This eatery was recommended to us by the employee at Snorkel Bob's in Poipu. My husband, my 3 teen boys and myself ate there for dinner prior to going to Smith's Luau (show only). The boys got the beef plates, 1 got the pork plate and I chose the chicken plate. All of us agreed that it was really good... More

After reading some reviews -we came here twice...We ordered the chicken. The Cole slaw was fresh and bbq selection worked. It hit the spot for us. We took it to go and ate like kind in our condo. It is near the bike path but you may need a nap after :)

Stopped here for lunch after a morning hike so we were pretty hungry. Decided to split the sampler entree.. SO TASTY! Sat and ate it in one of the covered picnic tables along the coast. Hit the spot!

My wife and I split a sample platter (pulled pork, pulled chicken, brisket, and a rib). They know how to make bbq, excellent smoke flavor and the sauces were perfect - the spicy one had not that much heat.

Great casual, outdoor shack lunch. Tasty burritos and tacos. Cool staff and they even checked on us if we needed anything. Stop by and grind

Variety of BBQ meats and sides such as Mac and cheese, fries, etc. Very decent sized portions. Food well prepared and service also very good. Worth checking out for quick meal. There are number of these places on island.
