Reviewed July 2, 2014

Amazing food at a place you have to look for. Hard to find place and doesnt look like much but you will be treated like ohana and the food is so good.

“Best meal on the Big Island”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

So glad I did my research and knew to look for Super J's, cause I would have missed it. If I could have some of Super J's pork lau lau right now I'd be a very happy girl. It's nothing fancy but it's authentic and fabulous and made with LOVE. Get the pork lau lau, then get more to go- great for breakfast the next day!

“Best Lau Lau on the Big Island”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

We found out about this place on our last day on the Big Island. Another place we stopped at to grab a quick bite told us about the most original Polynesian food on the island, and it was only 15 minutes away from where we were. We drove around for a while and finally went back to Super J's.
It is not what most people would expect. but let me tell ya...It's AWESOME. It was featured on Best thing I ever Ate on the Food Network. Check out their You Tube Video if ya get a chance. The Lau Lau was very tasty and the Pig & Cabbage as they call it was Great too. It might be a good thing that we didn't discover this earlier in the week because we might have eaten here every meal....its just that GOOD !!!! These ladies invited us into their home,yes their Home and treated us like family which made the experience much more enjoyable.
If you are ever on the Big Island and on the Kona side, Give Super J's a try. They are located in Captain Cook area.
You wont be sorry !!!

“If You Don't Know Polynesian Food....”
Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

Go here!! Ask the proprietress to make a plate for you. Great food and I learned about the food and her lifestyle. You are sitting in her house & fresh food was being delivered as I ate. A wonderful experience!

“Try a local legends food”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

We stopped in here for some very authentic Hawaiian food, LauLau, and it was a real experience. The food is simple yet different than anything we had ever had in Hawaii.
This is a must do if you want to try what is a friendly experience that includes great local food!
