First time visiting the Big Island. So glad that have finally been able to try the home of Loco Moco. The egg was cooked perfectly! Can’t wait to see come back. Service was great and loved visiting a local eatery.

We stopped here for lunch. We both had loco moco and it was quite good. It was our first time trying it. Probably not very healthy, but filling and delicious. There is an "old-diner" vibe to this place. It is fast food.

Great place for a reasonably priced breakfast and lunch. They have regular foods that I eat and some Hawaiian foods that my wife tried. It is a walk up window and they have seating. Always a lot of cars in the parking lot.

We had read this was the original home of the loco moco so we figured if we were going to have loco moco why not here. We both ordered the original and it was very good. It was just the right size portion. There were...More
