Heard good things, and the smell outside is enticing. Loved our half chicken, great Smokey taste. The hot and mild bbq sauces were good. Enjoyed the side of chili as well.

Try the sampler plate, it is surprisingly good. Also loved the pork plate and the tacos. This is a sit in or outside casual restaurant. Come as you are. Friendly staff.

The food was tasty and plentiful for lunch. Prices were a bit high, even for this area. We were able to enjoy outdoor seating and had an overall good experience.

Decent burgers. It came with 3 onion rings :( I would probably try the BBQ chicken next time, since it appears to be their speciality. The price was on the higher end for fast food. I would try Duane's Ono Char if you want burgers.

This chicken is delicious, moist and flavorful. The accompanying chili was not to my liking. Also came with rice.

We loved the ribs here. You could see the smoke layer in the meat and it was great. The meat just about fell off the bone, which is what good ribs should be. Juicy and finger lick'n good.

I can't remember exactly, but they were open for both lunch and dinner, and they were one of the last restaurants open in Hanalei at night. I'm pretty sure they're open until 8pm, maybe later.
