    MUST TRY: Slush float, basically it is a strawberry slush with a scoop of vanilla icecream. It's so simple, but oh so good especially on a hot day or after the beach.

    Eat where the locals eat! This is no tourist trap and the food is good and reasonably priced. The best BBQ pork and Loco Moco in Waikiki in my opinion. Also, try the slush floats to cool you down.

    The mixed plate & the Loco Moco in a bowl was the perfect amount for both me & my hubby. If you’re not sure what to get, try this combo bc you’ll get to try a little of everything they’re known for :)

    A Hawaiian fast food institution. Get the fried chicken with gravy and the chili. The loco moco is solid too, get it with the egg sunny side up. The tater tots and fries left something to be desired.

    The bbq beef is really good, also the mixed plate is really good. All the sides they serve are really good as well.

    Mixed Plate (teri beef, mahi mahi fish and fried chicken with 1 scoop of macaroni salad and 2 scoops of rice.) Along with the Mixed Plate lunch, I had a large Pepsi (or Coke) drink with it.

    bbq pork sandwich was pretty good. The prices were great. I've only been here twice in 8 years but I might come back to try something more daring next time lol. Good place to go for a quick lunch.

    Ate the Loco Moco with mac&cheese and two sunny side up eggs. The plast two burger patties with rice and gravy. It is very tasty and filling. Portion was big, I was starving so ate it all. Good place

    I still dream about the Moco Loco, the gravy is so good you can eat it off a shoe. The Mac salad is spot on, you’ll be in heaven

    Try the Loco Moco at one of the only real authentic and non touristy food places in Waikiki. It's truely delicious and really inexpensive.

    Everything’s great. Might be the best loco moco in town. They sell out of their daily specials every day.

    The gravy is great. The fries with gravy was the best part but their beef is really good too. Chicken is dark meat only.

    Ate Loco Moco which is two burger patties with rice, and gravy. Added mac and cheese (bland) and two sunny side ups. Good place to eat something local

    Breakfast, lunch or dinner - it's all good. Can't go wrong with the local favorite - a Loco Moco plate. The portions are huge, so I often order it as a bowl.

    Try the Pork Cutlet with gravy - Time for plate lunch! Three big tonkatsu with brown gravy, obviously, with two scoops of rice and mac salad. (via @Foodspotting)

    Great Loco Moco, combination plate as well (that was enough for 3 hungry people), and a side of chili was great. Awesome local spot.

    Authentic Hawaiian roadside grub, with a meat and rice filled menu. Grab the mixed plate and a table outside for a quick and hearty meal.

    Royal Burger with a side of fries or Moco Loco are the BEST on the island. I gotta go al least 2 times when ever I'm in Waikiki.

    The Mixed Plate w/ fries and potato salad was amazing! But the service and line system were terrible. Would go back for the food, but I recommend phone order take out...

    Great way to get a head start on your diabetes and heart issues. Loco moco was good but I prefer going up the street for Ono Seafood

    Order the mixed plate with gravy all over. Then for dessert get an apple pie and slush float. The pie is hot though! It's a one meal kind of day when you take this down!

    The food comes out way faster than you would expect so don't go far after placing your order. Loco moco, mix plate, mahi mahi plate, slush, and BBQ pork plate were all on hit.
