“Absolutely Horrible”
Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

All I can say is I can't believe this place stays in business. I brought the home the Teriyaki Salmon, Wings and a pastry all were terrible. I truly could not believe how horrible. I should have listened to tge people at the pool.

Thank S S

“The Big Kahuna”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

That's the plate we shared for lunch. With this plate you get pulled pork, terryaki beef and grilled chicken. Then you your choice of 2 sides. There are a variety of sides to choose from including veggies and brown rice. We went with the white rice and french fries. All this for about 11$. Not bad..But honestly the terriyaki beef was the only thing memorable. The pulled pork was unflavored but there was a squeeze bottle of bbq sauce at the table.

This is a stand in line and order type place. Get your own drink at the machine and then seat yourself. We sat at a comfy booth. So if terriyaki beef is your thing then go for it. But next time we find ourselves in the mood to split a 11$ asian meal in Rancho land we will hit up Asian Sky in the same plaza.

“Try the lemon bars!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

The food is good, but not much atmosphere. Help is very friendly. Best thing there are the generously sized lemon bars which are big enough for 2 or 3.

“Great meal”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

A place with a name like Mama's Hawaiian BBQ in the middle of the dessert?? We had our doubts. But there are very few places to eat in the Sahuarita/Green Valley, AZ area, so we decided to go in & take a look at a menu.
Nothing fancy. You go up to the counter, order your food, then go sit & wait til its ready. Three bottles of sauce on the tables--one BBQ sauce, one soy sauce, one teriyaki sauce. Interesting combo. ???

We ordered a combo plate to share (two meats & two sides) and two sodas.
The food was very very good. We had the BBQ pork--very tender and very tasty. We also had the Teriyaki Chicken--YUM!!
Our sides were rice and side salad. Rice was great with some teriyaki sauce along with the meat. Salad was nothing special.
One combo meal was plenty for both of us (we even told a little bit home at the end of our meal).

They serve Pepsi products--our favorite.

This place was a definite gem! We plan to try the other location in Tucson, when we get back home!
