Kojis has been around Hilo forever. The Koji burger with a side mac salad is a must try. Their chili is great as well as their plate lunches. If you are hungry and want some classic local food, this is the place. Also, very reasonable!

You get a lot for the price :) Their Koji Loco and Koji Burger are the best. I also like their hamburger curry on cold days. Be prepared for a kanak attack!
