Fab atmosphere, ladies dressed up in the 50's gear. Fab boppers burgers as they are the best. Good choice of food to eat. Reasonable priced. You can buy 50's/60's items in the cafe. Thank you for the best bopper burgers.

I saw this place on Mystery Diners awhile back and just had to come here. Their kahula pork is the best I've had in Hawaii. Really fun place to come and dine.
