A lot of Lihue restaurants are closed on Monday, but Smiley's was open and serving hearty portions of good bar-b-que and other fare. A favorite with locals, everyone who came in while we were there got a hug. Monday Night Football hangout. You should go.
we had the smileys chicken (chili garlic) and the Loco Moco and its was all so good. Plates are big with one selection, 2 combo plates are huge. Inexpensive compared to other restaurants. I would definitely return here!!! note.. They do not sell alcohol
