I was staying in a rental place outside Keaau & decided to get some groceries & hopefully lunch without having to go all the way into Hilo. Just noticed a little strip mall with a small neighborhood bar, figuring the bar must have food I pulled in. Luckily for me the bar was closed & this hidden little hole-in-the-wall restaurant was open. It's very bright & clean, the ladies working there are very friendly & polite. They were very surprised to have a random Canadian tourist come in their door & were very welcoming. I can't remember the name of the burger they recommended but it was fantastic!! Juicy without being "sloppy", packed with lettuce, tomato, onions & sprouts. Those fresh made fries can't be beat. The fresh made fruit smoothy was incredible, all real fruit. I'll be back again on my next holiday

These gals know how to COOK!!! What a great little hidden gem! They have weekly specials that are excellent, they hand make their own gravy (that gains MAJOR points from me - Can't stand that package stuff). Hand cut fries, excellent local beef burgers, this is quickly becoming a favorite lunch spot!

Tiny store front with a handful of indoor tables and two outside. Don't let the small footprint fool you because the food was BIG on taste. I had the pork adobo plate lunch with mac salad and, yep you guessed it, two scoops of rice! The adobo was juicy and tender.

Hubby had a tempura burger. He said it was great.

Jus' go check it out.

First off, this is the first restaurant I have ever eaten homemade french fries. Reminds me of the fries my mom used to make. Fresh and delicious. I will definitely go back and try some of there other entrees. I ordered a club sandwich with fries for $10 but it was enough for two hungry people. The sandwich was 4-5 inches thick on fresh soft bread with ham, turkey, American and Swiss cheese, apple wood bacon, tomato, sprouts and sweet onions with mayo! It really was delicious. Couldn't eat it all. Ate all the fries on top first. They also deliver!! Very nice addition to Keaau area. Highly recommended!!

It is a little hard to find, tucked away in the shopping center across from Keaau Grammar School, but it's worth it. They have a really varied menu, and it's all good. They have specials like corned beef and cabbage, and the meatloaf is great. The fries are homemade and amazing, and the burgers are excellent. The service is very good and the people are very friendly. You can tell they all really care about this restaurant and its customers.
