I'm sorry you were not able to visit our restaurant while you were staying in the area last January. We have been given a series of challenges recently. My father who lives in Santa Barbara has had to handle fires, and floods in his area....More

BoBo's was closed for Renos during the week of Jan 13, 2018. Better check before you make a special trip up the coast. Rating reflects it's current average.

Amazing cheese burger, excellent ginger lemonade served outside at the side of the road. One of the best burgers I've ever had.

A tiny place off Kaaawa Beach. Looks like a small house. If you go too fast you will miss it. Excellent beach eating. Husband and wife run this place. Very friendly Aloha spirit. Whatever you order YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. Check it out.
