Had an amazing time, found on tripadvisor. Only a fifteen minute walk from Waikiki. Be sure to make a reservation, we were lucky to get in. Make sure to order the dynamite shrimp for the appetizer!! Everything was delicious, but they serve HUGE portions, so keep that in mind. All in all, this is a must-stop for any trip to... More

I found this place based on reviews on TripAdvisor. I arrived at 4pm with my kids and walked in to be escorted out. Apparently they don't open till 5. I still wanted to try this place so I stayed in the vecinity as we caught the bus here. My kids ate at Jack in the box to kill time. We... More

We had just finished our hike of Diamond Head and was looking for something to eat close by. Trip Advisor showed Uncle Bo's was 5 minutes away and it had great reviews. We parked across the street for $2 (in Hawaii?). The outside of the building is deceptive, as inside, it is a modern, hip space. We did not have... More

Don't go to the tourist places in the beach for anything more than an overpriced sunset cocktail. If you want a great dinner for a great price head away from the beach to Bo's. We had three drinks and two pupus, all of it delicious, and the total was $45 before tip. Don't attempt this trick at the beach kids.... More

Uncle Bo's is out of Waikiki but not hard to find. Parking is across the road but make sure you do purchase a parking ticket as we did see a man checking each car's dash with a torch in one hand and a clip board in the other! We arrived to a friendly welcome to find Uncle Bo's dominated by... More

If you want to eat where the locals eat try Uncle Bo's. The portions are large and the food very reasonably priced. We ate at Uncle Bo's twice and both times it was packed. I suggest making a reservation.

Despite the unassuming appearance of the building from the outside, the food and service were both excellent at Uncle Bo's. We'll definitely be back. You HAVE to try the dynamite shrimp! Fantastic! Although every dish that we tried was delicious.
