First time there, I had the garlic chicken with potatoes. You can order it with rice as well. It was amazing and large portions. You have to try Papa Ole's and some of the other dishes.

This is simply the best place to eat in Hauula. Good food, good prices, and the place that all of the locals prefer to eat as well. Also a great place to socialize with the locals.

Between the two of us we had the garlic chicken, a cheeseburger, and a tossed salad. Ordered the "mini" portion of the chicken, and was full afterward. All cost under $20. Food was delicious. Heavy enough that I couldn't do it every day, but very tasty. No frills, just genuine friendly service and good food.

We stopped in for lunch after snorkeling on the north shore, The long line of locals assured us this was a good place to eat, and we were not disappointed! I had the Teri Chicken mini plate: Rice, teriyaki chicken, and macaroni salad. Our best meal on Oahu!

What a great find for breakfast or lunch or take out!! The name threw us off - this is Great local food, not Mexican. Our family had the Kalbi, Hamburger steak with mushroom gravy, veggie omelet and Hawaiian Sweet Bread French toast for breakfast and we all shared. The kalbi is thick cut so it's tender and moist and SOOOO... More

Breakfast and luncheon dishes were delicious and ample...though preparation required diners' patience; worth the wait, great value!

A cash only experience, the ribs (both regular and Teriaki) were amazing. This was one of our favorite eating spots on the North Shore. Be prepared to wait 30-40 minutes for your food and the seating is picnic tables.
