Fodor's Expert Review Boots & Kimo's Homestyle Kitchen
Sometimes you wait an hour for a table here since the restaurant's fervent followers come back again and again for the banana pancakes topped with thick macadamia-nut sauce. And it's no wonder: brothers Ricky and Jesse Kiakona treat their guests like family. At lunch the signature dish is a plate of pulehu (grilled) ribs. When the operation moved from a hole in the wall to a new, larger space in 2010, the line just got longer. Happily, the food didn't change.
