“ONO GRINDz”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2009

Lots of Aloha for this ONO kiawe grilled food place! Generous amount of food for the price. I agree that it is not the greatest place to stay and eat, and the parking because of the small lot for all the surrounding business is tight. But if you go 'off peek' times to take out, the food is well worth your tummy being HAPPY and SATISFIED!!

“Not Worth It”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2009

This place is supposed to be known for its burgers and they do have some unusual choices (for Honolulu) like Venison and Ostrich. But don't go out of your way to dine here. Parking is scarce, there's only four tables and the place is a dump. The ostrich burger can best be described as "rubbery." A salmon burger has so little fish that you mostly end up with empty bun. The "deluxe" version gets you a couple pieces of wilted lettuce. At least I have to assume that was what made it a deluxe because there wasn't anything else in there (no tomato, no onions, no cheese, nada, nuttin, zilcho). Most of the people eating here seem to go for the Korean BBQ so you might want to try that. Better yet, you might want to make the minimal amount of effort it would take to find someplace nicer to eat at.

Yummy! Awesome amount of food for a reasonable price. Unique menu (for example, ostrich burgers).
