Small venue but great food! Five star service and a great family atmosphere. The chicken and pork plates are amazing and the burgers are worth the trip. We eat Fat Waves at least once a week. And they deliver to the local area!

Seriously, this might be the best Hawaiian food east of the Pacific. The Kalua Pig Tacos were to die for. My wife had Quesadillas with Kalua Pig, which "was the jam." A real favorite with the locals, and has developed a real following.
