The food is good, but service is very slow...truly mom n pop operation, so it taste home cook. The owners are very nice, just service slow, but I will return to buy their food.

Best hawaiian food In Kona. Laulau's, poi, pasteles, are my faves. Eat in or take out. Price is right. Very reasonable. The best part is that they treat you like family from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave.

Don't miss this place! Super J's is great local Hawaiian food prepared by a wonderful family. The pork lau lau (so tender), lomi lomi salmon, best poi on the island, and mac salad will have you wishing you had come before! Local style. Delicious.

I see the very high reviews, but I really did not think much of the food. It could be, because I do not enjoy traditional Hawaiian food? I ordered the chicken and pork lau lau and thought there was nothing too special about them. It...More

J herself helped us to choose dishes for this family-style lunch. Our favorites were the delicious and tender steamed pork in leaves and the coconut dessert. Don't let the weird family/office furniture scare you away, since the restaurant doubles as a family home. Can be...More

According to an internet search it looks like they open up at 10 a.m. The costs for food is about $5-$8 (very reasonable for a plate of food). This is not a fancy place whatsoever. Imagine eating at someone's house with... More
