Excellent island food served in a casual and spotless setting. We arrived early, 5:00 PM and the woman behind the counter went over the menu in much more detail than one would expect. You could get several things in different sizes with different spices. She...More

Quality food. Quality service from family own/run place. We had the ahi cakes last night. We swallowed the plate in a flash. It was that good!!!

The plate lunches are flavorful and filling. Nice little diner that reminds me of the past. Seems to be a local joint where a lot of peeps come to which is a good sign. Would come back if I'm in the area.

I typically go to Dean's when craving a plate lunch meal. I prefer the better quality food such as brown rice and/or salad with the meal vs. white rice and mac salad. The hamburger steak and steak plates are my favorites. The hamburger steak meaty...More

If you're looking for a friendly diner with a panoply of beef, seafood, and vegetarian selections, you'd be wise to search out Dean's Drive-In. The fact that Dean's was featured a few years back on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives will be recommendation enough for most...More

Never had a bad experience at Dean's. Everything is good. I personally like the ahi belly. Lightly crisp & juicy. Teriyaki also good. The salads are worth every penny & huge! Ahi cakes cooked just right, never over cooked. I go there all the time.

Found this place by chance when looking for a close lunch spot to the valley of the temples. It definitely is a hole in the wall locals place but soooo worth it. We got the ahi cakes plate and the ahi catch of the day...More
