Went to Keneke's after a long day of hiking and hitting the beach and the food hit the spot. And then to top it off I would suggest getting a Shave Ice w/ice cream on the bottom of the cup and have it snow capped.....You will thank me later!!!

Definitely a good local spot, looks run down on the outside but they have some great food. After a long day of swimming Kaneohe it is great to hit this spot for some good mops.

Great spot to pick up a inexpensive plate lunch on your way to the beach. Recommend bringing your lunch to watch the waves at Makapu'u Beach

This place is a shack. We went to Waimanalo Beach and were exhausted. We ordered mahi mahi lunch special and Kalbi. Everything was tasty and prepared with attention. But we had to eat it in our car because the flies were annoying in the Linai. I would go back! Everything was half price of Waikiki Beach. The shaved ice was... More

Have eaten here over the years but always order the same thing -- the Kalua pig sandwich, then take it next door to the beach. I never went inside so I didn't know about the scriptures although I knew the owners were Christian. For me, that's another reason to give them my business! I read the reviews and hope they... More

They catered a dinner for our group and oh my how it was good. It was a blue plate special buffet on steroids. The Kalua park was fabulous as was the Mac salad and coleslaw. The chicken was also tasty.
