“Good chicken!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

I had the combo, which includes pork ribs, beef and chicken. The chicken is legitimately tasty, the ribs were good, and the beef was decent. It comes with rice and beans-- bland until you mix them together. Food is prepared quickly and packaged to travel. I'd go back, definitely for the chicken!

This was great! You would never think of stopping by here by just looking at it but it is delicious and the owner seems to love what he does. Great portions and sauces!

“Legit BBQ out of a barrel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014 via mobile

Wife and I stopped in for dinner hoping for good bbq. We found it here. We are originally from the south so bbq is a big deal for us. We now live on Oahu and haven't found anywhere that is remotely as good as this. We had the sampler and the rib plate and both were generous with a side of chili and rice too. Their meats are all super moist and the ribs are super tender and fall off the bone. Kudos! Check this place out don't fear the side of the road hut like appearance, you would be surprised what people can do with just a little space!

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Looks a bit shoddy when you drive by but this was a great find for us. Had a delicious pulled pork sandwich while listening to the country music they play there. Friendly staff. Def worth a visit for a quick bite while you are out and about on the north shore!

“Good Chicken and quick meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

We stopped and got the chicken for two meal. The chicken and chili were very good. The rice was dry and bland.. I was hoping for some island style rice with beans but the rice was simply out of the box. If you like chicken this is definitely worth the stop.
