We went here on a recommendation from a work colleague who had previously visited. It did not dissappoint. The ribs were amazing and I recommend the jacket potato with filling. My husband got mixed ribs and I had babyback and they were both fantastic. Drinks were good and well priced. Too full for dessert. Definitely worth a visit, we even... More

Great food the ribs are lovely. The meals are huge. Wait staff were great. Was in walking distance to most of the hotels in Waikiki. They also have a car park behind the restaurant. They do a range of different meals so split with more than one option. My boyfriend had ribs, steak and prawns in his meal.

Definitely the best ribs in Waikiki. Baby back ribs to die for. Service was good. Food was plentiful. Good location and easy walk from most hotels in Waikiki. Highly recommend and a must for travellers coming from Australia, given that prices of Ribs in restaurants in OZ are so expensive!

I am an unabashed ribs lover - eat it whenever I can and when I saw that there was a TonyRoma's, I was over there as soon as I could. I got there at 6:30 as I know that they fill up quick. As I was a single person at a table, I was seated by the kitchen (in front... More

My wife and I went to Tony Roma's for my birthday. I ordered a slab of baby back ribs. But what was served were two 1/2 racks. The smaller end was a dwarf compared to the other 1/2. I have always received a full slab or rack when ever I have ordered. Whether the ribs are cut or not they... More

The food was excellent. We went early around 4 PM. Walked right in. There seemed to always be a line waiting to enter later in the evening. I had a sampler. Everything on it was good.

I have been to the Las Vegas restaurant, which is why I wanted to try the one in Waikiki and I was not disappointed. I ordered the original baby back half ribs with 2 filet minions, with a baked potato and coleslaw from memory about $30 USD. The ribs were very tasty and tender, the filet minions were cooked to...
