Got the kahlua pork and the seafood plates. Both were good, lots of food. The seafood plate only had 1 small scallop though- a letdown. That said, i esp liked the mac salad

Nice menu of bar-b- qued items. The prices are a little on the high side. This is basically a fast food place with picnic tables for people eating.

The garlic mahi was good, served atop a basic salad. Lots of different plate lunches for cheap (Kauai standards) eats. Everything is pretty quick...order at the window, and eat at picnic tables.

Do you want to eat like a local? This is your place. We've eaten at both locations. Not my favorite, mainly because you aren't sure what your ordering and the staff is unfriendly! I've heard locals explaining what dishes are many times. If you try...More

My daughter loves bubble tea and spotted the sign that they sold it here. She loved it and was excited to find it in Hawaii. We did not try the food but recommend the stop for bubble (Boba) tea lovers.
