“It will be one of the highlights of your trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

Only the best at Metal Mike's...if you are in K-K...you gotta check his pretzels out. They rock! We first discovered MM 3 years ago and have been waiting for this visit to make it back. Personally, I love the sweet varieties...have not seen anything else like them. Give it a try and you won't be disappointed.

“Good Pretzels and Friendly Owner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

It took us a while to fnd this place, which is right around the corner from the Scandinavian Shaved Ice place, but it was worth the search. The pretzels are huge and have a really good flavor. Mike is really fun to talk with and he will become your friend in a couple of minutes. Good place for a snack to go along with shaved ice.

“Awesome pretzel dog”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

We spotted Mike's looking for parking and figured we'd grab a quick lunch. Mike is located near Hulile'e Palace on an alley off Allii drive. Mike was a cool dude, very nice and makes a great pretzel, the pretzel dog was one of the best values we had for a meal while in Kona.

“Best Pretzel from a Shack in an Alley Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

While searching for a place to park, to get a shaved ice, we passed Metal Mike, sitting in a small shack in the alley. Mike was offering 3 plain pretzels for $10, but because he only had 1 plain left, we were able to get a garlic twist and four cheese as well. The pretzels were excellent, along with the special sauces...I particularly liked the wasabi mustard. Will go back again!

“Great pretzel. Interesting character.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

I was intrigued by the sign out on the main drag, and it was a little bit of work to actually find Metal Mike's.

Speaking with Mike, I got the impression that he may have burned out many of his brain cells in his day, leaving him only with the ability to focus on pretzels.

While I waited for my pepperoni and mozzarella pretzel (which was delicious) he told me all about pretzels and the recipes that they can be used in.

I actually came back for a second pretzel half an hour later. The man knows how to make a good pretzel.
