This is a don't miss every trip - I dream about their chicken. And the employees are always happy and fun to chat with (especially when you stop for a picture while on a scavenger hunt!).

Ribs, chicken, and beef were delicious, but...

Chili had a burned flavor and seasoned with cayenne pepper. Not my favorite. Brown rice was dry and bland. Selection of two BBQ sauces was good.

High price for overall quality. Right on highway, outdoor seating only, but covered and plentiful. Best feature: sink with soap right in the seating area made it easy to clean up after dinner.

This is a great stop for a quick lunch, or grab some meat to take home for dinner. It's ONO (as they say on the island!) Very good!

Overall an ok BBQ experience — unique flavoring from the smoking. My wife and I ordered the sampler for lunch to share. Quick service with helpful staff. Food was good, really enjoyed the side of chili. Have to admit that eating chicken outside with chickens walking around was interesting though when in Kauai you knifes get used to it.

This is for the place in Hanalei. The selling point for our group was the fries. They were crisp and tasty. Our group went with burgers, which were large, good, and filling. Two of us only had drinks, and the staff checked with us twice to make sure they had not forgotten our order. Certainly worth a visit.
