    It’s a cute place with a back area full of fairy lights, complete with wooden tables and a skylight window. $10.75 for an ahi tuna poke bowl. They have beer and wine on tap! Read more

    Tuna, w/ avocado, edamame, krispies, and spicy sauce is really good. It'll cost you around $15.50 but with the treat. Line moves very fast. Reminded me of Shake Shack efficiency.

    The poke is good of its sort, more fish than salad, and the proprietary hot dogs come in several permutations, of which the Chicago and banh mi dogs are our favorites. Read more

    The Slaw Dog ($4.50) features an all-beef frank, cooked until the skin is blistered, smothered in cool, creamy, and well-carawayed coleslaw, with enough mustard lying in wait for extra zing. Read more

    Delicious and spacious! Bahn mi burger was tasty, not knockout but yummy. Poke was a great deal and very delicious and filling for the price. Can't wait to come back to try the other stuff!

    Yum! The Poké bowl was amazing. I had half and half octopus and Spice Ahi. It had just there right amount of sauce. The toppings were perfect! Really nice people too. Best Poké outside Hawai'i!

    If poke is a trend then I hope it invaded everywhere. These guys are good. Personal touch to every order. Definitely get the bowls. Hot dogs weren't that special not compare to Crift Dogs.

    Really fresh tuna and salmon. The spicy sauce is more like a mayo and is not too hot. About $15 with 2-3 toppings but will fill you up for hours.

    The owners actually got the name Sons of Thunder from the Bible, which is pretty cool. The spicy ahi tuna poke bowl is really good!

    Super tasty fish tacos! Been here for the poke bowls, which are great, but now the bahn mi dog is our favorite thing 🌭🙌🏼

    Fresh poke good quality and taste. I wish they would let you customize the toppings though.

    Love this place. The wait during lunch is insane, but I guess that means it's good, right? I wish they had soy sauce, ginger and chop sticks available at the condiments station.

    Little bit more expensive than other poke place, but very good nonetheless! They offer a choice of cauliflower rice. And have very good soft serve ice cream for dessert!!!

    The poke is amazing here but don't touch any of their other things. The chili cheese dog is absolutely disgusting - the hotdog was dry and the chili taken from a can topped with cheez whiz!

    I ordered the salmon poke, spicy. It was flavorless, save for some mayo and spice. I might as well have been eating a block of fish with spicy mayo and a side of steamed rice from chinese takeout.

    Get poke here before this place gets overthrown by the fad hunters. The 1/2 1/2 of ahi tuna and salmon is awesome. Get extra avocado.
  • Gianna N.
    The seaweed salad on their poke has very intense flavor- I felt it took over the bowl. Watch out for that. Also crispy toppings are extra $$$

    Poke bowls go chipotle...except not really because the ordering is done away from the prep and customization is limited. The spicy tuna poke bowl is indeed the bomb tho

    Not only is this place high quality but the restaurant is beautifully done with big room in the back to enjoy. I eat spicy and their chili flakes are no joke.

    Poke and more poke! I go for the salmon with white rice. I also dig their ice creams.

    Great staff! I used to come here 2-3 times a week and I would have given it 5 stars but the quality of fish is not the same as it used to be.

    Spicy Ahi Tuna Poke with avocado and krispies over cauliflower rice. Delicious!

    The service is friendly and the poke is good but the portions are a bit small. What looks like a huge cup of poke and rice is mainly just rice. And the $1 side of nori was literally a spoons-worth...

    Pokiworks might edge out ahead in a head to head taste test but this place is still delicious and their seating space in the back is awesome.

    Poke is solid. Consider extra sauce, spicy or otherwise and also load up with extreme like avocado and crunchies!

    I go with the half tuna and half salmon spicy. Pretty much just adds spicy mayo on top

    Not the best but the poke is decent. Options are limited. The ingredients are fresh and there's ample seating. The poke is worth a try, skip the hotdogs.

    Pretty good poke but the toppings are not unlimited like other places so it can get to be expensive. Also the selection of toppings is mediocre at best

    Don't go between 12-2 - it's a madhouse. Do get the poké bowl half salmon, half tuna spicy though!

    Quick Service. Fresh affordable Japanese Chirashi. I had half salmon half Tako octopus. $10.75 A new choice of fast food in the City. Wish the serving is a bit bigger, perhaps more rice/ veggie.
