The store was severely understaffed when we went with only one person working (but two employees there). We waited an hour to get shave ice, and only stayed because we know it is good, and we were committed. We also kept hoping the other person would jump in and get line to move faster at some point, but that didn't... More

Long lines sometimes indicate good food. In the case of Local Boys West, it is true. The lines were long but they moved pretty quickly. The service was great. Very friendly staff. There were so many flavors it was hard to choose. Good shave ice. You can't go wrong if you visit here.

We've tried ALL da shave ices! Or so we thought. This place had flavors we never even DREAMED of putting onto a shave ice. And they give you a scoop of ice cream FREE on the bottom of your shave ice if you want. And you got a free topping (there are usually a couple listed on a white board,... More

Awesome shave ice and well worth the wait. Do not say snow cone or you could be kicked out of the place....not by the establishment...by the others waiting in line. Shave ice here is an art form.

Excellent shave ice! Local Boys doesn't nickel and dime you...you want a scoop of ice cream added, a few gummy bears, cream on top? No problem. The butterscotch flavor is different and amazing, reminds me of butter beer from Universal. This place rocks!

Amazingly good shaved ice. Worth the wait if there is one. Friendly staff and a coupon on your receipt for a repeat visit. It was so good I had two in one day.

I don't have much to compare to since Shave Ice isn't popular in Ohio, but I've had my share of frozen treats, and this was amazing! The icecream on the bottom with the shave ice is the perfect combination! The server was so friendly too! Don't miss this!

Our family stumbled upon this spot early in our trip. We ended up coming back daily for the rest of our vacation. If you bring your receipt from your previous purchase, you get a dollar off your next order. We loved the Tiger's Blood shave ice with haupia ice cream on the bottom and cream on top. It was awesome!... More

Even the small is a good size. Added ice cream on bottom and topped with cream, this was delicious. We came upon this towards the end of front street across from the school, and were pleasantly surprised. It was not full so we were able to take out time deciding what to get, they have several flavor suggestions posted near... More

A must for visitors and locals alike! Our shave ice is made old style with soft fluffy shaved ice saturated with a wide variety of delicious flavors. We offer ice cream on the bottom, mochi, azuki beans and cream over the top all at no extra charge. You won't find shave ice as good as ours anywhere else on the island. This is the real deal, you'll keep coming back for more! We also sell Roselani ice cream and many other local favorites. Try our location in Kihei too.
