My wife and I found Uncle Bo's Pupu Bar & Grill via Trip Advisor so checked it out for dinner. The food was excellent, and only a short walk from main Waikiki. I would recommend Uncle Bo's Pupu Bar & Grill to all travelers going to Honolulu.

Ok, so it's not exactly fine dining. But it was such an amazing dinner it really was my favorite food I ate in my week on Oahu. I wish that they had one in Seattle! It doesn't look like much from outside, and it's certainly not fancy, but the food is amazing. We got the dynamite shrimp, which was a... More

Before going to Hawaii, I did a bunch of homework on local restaurants that I wanted to dine at and Uncle Bo's was on my list. Initially "poo-poo'd" by my wife, I convinced her and the kids to go and our family is so pleased that we came here for the pupu!!! Everything we ordered was exceptional, especially the pork...

If you're visiting waikiki, don't leave without trying this place! We had a great bottle of wine and the pupus were fantastic. This will be the first place I go back to if ever in waikiki again. The best meal we had during our 5 night stay.

Turned up without a booking (tip - reserve a table!) and they squeezed us in (6 of us) with a smile. Everything we ordered was really good. Clams and clam chowder stood out but all thoroughly enjoyed. Kids loved it too. Service excellent. Looking forward to going back!

Our taxi driver from the airport recommended we went to Uncle Bo's and we are so glad we did! This restaurant has great food and service!! After being in Hawaii for a couple of days I was after a good steak and veg meal and that's exactly what Uncle Bo's had with half the price of the restaurants around Waikiki!... More

Who knew such a local gem existed within 5 minutes of Waikiki. Looked a bit sketchy from the outside but it was VERY nice and modern on the inside. Staff was very helpful and friendly, food was delicious! Parking was a bit of a challenge but once we circled the block and got oriented with the area, we scored a... More

This place was recommended by a local. Out of the way but worth the effort of finding it. We had 2 pupus/ entrees ( I'd call it the Hawaiin version of Tapas). The two of us were full but more importantly the food was fantastic. The service was also first class. Never waited for drinks, food very quick to come... More

Unassuming from the outside, but quite nice inside. We ordered 4 appetizers for dinner. Too much for the two of us, but they made a great lunch for the next day.. The menu offers a variety of interesting meals. Good place for a celebration.

We made a reservation and were glad we did. This is a small restaurant, but wonderful food. There were four of us eating. Our waitress was great giving us suggestions and explaining the entrees. We started with two wonderful appetizers...Uncle Bo's Dynamite Shrimp and Boca Rota. They were so flavorful and large portions. I would love to know how they... More
