Best local food you're going to find around the Kona Coast. They are experts at Lau Lau, and their Kalua Pig is off the charts. It's not a fancy place, but they'll treat you like family -- I mean a real family, kidding and all....You want to see what living here is like? Come to Super J's!More

This is easily our favorite food stop on the big island. Great authentic Hawaiian food and the people are the best! Lau lau that will keep you coming back for more. This is a must stop for great food and local experience.

I wish I could rate this place a 6. Authentic, friendly, cheap. We stayed on the big island for a month and Super J's was the best meal we ate the entire trip.

Super J's was so delicious we went back three times during our trip. We almost tried their entire menu and can say it was better than almost every restaurant and Luau we went to. The friendly staff made the experience even better. No matter where...you are staying, it's worth the drive. Try the Sweet Potato Haipia Pie!More

After a two week trip to Hawaii, we can confidently say that this was one of our favorite meals (the other was Kyung's in Honolulu). Amazing food (including the desserts), great value, and very friendly service! Highly highly recommend.

We ordered the pork laulau plate, and it was easily the tastiest food we had on the island! The staff was super friendly and gave us instructions on the best way to eat the meal. It is about a 30 minute drive from Kailua-Kona but...the drive is beautiful and the pork laulau is absolutely worth it.More

Go early to get some. It is mild and lightly sweetened. This is not a strong, uber sweet, dessert. This is so good!

Loved this place! We stopped by for lunch and they offered a great selection of traditional Hawaiian food. Both the chicken and pork lau lau were excellent! We also had the sweet potato pie, it was delicious! The ladies working were super friendly and funny....They offered great suggestions for local places to go and things to see. Definitely recommend and would love to go back again!More

I have been going here the past year after moving to the Big Island and there is nothing I crave more than this authentic Hawaiian food! The aunties work all the time and super hard to make sure the food is delicious. Pork lau lau...is the best and so rich in flavor. I have tried most food places here on island but nothing beats Super J's. Mahalos!!!More

Staff was very nice & welcoming. My husband got one of everything and he cleaned his plate, said it was the best he had on the island.

Just go here!!!!! You've got to try it. Best food ever!!! Nothing like their laulau on the other islands. I can't wait to go back and have more.
