“Good food, reasonable value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

Fantastic chicken, good flavor. Seating is limited and there are a fair amount of flies....not something the restaurant can help. Take your order to go.

The owner is friendly, at first, but don't fall in love; if you are not a local he doesn't know you once your order is complete. Not a particularly unusual Hawaiian experience, but a little disappointing going from being welcomed like old friends to being ignored later when I asked a question.

Check the hours, and don't arrive too late in the day. When they are out of chicken, they close.

Anyway, you're not coming here to make friends, just for a great chicken experience. Ignore the owner, order some chicken, and take it to go. You won't be unhappy!

“Good ribs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

I'm from Arkansas and we have lots of great rib places. The ribs here matched any we have had before. Would highly recommend the ribs. I understand the chicken is also good.

“Cheap Way to do Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014 via mobile

We stopped and got two half chickens and some ribs to go back to our condo. The chicken was moist and good and the ribs fell right off the bones, also very good. Their sauces were good too, make sure you take some with you.
