Thank you Aaron! We're glad that you enjoyed Kono's. We're becoming known for our milkshakes as much as our pork. Hope you can make it back again! More

We stopped in yesterday. The Old School Pulled Pork was perfect and a great value. I would highly recommend if you have a chance.

Stopped and had the Kuluha pork lunch plate. Fantastic food for a very good price. Could easily eat here every day. Good parking access and some shopping in the same area.

I had read the reviews on TripAdvisor before leaving home and traveling to Oahu. This is a quaint small place facing the street with some tables inside and outside. I arrived at 2:00 pm, which was just before they closed at 2:30 pm, and so glad I did. The counterperson took my order, attached the order slip to the line,... More

Rented a car for a beach day on the North Shore! Stopped off at Kono's to try a Breakfast Bomber! It was delicious! I got the Veggie Bomber and the Vanilla Macadamia Nut coffee. The restaurant is adorable and there is sitting outside. It is a quick and easy breakfast packed with protein to provide you with energy for the... More

This place rocks. Great Coffee and Great Breakfast burritos or tacos or whatever. They are huge and awesome. They have a number of different combos and we ate here 3x so it was really really good. People even get tattoos of their logo "a pig" just to get lifetime discounts they are so good!

We came here after in the afternoon during a rainy day at the North shore. We shared a sandwich and a salad with the pork on top. The pork was absolutely delicious and the best we had while in Hawaii. The place is casual with some indoor and outdoor seating. The service was great. We would definitely return!

Stopped here for lunch while visiting the North Shore and watching the surfers. Wife had the Bomber sandwich, which she loved. I had the old school, which was perfect. Pork was delicious and porky tasting, which we don't get much of on the mainland. The chips were great as well - not too greasy. We also got the lemonade with... More
