This is one of those places that people drive right by and don't realize how much they are missing. They were fairly busy with local workers getting lunch but the food was prepared quickly and service was fast. The food was delicious, portions were huge and the price was fantastic for Hawaii. Highly recommend for authentic, local, quality food at a great price.

We went to Keneke’s Grill on Oahu on a tour on our recent cruise to Hawaii. This turned out to be one of the best lunch experiences we've ever had on a tour. It is on a farm, in a beautiful setting between the stunning mountains on one side and the ocean shore on the other. Easy to find, its right along the Kamehameha highway on the east side of the island. The food was excellent and in generous portions. The meals available to our tour included soft drinks and macadamia nut ice cream along with our entrees. The posted prices for their other selections seemed quite reasonable. They have indoor seating, but our large group was seated outdoors, which was very nice. The weather was perfect, with a little breeze. A cute little weaner pig, a rooster, and a pair of ducks visited as we were eating, but were not a bother. There is a garden and goats also on the property. They have well-cared for and clean restrooms. We appreciated the scripture verses that adorned the inner walls of the building. The staff were friendly and efficient. We had a good time there and would recommend it to others.

This was a great local place to stop and get some food. Between the 8 of us, we tried the chicken, Kailua pig, garlic shrimp, pork, steak and grilled cheese. No complaints about any of it. Definitely give this place a try if you are looking for some local food.

Stopped by and had a basic lunch of burgers and fries. The burgers were alright, coulda been better. The fries were pretty tasty. We also had the kalau pork which was good. They definitely had a fly problem. The price was fair and the staff was friendly.

Finally I ordered the right thing somewhere. This is probably the best teri beef I've had on the island (maybe anywhere) in the decade or so I've been in Hawaii. Just downright savory, flavorful "can't wait for another bite" delicious. I got a mini plate (as is my custom) and there was certainly enough in it for two meals. But I wasn't able to put it down long enough to save some to bring home - it was that good. Next time I stop here, I don't know if I should get this again or try something that may be just as good or even better. Look at me thinking about the next time I'm here after just leaving. Yeah I'm finally glad I stopped at this place after years of just passing it by. You know in a way, the building and restaurant itself looks kind of run down and past its best day. The seating area in the back room is certainly atypical with biblical passages written all over the walls - actually a bit eerie. The bible doesn't really mix well with a scoop of rice and the mac salad for me

We stopped in here, not expecting much. (The “decor” was “eclectic” and no air conditioning on a 93 degree day). We were very pleasantly surprised. Everything was freshly prepared and we all took enough home enough for another meal. In addition to the Ono food, they serve home made ice cream and excellent shave ice! A real great find. Lots of locals & regulars who know not to judge a book by it’s cover.

My husband and I pulled in here on the way to our rented cottage for a quick supper, and were very well pleased with the food and the service. Portions are large, the price is very reasonable, and the food is delicious! We came back on our way to the airport to have breakfast, it was also very good!

Wow wow wow ... what a treat for a place that you’d prob just drive past and think nope looks shabby and old I’m glad we stopped ... not the best ambiance but such lovely people and bargain dinner ... $8.99 for teriyaki chicken. Pasta salad and rice and unlimited soda refills shame we threw half it out as way tooo much I’d suggest the 2 meats for $12 and share it with someone going back tomoz for the burgers

We have lived in the area for 3 years, have driven past Keneke's many times, and have never really seen many people there so we figured we should skip it. Our mistake! We stopped their last month out of curiosity and it was delicious! We shared a large mix plate with Kalua pork and Mochiko chicken. Loved the chicken! Definitely will be coming here again in the future.

This is my favorite hole-in-the-wall place to eat on the island. The food is good but it’s the location that puts Keneke’s up to a 5 for me. If you sit outside you’ll have chickens at your feet and hear goats bleating while a green mountain towers in your view. Lilies, papaya trees, and jewel-toned tropical flowers grow everywhere while gold dust geckos show off their red spots. Inside the restaurant bible scriptures cover the walls in sharpie ink. If you’re looking for a “hidden gem” and not-your-usual tourist trap this is a great choice! My favorite is the white fish, my hubby (who grew up on the island) like the mochiko chicken. Portion sizes are good-sized.

One afternoon our family decided to go out to lunch for some burgers.We went to Keneke's and then decided to try other items on the large lunch specials board. We are glad we did! Coconut Shrimp,Garlic Shrimp,Pork Adobo,Teri burger, & the Double Burger Special. Every item tasted great and the service was full of Aloha! My husband raved about the tenderness and flavor of the Pork Adobo especially! We will be taking friends here next time they are hungry for a tasty plate lunch. Our family liked reading the Bible scriptures written on the walls too!
