If you're down south of Kona - you need to make this lunch stop. The owners are extremely engaging and you feel you are eating at their house - food is amazing and simple. Would highly recommend.

We ate lunch at What's Shakin' last week after visiting the Botanical Gardens in the morning (they are very close to each other). This is a very cute, feels like old-Hawaii countryside, place to eat. Super casual outdoor eating on covered picnic tables. Our family...More

It's in a random spot. It is still open and worth stopping by on the way to Akaka Falls!

The last time I was there it was still for sale. (3 weeks ago) Best to call them. The ladies said even if it sold they would be open and they would still be working there. No problem. Aloha, Ron
