We stopped for lunch and the 2 ladies could not be more fun. They recommended pork and chicken lau lau and gladly split the rice and mac. They explained how it is prepared, and served it up in under 10 minutes. It was excellent flavor...More

The food is good, but service is very slow...truly mom n pop operation, so it taste home cook. The owners are very nice, just service slow, but I will return to buy their food.

Best hawaiian food In Kona. Laulau's, poi, pasteles, are my faves. Eat in or take out. Price is right. Very reasonable. The best part is that they treat you like family from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave.

Don't miss this place! Super J's is great local Hawaiian food prepared by a wonderful family. The pork lau lau (so tender), lomi lomi salmon, best poi on the island, and mac salad will have you wishing you had come before! Local style. Delicious.

According to an internet search it looks like they open up at 10 a.m. The costs for food is about $5-$8 (very reasonable for a plate of food). This is not a fancy place whatsoever. Imagine eating at someone's house with... More
