We come to Hawaii 1-2 times a year and this place never disappoints. This is the original Roy's so it's true to the roots vs some other locations. Zach is the man at the bar with his drink-making skills and hospitality. You have to order...More

Hawaii Kai, Which is where we live (d) and where we keep going back to. We always order takeout ribs and eat at sunset on a beach or park.
