This is another regular place we visit on our frequent trips to the Big Island. It has great local food and the prices are reasonable. The Loco Moco is great as is the Kailua pork Cabbage.

This is a really local type place. The food was really good, and even though we were obviously tourists, all of the staff was really nice to us. We had a lot of questions about things on the menu, and they were very nice to answer all of our questions, even though they were probably dumb questions that tourists ask! I appreciated their patience with me and my kids. The grilled fish, and fish and chis were all great. I loved the salad and the sautéed vegetables, all very delicious, which sometimes you don't get a very good salad or vegetables at a place like this. We drove by on Sunday and it looked like they were closed, so if check the opening times if you plan to go on a Sunday. I don't think they are open.

We ate lunch here after snorkeling several spots on the south side of the island. Good Fries and Slaw with pineapple. We had a fish burger that was good. Thought about desert - looked like some nice ones but decided not. Building a bit old (probably an old McDonald's/Burger King) but seemed more down home Hawaii with plate lunch type meals for many.
