We stopped in thinking Ice cream and burger type place.... NOTHING like that. It was dirty. Obviously trying to stay alive. I felt bad, but the place didn't look all that clean. The Fried Mahi was YELLOW, like banana yellow...??? huh?? THE french fries were AWESOME. But that was it. Weird menu. I couldn't get a basic GRILLED CHEESE. I... More

I've been here a couple of times and have always just wanted a snack and not a full meal. I tried the Spam Musubi the first time I was here and was really impressed. Not sure what it is other than maybe the sauce that they quickly saute the Spam in, but it is just really tasty and better than... More

A pleasant local eatery with tasty plate lunch and typical fast food offerings. Good value in scenic Honokaa.

We stopped for breakfast on our way from Mauna Lani to Volcanoes NP. The service was quick and the food was cheap (compared to other parts of Hawaii) and hot. We had the banana pancakes (3) which were enormous and could probably feed 2 people. We kept our leftovers for breakfast the next day. Recommended for some cheap, no frills... More

Stopped for lunch on our trip around the island. Great burgers with lots of crispy fries. Fast service and inexpensive.

This diner takes you back to another time. The food was good and the seating was outside under the patio. It was a nice break after the Wai'pi'o Falls adventure. Definitely worth stopping and eating.

I ordered a tuna sandwich, corn chowder, and coke. It took them a loooooong time for them to serve me. People who placed orders AFTER me we're getting their food BEFORE me! When I did get my food the chowder was lukewarm! Oh well. At least my coke was cold.

First this place is dirty! Tables outside are dirty and the restrooms are old and very dirty! So imagine the place where the prepare the food. We ordered 2 combos(cheeseburgers, fries and diet coke).

Drove by on the way to the falls, worth the stop, worth the food. You will only be disappointed it is not located closer to your hotel/resort.

The thing that turned me off right away was the cleanliness of everything. If we would have had more time (we only had about 30 minutes because we were on our way to horseback riding) we probably would have gone somewhere else. We had to both use the restaurant shortly after ordering and it was really gross. Barely flushed, there... More
