Been coming here for years used to love it. The pork adobo was my fave. Today I went for the last time. I enjoyed the 1st few bites of pork until I found a fried fly in the middle of it al! Pictures to follow

A friend recommended this place so we stopped there after surfing & it was so good! Cheap eats & plenty of food! I had the garlic shrimp & my friend had BBQ chicken. So many options to choose from I think we are going back there for dinner tonight, too!

While visiting my brother in Honolulu he recommended this Hawaiian Plate lunch spot. It did not disappoint! Very inexpensive with huge portions. We got the "pick 3" and my favorite was the Kalua pig and Mahi mahi. A must try for those that like a traditional non-touristy spot!

Went to Keneke's after a long day of hiking and hitting the beach and the food hit the spot. And then to top it off I would suggest getting a Shave Ice w/ice cream on the bottom of the cup and have it snow capped.....You will thank me later!!!

Definitely a good local spot, looks run down on the outside but they have some great food. After a long day of swimming Kaneohe it is great to hit this spot for some good mops.

Great spot to pick up a inexpensive plate lunch on your way to the beach. Recommend bringing your lunch to watch the waves at Makapu'u Beach

This place is a shack. We went to Waimanalo Beach and were exhausted. We ordered mahi mahi lunch special and Kalbi. Everything was tasty and prepared with attention. But we had to eat it in our car because the flies were annoying in the Linai. I would go back! Everything was half price of Waikiki Beach. The shaved ice was... More
