Haven't been back to Kailua-Kona for a year but after our quick flight from Honolulu -- we were famished. Instead of heading out to the resort for an overpriced mediocre breakfast -- we drove into Kailua-Kona to the Big Island Grill. What a great place for breakfast (served till 10:30 am); Pork chops and eggs or try the chicken katsu locotra moco. Chicken katsu is a deep fried chicken thigh breaded in panko -- crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Take that, plop it over a bed of rice (I had brown rice) and their fabulous brown gravy and a perfectly cooked fried egg and you're halfway to heaven. You can choose your loco moco protein at the Big Island Grill -- traditional hamburger patty, spam, Portuguese sausage, other stuff. Can't make up your mind? Get the BIG loco -- and choose three. My wife ordered the pork chops and eggs -- two perfectly cooked porkchops, eggs, hashbrowns. And the server, kindly asked if she'd like some gravy too!. Good service, lots of locals, kid friendly, just a great place to eat whether you're visiting Kona for the first time or a repeat traveler like me. It's one my go to places on the Big Island.
