My wife had a vegetarian omelet and I had "Carla's" omelet with Portuguese sausage & veggies. Both were plentiful and thus satisfying, but were nothing out of the ordinary. Fine for what it is, just not special.

Close to airport, easy stop, good menu. Stop here after you arrive for breakfast/lunch, you won't regret.

This was the worst food I had on the Big Island and the workers were not friendly. Although they gave a lot of food my hamburger and fries were terrible and my wife also couldn't eat her meal.

Hard to add more superlatives but this place is an easy choice. Quick service and a friendly staff, clean and certainly reasonable.

A lot of local Hawaiian dishes in a no-frills, diner setting in a strip mall. But the food is very good, cheap for Hawaii, and the portions are huge.

This place is a little out of the way unless you are visiting the sea horse center, then it is close by some great lava beaches on the natural coastline. Food was great, big portions. 50.00 for 3 people at lunch and took home enough...More

Not yet, hopefully soon!! They do have tons of menu items to choose from, not to mention their daily specials on their board by the cashier.
