We love Jackie Rey's in Kona but their new place in Hilo out shines the original just on decor. The restaurant is housed in an old bank with extremely high ceilings and huge windows. Beautiful pendant lights hang from the ceiling. I was told that the gorgeous antique bar was imported from Europe. 'Nuff said about the decor--I treated two friends to lunch. I had the Monday Blue Plate Special: Dad's shoyu pork, jasmine rice and bok choy. The pork was tender but a little fatty. The sauce was delicious. One friend had the fish special which she enjoyed. The other had a tasty Reuben sandwich with salad. Service was friendly and efficient. Jackie Rey's is our "go to" restaurant but we wish they would change out the menu a little more often.
