Very close to Kona Airport, many food to choose from (it would be better if they can include some pictures on the menu) Must go place if you want to eat some local food!!

We go here to get great food and lots of it. The kitchen turns out a great variety of food from plate lunches to deli sandwiches and full meals. When you want authentic local food served hot and delicious this is the place. They even have the best Reuben sandwich in Hawaii. Soups are to die for. A great place... More

If you are arriving Kona around lunchtime, this is an excellent choice to satisfy those hunger pains. I enjoyed the ahi sandwich and my husband had the Maui plate. Portions are good and food was delicious. Place was busy and many choices on menu made it difficult to decide. Many locals here which is always a good sign.

We stopped here twice on a day trip to Kona. We had breakfast here. The Denver Omelet was very good. You get a lot of food for the price. On the way back to the airport. I had the spicy garlic chicken. It was absolutely divine. If you're in the area you should give them a try you won't be... More

The place was busy and that is always a good thing. There were lots of locals eating. The sandwich was ok and the banana bread was a little to hard for me but over all a good meal.

All locals and workers here for lunch. It's great portions for a great price and tons of flavory. I got the Korean chicken (fried chicken wings with a sweet and spicy sauce), and it was *so* satisfying. Throw in some cheapo mash potatoes and gravy and potato-mac salad and you have yourself a nice little BBQ plate!

We stopped in for lunch after getting off the long flight in. Had chicken teriyaki with rice and it came with salad and it was really good. Perfect place to stop in for a quick bite to eat

Amazing food options and great selection. I had the spicy fired chicken plate lunch and wish I could eat it again. We got lunch before our trip home and this was a great choice that was given to us by friend. If your looking for something quick that tastes great this is the place to go. Ordering to dine in...

Went here on the recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed! The loco moco was delicious. It's not an expensive place, and the portions are huge. We should have made one last stop before going back to the airport, it's really close and there's nothing else of note in the airport.
