Funny thing is we saw a restaurant off the highway while heading north. Missed the turn off and so had to pull off in the next parking lot. Then we saw Ono steaks and shrimp shack and we thought we would try it out. Mostly, it had "shrimp shack" in its title... Garlic shrimp was amazing. Girlfriend had the fish... More

Really loved the food here. I tried the steak plate and garlic fries. The steak plate came with rice and I choose the salad on the side. It was quite good. I really loved the garlic fries - packed with garlic - great flavor. Would certainly stop here again.

I was driving in the area and found this place on trip advisor. It was very good. I ordered the steak plate. Which was real good. And then I ordered these things, which I can't remember the name of but were called Portuguese donuts. They were amazing. Highly recommended.

Food was very good. The food portions were plenty even for a mini size. We especially enjoyed the Loco Moco breakfast.

Approaching noon while on our drive around the island we spotted the bright yellow shack and pulled in. Lots of parking. Having had a large breakfast we ordered one kalbi and shrimp plate to share among 3 of us. It was cooked to order and it was ono! Portion size was good: way too much food for 1, filling for... More

We were hungry and saw Ono as out only option. We both ordered the fish tacos and the garlic fries. The garlic fries were inedible way too much raw garlic. I liked the mango salsa on top of the tacos but the fish didn't taste right. Overall didn't like it, won't be back.

Loved the fish tacos and the Ono with the mango salsa---already thinking of how to replicate it at home. Came here for lunch and decided to take out another Ono plate to split with my hubby for dinner---portions are huge! Coming back here tomorrow to try out their garlic shrimp and see how they compare with the shrimp trucks in... More

The portions were quite large- you could actually order one entree to split with two people! There were two couples on this visit and we ordered the steak & shrimp, Ono with mango salsa, and 4 fish tacos. All were generous sizes and we took plenty with us left over! The shrimp would've been better if they'd peel it first... More
