The meals are great and average to low price and worth it! I ate the mix plate, beef stew and hamburger steak with mushroom gravy. Best deal in town!

We had breakfast 2x and lunch during our stay in Kona and our party of 5 enjoyed every meal. The French toast with Haupia butter or passion sauce was moist and tasty. For lunch, the 1/2 lb hamburger is a bargain at $5.50 and there was a nice variety of lunch plates to choose from. Lots of locals is a... More

A must stop off the plane, on your way back to the airport, and every where in between. The poke is awesome, the fried poke, the burgers big and juicy, and the prices are borderline budget! well worth money

First and last stop our trip. Good food and good value. Close to airport. They have a breakfast and lunch menu. Many locals were eating which is always a good sign. Fast service and clean dining area.

Convenient location just off the highway near Kona - The restaurant has a slew of very tasty dishes! I have eaten there several times and always leave happy. Bring a big appetite, however as portions are large.

Really good food at a reasonable price. Some of the best burgers in town. Take about 5 minutes to read the menu on the wall, step up and order what you want like at the Soup Nazi on Seinfeld . Step to the back and wait to here your name. Portion sizes are good and never a shortage of specials.... More

I stumbled on this spot...and there are virtually no tourists...a great secrete!! This spot is just off of #19 near the Kona airport ...also was close to my hotel. The very best value that I had discovered in Hawaii for good, honest, plain and simple quality food at an awesome price! A large menu with many "plate lunch" style dishes... More
