“Local color”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Always like to give the nod to the place that couldn't be anywhere but where it is. Straight up Hawaiian breakfast and lunch place with no tourists except for me of course. You will know for a fact that you aren't in Denver anymore. Service was very friendly and attentive, food was tasty, and they have a daily special board that looks like it was new in about 1967.

“Inexpensive breakfasts, casual atmosphere”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

I always eat the #2 breakfast - 2 pancakes, 2 eggs, and a cup of coffee is $6.25. It is a casual, smallish place tucked in the Aina Haina shopping center. They also serve mahimahi plates and burgers - for breakfast.

“Local breakfast spot”
Reviewed July 17, 2011

I am a mainlander with family in Honolulu. I have gone to Jacks for 20 yrs and have not been disappointed. Local breakfast fare (fish and eggs, sweet biscuits), along with pancakes and bacon and eggs. Nothing fancy, great comfort food and good prices.

“Great find!”
Reviewed September 21, 2010

We found this place quite by accident. After hiking Diamond Head and heading to Hanauma bay we were looking for food but didn't want fast food. We pulled into the strip mall and came upon Jacks. Great Food. Good prices. We only ate breakfast but the pancakes and omelets were fantastic. My son who is the pickiest eater and he even said we could go back. There is not much seating so you may have to wait. Dont give into temptation and just run into the McDonalds. You won't be disappointed.

“Good local eatery at reasonable prices.”
Reviewed February 9, 2010

Jack's in on the Kalanianaole Hwy (route 72), in a strip mall on the mauka (inland) side of the road. Traveling from Honolulu to Hanauma Bay, look for the McDonald's on the left, a bit more than a mile after H1 ends and becomes 72.

I went local with a spam and green onion omelet, which was (for me) surprisingly tasty . My wife had ahi and eggs, which was also was great.
