This place gets reviews that range from raves to scowls.
I used to love this place in the early eighties.
I used to get this plate of korean ribs asian bbq beef and bbq fish with rice for like $5
The loco moco was great too.
I was just wondering if anybody else out there had eaten at this dive and what they thought of the place.
Millions of military have been served.
Do they deliver?
Opps... that’s “Byron’s drive in”.
Honolulu? Of course, I'm sure all of us have at one time or another..............
So was it a hit or a pit?
I'll wait till the other thousands of FReepers who have dined in Honolulu chime in with their reviews before I offer mine.......
I am certain the the Big Wave truck wasn’t there when I was there, and I was there for 2 years of and on.
I can get awesome shrimp tacos here in tiny town Tx, but I cant get to loco moco.
Man, I’m jonesing!
Romy’s is great. I don’t know how to post a picture, or I would.
Hawaiian food must be a trend because Hawaiian restaurants are popping up all over the Phoenix area.
The way I remember it, it was a poor sailors delight.
They fed you good for cheap, and the food was good.
I know the place is a dive, but I have fond memory’s.
Where is Romy’s?
Romey’s is our favorite!
North Shore Oahu.
Food in Hawaii is excellent. It’s a culinary and cultural cross collateral.
The food styles are all mixed up in a good way.
To bad Obama is a product of Hawaii too.
He’s mixed up in a bad way.
I dont know how to post a picture, or I would.
Sounds like you need to go get in the Sandbox for a few mintues and youll remedy your problem. Then you’ll have no excuses. It is simple and you’ll learn in a couple of minutes.
If I ever get back there I will check it out.
Man I love those kinda places!
You ever eat at this joint?
Loves me some Loco Moco. Had never had it before until I was there last November for business. Our local folks there hooked me up from there. Very tasty. They brought in local stuff for lunch the whole time we were there. I had been to Hawaii before on vacation but never at the “real” local stuff.
I had a moose burger at the McDonalds in Fairbanks Alaska.
They had some kind of special asian sauce for the burgers too...
I cant get to loco moco.
I’ve never tried that and so I looked it up—it sounds good. I’ve found a few recipes—does this one look right?
Some recipes seem more like a plain old hamburger patty with white gravy and an egg over rice. This one sounded best. I think am going to make this.
Love them local stuff!
Mm.. Puka Dog in Poipu. But please don't ever go to Kauai.. (unless you contact me for your accommodations.)
I would like to try that!
I had moose shoulder in The rangley lakes area of maine.
I forget what town.
It was delicious!
Yes. It’s been about 2 years since we’ve been there, but the family loves it. Normally, you have to wait in a long line.
We were stationed at Pearl Sub-base years ago and found some off he road places we love. We found Romy’s after we were stationed there. We try to go back every few years. We have friends who still live there.
Anything with egg over easy on top is bound to be good!
That’s what TheMom does on top of her famous enchiladas.
Muy Criollo y Sabroso!
Anywhere near Plano?
I've heard that their loco moco is pretty good. (I usually just get the Spam and portuguese sausage breakfast).
Salute to yall from a fellow submariner.
mmmm Loco Moco at Cafe 100 in Hilo.
Since most people have no clue what it is....
It Kinda reminds me of Keller's Burgers in Dallas Lol No it doesn't have ambiance LOL Still, I love these sort of places.
Yes, I am about 35 mi from Plano
The shrimp tacos are in a little dive in Greenville Tx.
Awesome barbacoa too.
I have never been to the L&L
I will check it out!
The best times I had in Hi were hanging out with the locals.
Riding dirt bikes climbing mango trees...
The tourist stuff gets old fast.
Saved for next trip.
Back in the day, many of the bars on the beach had buffet tables with pineapple chunks, shrimp, boiled eggs, artichoke hearts, salads, etc, etc. usually for no more than a buck or two - or zero if the bartender knew you were a tipper.
Egg over enchiladas, I don’t think the mister would go for that one. He’s not even much on a tex-mex omelet.
Going to try that Loco Moco thing!
Kinda the Hawaiian ver of chicken fried steak LoL!
I remember Bobby McGees in Oahu.
You gotta love a joint like that.
I just got the bubba deal today. ☺
Pukadog is good too!
You bit a moose? Good. A moose bit my sister once.
These arent the sort of enchiladas you are thinking of.
These are more like a huge tostada.
THEMOMS KICKASS ENCHILADAS
Enchilada Sauce (pick your spice level)
Cheddar Cheese, grated
Fry hamburger meat, season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion power. Drain.
Fry corn tortillas in oil until crisp.
Place tortillas in an oven safe dish (I use glass pie plates), cover with hamburger meat. Pour enchilada sauce over hamburger meat (one enchilada uses about ½ to ¾ can). Cover with cheese.
Cook at 350 until cheese is melted.
Here is the secret right before you take the enchiladas out of the oven, fry an egg. Take enchiladas out of oven, add lettuce and tomato, then place the egg on top.
To start with use one corn tortilla per person that normally is enough.
Stayed at the Outrigger in summer of 68 on R&R. Wife and I still talk about the Burgers they served at a little Restaurant out front. She thinks it was also called the Outrigger, loooong time ago but remember they put tons of Swiss Cheese on them.
“But please don’t ever go to Kauai.. (unless you contact me for your accommodations.)”
What do you offer? Been there twice and would like to go
I was in Honolulu once. Don’t remember a damn thing.
That sounds a little bit like Huevos Rancheros. That is good! Still not sure I could get the mister on that one.
Speaking of— fry up some pork chops in a little garlic butter, then dump in some rotel and simmer for a bit— dish over some rice. Yummy and simple. Wonder how an egg would be over that? lol
