conveniently located close to the airport. We stopped by to grab lunch. Food is very average at best. I had a poke salad. It was just ok. Large portions and very affordable. Menu is a bit confusing.

Well known local restaurant to grab a bite to eat whether it's breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Wide variety of food to choose from and have a lot of specials to choose from. The best hands down. Call in an order and get ahead since it will get busy during times of the day and can be a bit of a... More
