We heard about this place from 2 different locals. And we actually did not come for the doughnuts though that's what they are known for. We had a burger and a steak/shrimp plate. Both were very tasty. We did get their bread pudding as a take-away dessert made with the doughnuts. My husband said it was great. I didn't get a single bite so I will take his word for it.

OMG, I would move to this island just so I could eat these warm malasadas whenever I wanted. Tex's has got to have the best malasadas on the island. The malasadas here are huge an have tons of filling, which your options for filling are: bavarian cream, chocolate, strawberry, guave, apple, and apricot. We Love this place!

Local favorite in Honokaa. Quick stop off highway. Love love love the hot Malasadas. Varied menu, specials on different days. Beautiful view.

Whatever you do, wherever you go, STOP IN HERE and grab some malasadas. Fresh, hot, fruit or cream filled, sugar-coated Portuguese doughnuts. DROOL!!

We went to this locations twice - once for dinner on a late trip back to Kona - we had the fish special (which was pretty good for a fast food place) Also got Soyu Chicken plate. Both dishes were pretty good! The guava smoothie was da bomb!

The second time we went by here, we picked up Malasadas. The Malasadas were served warm. These malasadas will probably be your best bet to get them served warm on the Big Island. These malasadas do not compare to "Leonard's Bakery" on Oahu.
