Living in the Southeastern US, never thought I would find the best BBQ off of the mainland. Boy was I wrong. We stopped on one our last days in Hawaii. I had the Kailua sliders and they were unbelievable. They were made on toasted Hawaiian rolls and had cole slaw on the sandwiches. Ridiculously good. When we arrived back home, I immediately ran to the store to buy some stuff to try and make these. Nothing like the ones from Konos. Highly recommend!

Went here our first morning because our son raved about it and we were so happy with our breakfast! The bombers were great and my BEACH was delicious. I don't know what kind of bread it was served on but it was oh so good!!!

This is a must-visit restaurant if you're in the area, but we warned they close early! I usually ate here for breakfast before scuba diving. Their burritos are dangerously good and filling, so show up hungry! I no longer live on the island and I miss this place so much.

A nice little place to grab some local BBQ. The meat is fresh and reasonably place. The staff is friendly and helpful. Shakes are delicious!
