One of the first things I do when I come to Kona is visit Da Poke Shack, it's that good and they have quite the variety. Don't be afraid to ask for a taste, they're happy to oblige.

This place came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. On our way from the airport to our house we made a stop here. It was later in the afternoon so they were out of a few things.

Drive along Alii drive on the Kona coast of the Big Island south until you come to Bali Kai Condos and there you will find the Poke. Lau lau too. Many varieties, but when it's gone they close..open around 5.

I love sushi, but I found "poke" kind of "abundant". But, the truth is that recipes in The Poke Shack are delicious. Try the winners ones and the brown rice, it was yummy! ☺🍚

Great Poke, great selection, friendly staff!! Great value!! And yes, it almost literally is a shack in the parking lot of the Kona Bali Kai Hotel/Condo. Can't go wrong.
