I went to Hawaiian Time which I like to do a few times a year. The food is great and the service is always friendly and fast. I wish they had a Loco Moco Bowl but other than that the food offerings are broad and make for an authentic experience. I had a mixed plate of Kalua Pig and Honolulu... More

Good size meal for the money and would be a bit more of a Hawaiian feel if they actually played Hawaiian music.....felt their sauces were too thin and runny. Need to make them thicker.....

We love Hawaiian Time! The food is so good. The staff is great and they are very quick. It's so nice to get real food, quickly and at a fair price. Gluten free notes: They make a lot of there own sauces here so many of the item are gluten free. You have to skip the Mac salad but if... More

Really like this place. A chance to get some Hawaiian taste that is reasonable. Both the pulled pork & teriyaki chicken are my favorites.

I've been here many times and never been disappointed. I love the mac salad and the teriyaki chicken. I also like that you get a decent size portion for the price. Will definitely be back again

The food is great -- no frills -- just regular plate lunches very much akin to what you would find in the islands. Step up to the counter -- order -- get your drink -- they bring the food -- and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.
