Great meal near the airport!

When you get off the plane, eat here! The fish and veg are so fresh, the salad was delicious, and my hubbie's teriyaki chicken was the tastiest we have ever eaten. It's a simple set up: order at the counter and your food is served in to-go containers. We liked the fast, easy, fresh, casual food... read more

So this is a bit of fast food for breakfast. Prices are good, and the food was great, but didn't expect the stand in line to order, and the pick it up yourself. Plastic forks, and shared condiments took this down just one star for me.

Good place to grab a quick breakfast or lunch before your flight or right after your land at Kona airport. Extensive menu with everything from breakfast items to loco moco to sandwiches.

We got a good meal for a fair price, which is saying something on the island of Hawaii. We were treated like locals and had plenty to eat for about half the price of most of the tourist places.

My family of four did a take out lunch here while on vacation in July 2015 and we are so glad we did. We wanted to have a local plate lunch and came here after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. We knew we were in the right place when we walked in because it was crowded - with locals who... More

We ate at this little restaurant on our way to the airport for the sake of saving time and based on the TA reviews. The food was average and not very tasty. The chicken teriyaki was not very good! The meat was dark meat and with the skin left on it. We would not return.

The lady at the car rental agency recommended this place for breakfast and we weren't disappointed. I had the breakfast burrito and my husband had the pork chops. We both really enjoyed it. Much better than the overpriced breakfast buffet we had the next morning at our hotel.

Lots of options on the menu for lunch. Had terrayki beef platter for lunch. Very tasty and nice sized portions on the platter. very near to airport which worked well for us as we were leaving the island. It is also worth the short ride out of downtown Kona for a meal. Not fancy place but excellent food!
