Stopped for Lunch. Table cloth was old and stained with ground in dirt. The decor was over done with tons of fake flowers, some of which looked like they had not been cleaned in a long time. I had a ham and cheese sandwich that was quite tasty, tropical juice drink that was lacking in flavor. Hubby had a bacon cheeseburger that was difficult to eat; bun was soggy and fell apart, bacon was inedible shoeleather. He had to use a fork to eat the burger but could only choke down half of it... The french fries were cooked nicely but were totally tastless. The waitress was a sourpuss; I had to ask her twice 'where was the restroom', a sign on the door says employees only. The smell of old urine in the restroom was nasty, it was dirty and cluttered with storage and had no soap for washing the hands, also it was boy/girl same room. A California health department would shut this one down for deep cleaning.

the service was terrible, but the food was really good. the lady was nasty when she served and as soon as you got your food, she dispersed till you said you have to pay then she shows up. the food is well priced.

We read about this place in the blue book and decided to try for lunch on our way from Puna to Kona. The odor of urine was so overpowering as we walked in te door that I could not bear to order food. Not sure if it was really urine or not, but my nose would not allow me to consider other options so we left. Too bad but there was only one otter person in the restaurant when we were there and he looked like a local.

The chili burger was huge and smothered in a canned variety of chili and melted cheese. The burger itself was quite tasty. The Korean Chicken Burger served must have been a regular chicken burger patty (mostly dark meat) and was about 3 ounces - didn't note any Korean flavoring. Fresh buns and fresh condiments. The daily specials were quite varied and large portions. I think that may have been a better choice than a Korean chicken burger, and would recommend trying next time.
