Food seems consistent, but there appears to be a lot of homeless that hang around the restaurant. I believe you need a bathroom code for this reason. Sometimes it could also be cleaner.

What's to be said? It's McDonalds. Service was prompt and friendly. The food was just what we expected.

For a quick inexpensive bite Mc Donalds offers a refuge from the Alii Strip. Typical Fast Food fare in a predictable atmosphere.

Because it opens at 6am, it is a great place to grab some cheap food for that hike up the volcano or out to a hidden beach.

This location is a block from our hotel and offered us a break from expensive restaurants. Our food tasted like all the other McD's but cost a little more. Have the app and used the coupons from the app at this location. It is what we expected and what our budget needed. Mahalo

Not a huge fan of mcdonalds but it works in a pinch when you are in a hurry...the lady was nice and for a change they were actually fast. The biscuit, sausage mcmuffin and hash brown was good.

After eating wonderful Kona food for almost two weeks, we found we seldom had room for a dessert, too. We discovered that McDonald's has very good vanilla cones, just the right size, for less than $1. They are very creamy and tasty.

Other sandwiches, medium, I take em home, and expect to heat them, its not a person thing, I believe it is a franchise thing, which sucks. The coffee drinks... More
