We were driving around looking for "crowds" and saw the stream of locals coming and going. Service is fast, lots of food. Loved the beef stew - huge local carrots and chunks of potatoes and soft tender beef. My friend had a BLT. This is home town cooking with friendly fast service. Not sure what to order? ask a friendly... More

This is fast food in speed and taste. I recommend trying the breaded food over any grilled option. We all went with their special on grilled fish. It came with rice and macaroni salad. The salad was the best part. The fish was a thin patty like you buy in frozen foods for a fast burger. You are given 3... More

This place is just awesome. I liked it so much, I had it 2 days in a row. Had the super loco, it was really good and tons of food. Love the rice with all the meat and eggs. The kid had the burger with fries. Food was great and so are the prices. Will go back every time I'm... More

We stopped here after reading reviews of it. You order at the window and then you can eat outside at one of the covered tables. Service was fast, food was fair and the quantities were huge. Try a loco combination!

We had the loco mocos. Portuguese sausage in one and smoky sausage in the other. The gravy was tasty over the sticky rice and the egg cooked perfectly. I also had a small ilikoi drink. Yum. Not too sweet. I want to come back for the miso ahi another time.

Come here for standard local fare. My wife and I had breakfast here. Eggs with Portuguese sausage for me, breakfast sandwich with ham for my wife. Definitely a place for locals. Nothing fancy but good value. You order at the window and after a short wait get your tray. plenty of shaded benches and tables for a relaxed, low key... More

The food was good. I had the teriyaki and fried chicken plate and my husband had the super loco moco. We both enjoyed our food. Service was quick and the price was very inexpensive for the amount of food that we got.

Great island local food at a friendly family price! You will not be disappointed and portions big enough to share. Our first trip to the Hawaiian islands we have followed recommendations and this one is a gem!

I've eaten here many times and no matter what I get, it's always delicious. There's usually a line but the food is cooked to order and it's worth it. I ordered the chicken hekka special on a whim and it was so yum. Lots of veggies. Local food can be really unhealthy but I like that they offer options. Try... More

You don't come here for the ambiance or amenities. You order your food and take it home, or eat on the open air patio. All the customers are locals, which is always a good sign. They are not catering to health nuts here. They are feeding the hardy Hawaiian natives, and I like to eat like a hardy Hawaiian native.... More
