“Great way to end the beach day”
Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

This is a great little restaurant with great grill food. The chicken is definitely the most impressive but the ribs, beef and pork BBQ was delicious as well! The service was great and the atmosphere was very relaxed. Great way to finish off a day on the beach!

“Incredible roadside stop”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Who knew chicken smoked in a barrel could be so great. BBQ plates, not too cheap, but decent value. Worth a stop.

“great chicken, pork not so much”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

got the sampler- pork ribs pretty good, chicken great, brisket not very good(tough and without flavor) and pulled pork dry. Go for the chicken. Potato salad and rice good, nothing special- beans are good. I would recommend and go again for sure but its by no means the best BBQ ever

“Great ribs!”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Pork Ribs are the best! (tender and easy to chew -- not over or under cooked) Mild sauce was awesome! People are friendly! Atmosphere was great... we sat outside under umbrellas during a quick rain shower and then bright sun... while watching people Christmas shop in this nice outdoor mall. Great experience.

“Great chicken and ribs for lunch”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

We stopped in for a quick outdoor lunch at Chicken in a Barrel in Hanalei and were really pleased. The chicken and rib combo was fantastic and the price was reasonable. Nothing fancy but tasty. Can't go wrong if this is what you feel like having.
