For a good, no frills, Hawaiian style plate lunch you can't go wrong with this place. Locals frequent here so that should tell you all you need to know.

This was our first stop after deplaning at Kona. If you’re looking for legit, local Hawaiian foods, you will not be disappointed. We went for the plate lunch which consists of a meat, rice, steamed veggies and macaroni-potato salad. The meats were mouth watering and...More
