We found this wagon near our hotel, and gave it a go. Nice chicken meal with reasonable price. It is expensive when we eat at restaurant in Hawaii so we needed this kind of meal and we satisfied:)

Chicken was moist and tender and had that Smokey flavor. Sides are good as well. Macaroni salad was moist.

Stopped here on a tour bus trip and it took forever. The food is just ok, we wouldn’t waste our time going back.

Wide variety on the menu beside chicken. The tacos & salads are delicious. And the ribs are so juicy and tender. Large portion sizes, too! French fries & onion rings were amazing!

We didn't expect to find good BBQ in Hawaii but this place was very good and the staff was very friendly. A small place, limited outdoor seating only.
