This is the place to go if you want truly authentic Hawaiian food on the Hilo side of the Big Island. Huge portions at good prices.

If you are into greasy fried food, then this might be the place for you. It sits right next to a gas station, and right off HWY 11, so definitely a convenient stop if you absolutely must get a bite of pure unhealthiness. The taste...More
