Great burgers just a short drive form the beach. We really enjoyed the very charming building. We had the cheeseburger with bacon and it was super tasty. Very basic, no fuzz, but usually thats the best way with burgers. Would definitely go back!

We're local with tons of experience eating plate lunches. We decided to spend the day at Waimanalo Beach, and instead of packing food, we chose to get something from Kanekes. Passed by the place a million times, but never have food from there. I really...More

My family and I stopped here as we passed through Waimanalo. From the outside, the restaurant does not look impressive, however, the food is excellent! Each person in my family ordered a lunch special which consisted of a choice of protein (shrimp, chicken, pork, etc.),...More

Keneke's is a great little local spot to try popular plate lunches of Hawaii. Food is good and fresh and reasonably priced. Doesn't look like much but everything we ordered was delicious!
