After visiting a couple of beaches on the north shore we stopped in town to get a bite. We were not disappointed at all. Everything we ate was delicious, we basically locked our plates. The hostess and waitress were really helpful, provided excellent service.

It can be difficult to find a wide selection of food options in Haleiwa after 6:00 and most of the opened restaurants will be busy and certainly Luibueno's was but worth the wait. We were able to sit at the bar and were promptly seated....More
