    Anything in the bakery section is Good. Try the Salmon burger, very tasty. The fries are crispy, which is a plus for me.

    If you have a Dole Whip rewards card, every 10th Dole Whip is free. (If you don't have a card, ask for one.)

    Way over priced! $3-$4 for 3-4 slices of Portuguese Sausage. Had to request for a side of green onions for my Saimin. From management on down, they lack aloha and knowledge of how Hawaiian food!
