This is a hole in the wall restaurant and not something you will find on the strip. It was perfect though! No line, no traffic, no wait! The food was delicious and they had great customer service, even gave us some brownie bites to sample while we waited. This is a must if looking for an inexpensive but flavorful meal!

We grabbed a quick dinner here the first night we were in town. We sat at the bar which overlooked the main street in town. We just had burgers and fries but the food was very good and the drinks we had for dinner were great too! I would recommend this place for anyone looking to grab a quick meal... More

The food was good but the noise from patrons and the entertainment was too loud. Would be better at lunch time with less people. Still good food at a reasonable price

We had many Maitis while here! They have the best, by far! The garlic fries are also good. The service was great:)

Seems pretty poor and the wait staff are more interested in leaning... More

Most of the reviews on this site are very generous and polite.after being a customer at Big Kahuna's three times, all three being sad and my last being the worst of all three, take some advice, spend your money elsewhere. If you need or want to look at girls, go to the beach. the girls at the BIG Kahuna are... More
