“Two words: Mochiko Chicken...oh and you can add a thank you Chef too...”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

was in the area and been awhile since I had any grinds from C J's...so stopped on by...was going to go for the fish taco special, but noticed that they had Mochiko Chicken on the menu...saw C J the Chef/Owner behind the counter, yes folks he actually works the line too, and queried him about how the Mochiko Chicken was prepared...well after his 4 minute explanation how could I not order that? He personally brought it out to where I was sitting...it was just So Ono! Better than my taste buds were prepared for...perfectly seasoned, cooked, presentation...came with plenty of chicken, read left overs, 2 scoops rice (you can get it w/mash too) and FRESH Veggies that were not out of a steam table they were cooked just for my plate...for the 10 bucks (included something in the tip jar) it was so more than worth it...
as many others have noted here this place is busy...I've had brekkie here before and it was also broke da mouth...

“Great way to plan”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

My family ate there twice. The first time was a eat-in experience and the food was in very generous portions. The second time we went in to pick up a cooler and their road-to-Hana boxed lunch. It was fantastic. Good sandwiches and plenty of food. Great value and easily picked up to go on the road. I highly recommend it for your excursions!

“Picnic for trip to Hana”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

We got the $12 (each) picnic meal for the three of us from CJ's and every thing about it was great. It was a full meal--included everything, and I mean everything you might need. It was so much easier than trying to find a good place along the way, as we've always done in the past. By the way- The chicken salad was delicious.

“The Comfort Zone”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Good food for very reasonable prices. Large selection, good service, plenty of tables. A reliable place for lunch without the "sticker shock" of other lunch places.

“Don't miss this”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

It is kind of hidden in plain site and we only stumbled across it by accident as we were walking up there and it was recommended. But the food is great and cheap and well worth a visit to.
