Wonderful BarBQ with a Hawaiian and oriental touch. The surroundings are campus-oriented. The quality of the food and generous portions speak for themselves. Priced right. This was our second experience and would go there again. Not a destination for those seeking memorable ambiance. Go for the food!

The food is priced like a high dollar establishment, however the tables have a sticky grime, the walls have dried slop on them. The young women was very unhelpful. It took 20 min for the for the food, and get this we asked for two plain burgers and what do they do give me two burger pattys. I feel extremely... More

We tried the newer location in Sahuarita and we were not disappointed. The restaurant was clean and nicely decorated and we enjoyed the soft Hawaiian music in the background. The employees were all very pleasant and friendly. I ordered the macadamia-crusted tilapia which was delicious. My husband ordered the Kalua pork and it was excellent. The portions are generous. Wish... More

This place is a fast food version of a Hawaiian grill. Paper plates and plastic booths. Not much for ambiance. However the food was descent and you get a fair amount of it. The house salad is nice with the pineapple on top. Little on the expensive side for a paper plate sort of place.

I am so excited to have the Marana location. You get large amounts of food that taste great. The customer service is excellent as well. We have a 19 year old GSD that refuses to take her meds... we buy her the Big Kahuna and her meds go down quickly :) it is so much meat it lasts for days.... More

Thank goodness we now have a Hawaiian BBQ here in Tucson. I close my eyes and pretend I am back in Hawaii which doesn't work but at least I know I will be getting an authentic meal. Mama's is located on Speedway Blvd. It offers traditional plate lunches (entree', rice, and mac salad). Entree's include teriyaki chicken and beef, mahi... More

I've never tried Hawaiin BBQ before, but I consider myself a BBQ fanatic. I adore Brush Fire BBQ (brushfirebbq.com) to the extent that I would eat there even if I wasn't hungry at all. So when my bestie suggested trying Mama's Hawaiin BBQ near to the U of A campus, I was more than ready to get my Que on.... More

The food is really great, especially the shredded pork. My husband is a big food snob and he loves them. I also use them for catering at work all the time, they are extremely reasonably priced and have great presentation.

We saw this new restaurant on Speedway and thought we would try since we have enjoyed Hawaiian food. It is a converted fast food place and runs on the same lines. So three dots for atmosphere. However, it is a nice change from the usual burgers. I had the beef teriyaki while my wife had the chicken katsu. There were... More
