We stopped off here for some fast takeout after leaving the beach and were so glad we did! Every day since we have tried to go back! The meat was so flavoursome and tender. We got a sample/mixed meat pack and loved every bite! Will...More

We ordered some burgers and a couple of pork plates to go after the beach. The salty pork, brown rice and creamy macaroni salad hit the spot. The kids liked their burgers. It was cheap, fast and easy.

It's a quick little stop for comfort food in you're in Hanalei. Good food, enough options and decent prices.

Check out the restroom before you go to this place. It is in the building next door. Gross. Sadly, I was with a group and they had already ordered. Everyone complained that the food was nothing unusual. In my opinion, this is a dive, but...More

Have tried several seafood and meat platters with all the sides and fixings - this place was probably the only place that was actually decently priced in Kauai. You get a lot of food (meat) for your money. The Thai BBT was really good too...More
