“Yummy chicken!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

When we stepped in to this place we weren't really sure if it would be good or not, but I am glad we stopped. The barbeque chicken was delicious. My husband had the pulled pork and it was great as well. By looking at the place it doesn't look like much but their food is delish!

“Horrible food and horrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

This is probably the worst place to eat on the Island, the service is horrible, the food is horrible they give you lots of bad tasting food. We had the ribs and chicken, both dry cold, and they give you dry rice as a side.

“BBQ done right!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Had a luscious mixed plate for lunch here, and it hit all my buttons; delicious lean meats, awesome mild & hot bbq sauces, and the beans we're the best. Great service, and good value. Great chicken watching place too ;-)

“Bad service ”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

My husband ordered a cheese quesadilla for my kids to have for lunch - he asked the woman how big it was in order to determine if we needed one or two for them. She wouldn't give an answer! Just a vague I-don't-know response. When it was ready somehow he did not hear them call his name so he stood waiting and waiting while the box sat on the counter and the woman continued her business without telling him it was his a second time, though he stood there waiting. Finally he asked the woman how long it would be until our food was ready and only then did she acknowledge the box was his.


Terrible customer service with a rude, bad attitude.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

We had the sampler plate which gives you chicken, pork and beef and they're all excellent in their own way. Then we had their macnut and coffee ice cream, so yummy. Inside seeting and bigger place compared to the one in Kapaa
