“The best Huli Huli Chicken”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

We stopped at Bobbie's to eat after arriving in Hanapepe for the Friday Night Art Walk. We ordered the Huli Huli Chicken and it was the most juicy, moist and tender chicken - very delicious. You will receive a 1/2 chicken with this plate, along with rice and another choice of side (green salad or mac salad). It was also the largest 1/2 chicken we'd ever seen. Between 3 orders for the 3 of us, we were able to finish off only 1/2 chicken, leaving a whole chicken, along with a lot of rice. Staying in a cottage, we were able to take it home and it provided us with another 2 meals. So, a great value for the money as well! It is very plain inside and I assume during the day, the tables are inside as well. For the Art Walk, there was no seating inside as the tables were out in front of the small restaurant. But the ambiance is not why you eat at Bobbie's. It was fun to just sit outside as the sun set and people watch while we ate. The staff was very friendly and patient as we reviewed the menu deciding what to order (although the menu is not very complicated, simple but delicious Hawaiian fare).

“Looks can be deceiving!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

We were hungry and dropped in without knowing anything about the place, it was just the only place open that we could find. The interior didn't look like much, menus were handwritten on colored cards and the furniture was basic, yet it turned out to be some of the best food we had in 4 days on Kauai! The lady who took our order and served us was so genuinely friendly, she gave us recommendations, then kept bringing us samples of the other things on the menu, and everything was authentic and delicious! This is the kind of place that the locals go to and for good reason. I will not visit Kauai without stopping by Bobbies again!

“Worst food on the planet”

Scary and dirty. I didn't even eat the food they prepared after I saw what the kitchen looked like.

“A local gem!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

Four of us wandered into Hanapepe quite by accident and found Bobbie's. It looked like it might be a good local spot and we were not disappointed. It is very small and only one person doing everything, but the food was local and good. This is not a tourist spot, most of the patrons were locals. The food is heavily influenced by the various immigrant groups in Hawaii expecially Korean.
It was a blast.
