We only came here out of convenience. A little hole in the wall joint next to the Kona Coffee store. To our surprise the food is actually quite excellent and the price is super affordable. We wish we found this place earlier.

We were told about this place by a local and they were right! The menu is huge--Asian, Mexican, Hawaiian, Mainland dishes! Friendly people-we commented on the large menu and they said well everyone wants something different. Nothing fancy but clean, friendly, good food, great prices!

On our way to the airport and stopped to eat. Large menu with a lot of variety. Hubby had the cheeseburger and I had the grilled shrimp sandwich. Both were delicious, would highly recommend. Looks like lots of locals are eating here as well.
