You gotta try the tacos, upgrade for a little more and get a 3rd taco. My favorite tacos on this planet.

The food here is onos! If you love kalua pork, definitely grab one of Kono's dishes with it. The shakes here are also great. The oreo one is a must have! The food is fresh tasting and doesn't leave you feeling heavy.
