We found this place by accident next to a city parking lot. We enjoyed the BBQ chicken and coleslaw so much that we went back the next night. The portions are generous. They have a large variety of beverages, including beer. The staff is friendly and helpful. Everyone seemed to be enjoying the food and atmosphere. We would definitely go back!

Best Hawaiian fare outside of the islands!
The Spam musibi is the best. The Kaluia pork is excellent as are the Korean spareribs.
And you can finish up with a shave ice.

In a toss-up between which ethnic cuisine to go to -- this eatery situated on the same block as Sol Food has no waiting lines, is easy to get to and be done with. The food is Hawaiian as expected and the prices carry the Hawaiian tag. Perhaps, answers why the majority gravitate a little further to the Sol Food place where the prices seem better even if the waiting-line is not.

Fast friendly service. Great atmosphere. I had the Hawaiian BBQ chicken on my first visit, coconut shrimp on the second trip. Sides were rice and macaroni. Outstanding! Flavor filled served hot and fresh. A real gem.

So much great barbecue for a great price! I got the Hawaiian bbq chicken and it was delicious and a very generous portion. I would definitely come often if I lived in the area!
