Walking down Clark one night because I was staying nearby, just getting a lay of the land, seeing what was around... When I spotted the word "Aloha" and realized it was a Hawaiian spot. I couldn't believe my luck. I love a good Hawaiian plate lunch and even more so when I saw the photo of musubi in the window... More

Bottom Line: If you have a craving for some Hawaiian food, this place won't be memorable, but it will do. Ambiance: Nice, clean. Well-lit. Hawaiian vacation posters and framed newspaper articles. Very local feeling. Food: If you've spent any time in Hawaii eating "local food," you will find it here. Kalua Pork, Saimin, Loco Moco, Katsu, etc. We opted for... More

My husband and I recently ate here. We ordered the Chicken Katsu and the Hawaiian BBQ Chicken plates. The servings were HUGE which is great; looking back we could have split one. The prices were very reasonable at around $10 each including rice and macaroni salad. We also got a side of their curry sauce which was delicious. Both dishes... More

I got the Hawaiian BBQ mix plate. The food looked very well prepared! I was very pleased with the noodles, chicken, and Beef. However the short-rib that came with this plate was entirely fat, just about every bit of it, so I wasn't pleased with that. Especially when I paid nearly $15 for the entire thing. When I pay that...

We try to travel to Hawaii as often as we can. Looking for an alternative to deep dish pizza while spending a week in Chicago, we were very happy to find Aloha Eats. The pork & salmon plate lunches, including the sticky rice & mac salad, were ono (delicious.) Will definitely come back for more on our next visit to... More

We found this restaurant while we lived in Chicago. It's been 4.5 years since we moved out of the city but we still find ourselves coming here when we visit. The food is really good, affordable and different. If you're going because you want some nice, sit down restaurant that will feel like Hawaii, you're in the wrong place. The... More

My children and I visited Aloha Eats in preparation of our upcoming vacation. The food was pretty good. My son ordered the loco moco, it was super tasty. My daughter ordered the pork, it was good. I ordered teriyaki chicken, which was tasty. The cashier was so sweet. She gave us tips for our vacation, places to eat and things... More

Months ago I met a guy from Hawaii and asked him about SPAM and his favorite way to eat it. Having never tried it myself I figured a native Hawaiin would be the one to ask, right? He recommended a SPAM Musubi and noted that I could get one at this place in Chicago. I ordered up the traditional SPAM... More

We had such a taste for Hawaiian food since we came back from Hawaii and luckily found this restaurant. It is just a small storefront with a few tables but the food is genuine Hawaiian. There are many choices and they are generous. There is no wait staff so you order at the counter and wait to be called when... More

As a local I adore this place but if you're visiting Chicago this might not be the place for you. I love the loco moco and the chicken katsu but especially appreciate they play our local alternative radio station. If you're looking for a place to showcase Chicago's culture this isn't going to be it. Be prepared for lots of... More
