Almost every variety known. Always fresh, right next to the ocean and the best Poke in all of the islands IMO. My girlfriend never tried it but was hooked after the first sample lol. Always had a great time there.

Not sure why this is rated as # 1 in Kona. If you like poke, there are a few varieties. Other than that, menu items are either chicken or pork with rice or quinoa. Drink choices include a few bottled soft drinks from the fridge. The place was clean. There are two wooden tables with benches outside. Try to eat... More

As a local of the area we are very judgmental of "Local" places. I have to admit I drive by this poke shack every day coming home from work. It was not until this past week that I made a visit. Our visitors wanted to taste the best poke on the the island. It is right down the the street.... More

Our first Poke meal... and now we're addicted. I dream about it now. I google image pictures of Poke before I go to bed. This was amazing! We were a little intimidated to take our first bite, but honestly I like it way better than cooked fish now. If only you could find Poke in New England.

Their Huli chicken was so tender and juicy! I was impressed. A great idea for a stay in dinner. Comes with cole slaw and rice. Two of us ate one take out order and had left overs! Wish I could order some at home! Loved it!

Our last meal in Kona we decided to get some take out at Da Poke Shack...and true to the yelp reviews, it did not disappoint. Just munched up some Huli Chicken as I type. yummy. As it was late in the day we were only able to sample the Sesame poke and Pele kiss Poke and both were very good.... More

Amazing, fresh, great value, friendly service, big range. You can we loved it from the title alone. The chicken wasn't the best but the laulau and the Kailua pork were awesome. We tried four different ahí pokes and they were all amazing.

This was our third visit to the island, and our first stop for food. It doesn't get any fresher than this. Highly recommend anyone that likes raw tuna to check them out.
