Don't be swayed by outside appearances, this place has food that you would never expect. From the awesome logo to an amazing menu that the owner cooks. It's a small space that you can sit indoors or outside. Waitstaff is limited and they are running like mad taking orders, pulling down T-shirts, pouring beer and other beverages along with ringing...

A great little spot out of the way of the touristy areas. Great burger and fries. My favorite so far is the shrimp and bacon sandwich.They make their own spicy ketchup. The lemonade is tasty. Highly recommend the jambalaya as well. If the weather is nice, sit outside.

This is always our first stop when we visit The Big Island and this time we were able to bring our entire family with us (9 adults and 3 children). We did arrive a few days before the rest of our family so we got to go twice. We have tried virtually every item on their menu and have never... More

The food was really really good especially the pepperoni fries. I didn't like how they served the locals first. So we waited an hour for food. But the food was outstanding.

We drove to this area for a coffee tour not realizing the Thunder Mountain coffee farm no longer has a location here. We ended up doing some shopping in a couple great little artists shops and stopped for lunch a Rebel Kitchen. The salad I ordered for lunch was wonderful, all fresh ingredients. My daughter ordered the veggie burger (vegan... More

We stopped in for lunch, and glad we did. Rebel Kitchen was recommended by a local, she raved about their sandwiches, she didn't steer us wrong. My BBQ pulled park sandwich was delicious. My wife's jambalaya isn't for the faint of heart....warned by the waitress that it is spicy, indeed it was! Be forewarned. Nevertheless she enjoyed it immensely. We... More

We were looking for anyplace to have lunch before we visited Kona Joe's coffee plantation. Just down the street from the entrance to Kona Joe's we found this place. What a great find on our first full day on the Big Island! Great local color abounds in this casual eatery. The menu is written in large script on the wall... More
