This was a fun and delicious night out! I went with three friends and we ordered 5 pupus/appetizers to share. We never even looked at the main menu! All the pupus were unique to Bo's and not like anything I've ever had anywhere else. The Nachos were the table favorite. The use a generous amount of pulled pork with a... More

Got a tip that this is a favourite of locals so decided to check it out. What a great experience. From the street you may be inclined to walk right past. Don't do that or you will miss a fantastic treat. While they take reservations we took a chance and in under 5 minutes were seated in the back dining... More

Trip Advisor readers have this rated very high as a great place to eat in Honolulu and I can see why. While the outside appears to be just another storefront, it's what's inside that counts! Whether you choose from the dozens of Pupus or one of their unique meal, you and your friends will enjoy a delicious feast for all... More

I walked over here from my hotel in Waikiki. The menu was full of great choices so I did a couple appetizers and a beet salad. The six little pigs was fantastic and the beet salad was yummy too. Also had the oysters Rockefeller it was beautifully presented could've been a little hotter but was delicious. I definitely will be... More

Found this gem our first year 2013. Have been back every year since sometimes 2x. Highly recommend the seafood trap with its delicious garlic oyster sauce or my first go to the SOS deliciously creamy sauce with a little heat. Have also had numerous pupus pizzas that have not disappointed.

Decided to take a break from the tourists on Waikiki and found this wonderful restaurant. Well worth getting away from the hotels and corporate restaurants on the strip to enjoy something that is authentic, fun, and amazing food! Staff were friendly, bartender was wonderful, prices are reasonable.

It's 2017. Reservation system is only via telephone or email. We tried to book a reservation for a Saturday night for 9 people and despite calling twice (no answer) and sending an email 5 days before the date, when we finally got through via telephone two days before date, the restaurant was full. It's 2017. OpenTable. Online reservations custom made.... More

Uncle Bo's Pupu Bar and Grill has an unassuming exterior and a hip/trendy interior with GREAT food and cocktails. With no reservations, we waited about thirty-five minutes for a table for four - worth the wait. A local recommended it to us, and it was our favorite meal in Honolulu.
