Just walking along sidewalk in The Dalles and saw Lilos BBQ restaurant was open, so stepped in. I ordered coconut green curry with chicken. Super tasty as light flavors of coconut and curry combined with chicken and fresh broccoli over a bed of perfectly steamed...rice. Meal arrived promptly served by a polite young fellow. Nice break after a day of hard driving!More

One of the best hamburgers I have had! The bun was toasted perfectly, the large burger patty was cooked perfectly. I liked the sauce choices, the tomato was fresh and juicy and tasty (not like a December tomato! How’d they do that?) And I tried...the mixed juice during POG I think it was, very nice. Staff followed Covid protocols, were cheery.More

Very flavorful traditional kalua pork plate also teriyaki chicken was awesome with choice of sauces and vegetables and salad instead of traditional sides. Good prices, great atmosphere and service.

Very good food! Was blown away by the flavor of the coconut shrimp. Great rice. This was excellent and reasonable price. I know if we are in The Dallas again we will return.

First time here. Place was clean, bathrooms could've used a little attention but no biggie. Staff was nice. A little slow on a Sat afternoon so there was no wait. Wife got pork sandwich and was very happy with it. Cole slaw was not that...tangy but still good. Macaroni salad was well worth it. Marinated chicken was very good also. Would cone againMore

Both the hui-hui chicken plate and the ahi-ahi were perfectly prepared. As for the side dishes, the rice was perfect, and the macaroni salad very fine. This is traditional Hawaiian plate-lunch food, and expertly done. Wonderful flavors and textures. I would come back if I'm...ever in The Dalles again; the whole thing was so unexpected. This seems to be a family operation--beautiful people doing the hard work of spreading love through food.More

This restaurant doesn't look like much on the outside or inside, but the meal was delicious. Service was fast; the food is barbequed outside in advance and is ready to be placed on your plate. I did find a few dirty utensils; use the plastic...ones and get around this problem.More

I loved the pulled pork sandwich and everything else on their menu but the last time I was there the air conditioning wasn't working and it made for a very warm dinner. I would get my meal to go if it wasn't fixed.

We stumbled upon this place by happenstance and were drawn in by the friendly vibe. We got lunch plates with the Kalua pig and the huli-huli chicken. The food was fantastic! Tasty and tangy and fresh, served with scoops of rice and macaroni salad. Clean,...casual place that I'd love to visit again.More

All of the food I've tried is very good, but the meal called the Big Kahuna is the best! Various meat selections, two sides, rice and a variety of sauces. There's also a variety of craft beers. The restaurant isn't fancy, but is well kept...and clean.More

We stopped in for a late lunch on a saturday - pleasantly surprised by the good food! Kalua pulled pork and chicken with sides on the menu. I had a lunch special of a thai chicken w/broccoli. broccoli was fresh and cooked perfect - on...the crisp side. Very good. Casual - meaning you order at the counter and they bring the food to you. plenty of seating.More

We were just driving through town and stumbled across Lilo's BBQ right off the main street. What a nice restaurant, friendly service, very clean, and fast service. We had a couple plate lunches with pulled BBQ pork, really good! Lot's of parking around the restaurant.

Good food but always the same small menu. So once in awhile is good. Nice Hawaii’s type decor and very friendly service.
