So I'm a Loco Moco fan and my wife is a short rib fan. I got both. Rice was good, not sticky, Mac salad was spot on. Loco was done on previously frozen patty. Not even quality. I'd put it at a 73 or 75% fat kinda frozen patty. Not good at all. The short ribs were good I think.... More

We really enjoyed our lunch here.. The saiman noodles with bbq chicken was delicious. We also ordered spam masubi. It was delicious. They cooked the spam in teriyaki sauce which is just the way we like it. My husband had the beef patties with gravy with white rice and mac salad. The beef was good but the mac salad was... More

If you want that classic Hawaiian plate lunch taste except no substitutes this is it. As good as any on the islands. Love this place. Also the only place around to get Hawaiian Sun drinks. Yum yum!!!

Wonderful, simple, tasty food. The BBQ (Teryaki) chicken is outstanding and the mac salad is pure delight.

As with all places now days, we noticed increased prices and smaller portions. Being that we're HUNDREDS of miles away from Home, this one is just a 20 minute ride on our bike, this is one of the "next best thing" here in Arizona. As usual, Lau Lau kalua combo for me and wife ordered Kalua pork plate. Sorry to... More

Not too many places still offer Lau lau these days. We always get the Manapua while there and Poke is always fresh too, albeit costly. Can't beat this place for good loco food. We drive/ride 45 minute to this place, well worth our time & money.

I love their BBQ beef. I wish their Kimchi portion was bigger as it is the kind that I prefer. They do a huge lunch business.

Me and my officemates ate here after work for dinner. Upon entering the place, my first impression about it was Sloppy. But the cashier area and the overall looks of the resto was not that pleasing. The food signs at the cashier area were all around the place and kinda confusing as you do not know what this place is... More

I got the short ribs with double rice. The rib flavor was nice but I wish they could have make the meat more tender. The rice was ok. It's rice.
