My girlfriend and I ate here after snorkeling one day and it is awesome! My girlfriend had the pulled pork sandwiche and I had the full rack of ribs. Great food and great staff. We will go back again next year for sure!!!!

Some of the best BBQ we've ever had. We got pulled pork, ribs, and chicken with their version of baked beans, green beans, and macaroni and cheese for sides. The service is great and the food is even better! Got right in, enjoyed the food, got right out!

Coming from Texas to Hawaii, BBQ was not on my radar, but Honey had his tastebuds set. The brisket was really good and I wished I had ordered it for myself. I love pork ribs , but didn't love these- something was off. Even so, everything else was delicious. The manager/owner was there and told us their cooker came directly... More

The servers couldn't be any nicer if they tried. Not a place for fancy dinners but definitely good for families and kids. BBQ is good and ready quickly when you are starving after a long day at the beach.

The food was very good here, especially the pulled pork and coleslaw. The service was friendly, and I would recommend this restaurant to travelers in the area.

I LOVE BBQ! To have a place to get BBQ on the Island and even have it right next door (1 minute walk from where I was staying), I couldn't wait. I read the reviews and it seemed well enough. Boy,...was I disappointed. It was basic, the pork was fatty, the ribs were soft and kinda fatty, and the sides... More

I read all the reviews prior to heading to Maui, my step son and husband love southern bbq and so I made sure that was one of our first stops! Man I fell in love with the brisket sandwich and the hot sauce...if you like hot sauce it has an amazing flavor!!

Wow! Very impressive! Best BBQ I've had in a long time. Cornbread is for real. Just like my sister makes! This is the kind of BBQ you have after Sunday church or from that Uncle from Texas that knows how to BBQ! We had chicken and ribs, Mac and Cheese. Ribs were out of this world, the chicken was good...

The staff was friendly and the food was delicious! The chicken was moist and flavorful and the pork was perfect! Each plate had a ton of food and the side dishes tasted homemade! Mac and Cheese was yummy! There is a kids playroom lined with chalkboard walls! We were told the food was cheap, but nothing is cheap in Hawaii.... More
