“Best kalua pork sandwich ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

Great pork sandwich, and nice offerings on the kids menu. They even make their POG. The very helpful front staff helped our group of 11 stay very happy!!! The special was a curried chicken papaya salad, but the pork was what I craved.

“Wrap Your Lips on This Turkey Wrap!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014 via mobile

Nice little quaint joint off the main drag through Haleiwa town. They have a nice selection of healthy foods and milkshakes to die for! We shared a Smoked Turkey Ranch Club Wrap that was generous enough for a senior couple's appetite. Veggies were cool, fresh, and crunchy, with lots of turkey and cheese, drizzled with ranch dressing and bacon bits. Only negative were the pesky flies that weren't deterred by the free-swinging screen curtain at the entrance. Lots of tables to sit and have your meals outdoors too! Prices are moderate for the location and worth the trip to the North Shore!

“Legit and Cheap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

Drove out to North Shore just to give this joint a try. Ordered the biscuit and gravy bomb (burrito) and was not disappointed. This place is the real deal! Possibly the best breakfast burrito I have ever had. Give it a try.

“Second Visit...Still Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

This place was recommended to us by one of the locals during our first trip to Hale'iwa in November last year. It made such a lasting impression that it was on our 'must-do' list for our return trip in March. This place is popular, so you can expect a little bit of a wait but the food is worth it - recommended by locals, tourists and the pro surfers alike!

I highly recommend the Kalua Pig Sandwiches (Hawaiian Pulled Pork) they are delicious and so filling. Their freshly squeezed lemonades and limeades are really refreshing on a hot day. This trip I tried their milkshakes (strawberry and pineapple) which were easily the best things I have ever tasted.

Great service, great food - we will certainly come back for a third time!

“Kono's is a must stop on the North Shore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

Found Kono's by accident - best food at a great price! Had the pig bomber (split with my husband) - it was awesome- meat was so tender. My daughters had a breakfast bomber(in a rolled tortilla) and a bagel with cream cheese. The perfect spot if you have picky kids. I just wish it was closer to our hotel. Get the coconut cream pie shake for dessert- delish!!
