Stopped here for lunch and oh so glad we did. Hawaiian Bowl with kalua pork, cabbage, and rice was perfect. The guava BBQ sauce is incredible, not too sweet and just the right amount of tangy. Husband had Pork Nachos and they were delish. I'm...assuming my 10 year old sliders were great because she ate them so fast I didn't see them go. This place is small, with tables on top of each other. It is a bit of a drive and it's perfect. Good shakes too!More

While exploring the North Shore on Oahu, one of the best places to visit for food and shopping is Kailua. Kono’s has a large menu despite its small size - breakfast bombers (wraps), sannies, biscuits and gravy, nachos, sliders, plate lunches, smoothies and lemonade. We...had the kalua pork nachos (so yummy) as well as the avocado veggie wrap - full of flavour! My lava smoothie (strawberry lime and papaya) hit the spot after a tough hike to Makapu’u Lighthouse Point. A great stop to get fueled up for beach activities on the North Shore.More

So good!! Great lunch spot! Went here with the family on a trip from Waikiki to Kailua town. Great sandwiches (Old School) and awesome milkshakes. On a nice little strip of other shops.

Promised a lot and it was good, but not great. Still happy, but a little put off by not having tables wiped down (we had to do it ourselves). Pork was the best part of it.

I absolutely love this place. Discovered it by accident on Hekili Street. Our Kalua Pork plate was so good, slow roasted for 12 hours. Tristen was so helpful and sweet; we videoed her zip lining the order to the cook. Thank you Tristen for naturally...having the aloha spirit. 🏝More

I was craving the juicy treat that is kalua pork, luckily Kono’s came up in a google search. The menu is extensive, and everything comes with heaps of delicious kalua pork! We ordered the Old School sandwich, sliders and tacos. Everything was delicious, service was...fast and friendly and it was only $35 for a filling lunch for 3 people. Can’t recommend this place enough!More

It locates just a few minutes drive from Kailua Beach. We didn’t go wrong with Old School sandwich (pulled pork) and Chun’s. I preferred Old School one. They also have another restaurant in Waikiki. Very reason price for big sandwiches.
