Owned by the same guy as Kenekes. Very similar menu, which is very good plate lunch at excellent prices. Not much for vegetarians, but good fish plate. Also, have choice of two (rice, fries, mac), which is great if you are sick of rice.

We were out at bellows air station and needed to get a bite of food, looking for some authentic local food as we are out of towners. This place had outstanding flavors and portion sizes. We got the lau lau, katsu & adobo lunch specials. Recommend!

Before going to Daves Ice Cream we always have lunch here-it's the best around. We have eaten it here and taken it to go to the beach a few times. What a great place for a pulled pork plate lunch

Wanted breakfast but didn't want chain and saw this place. Have eaten there twice and plan to go again. Simple but good and a great start to the day.

We found Ken's by surprise and decided to take a chance. It was awesome!! We actually ended up eating there three times during the week we were staying in that area. I highly recommend the loco moco. The food is very reasonably priced and affordable for a family. Don't let the price deter you- the food is worth every bite!

I ended up here on the way to sea life park after pulling into the (kinda run down looking) plaza to hit the Subway the kids were screaming for and couldn't pass up the chance to get some local flavors. Don't let the looks scare you away, eat in your car if it bothers you that much...just eat here! There... More

Order the Mini Lunch plate unless you want 2 scoops of rice with your main choice and the heavy on the may mac salad. Ono-licious pulled pork. Some flies in the covered outdoor dining. Very laid back local style place. The owner is a Christian wrestling coach. Extensive menu and shave Ice too. This is a favorite local spot.

We were looking for someplace, not fastfood to have a quick lunch on our way to the beach. To my delight, they had things all my family would end up loving AND, to my delight, I could order breakfast for myself all on top of rice! We always eat breakfast at the hotel so I never get to eat my... More
