Let the name speak for itself! FAT BOY’S. I think the drive-in is called that because the food is so good you’ll definitely eat a lot and gain weight. For healthy eaters, they offer brown rice and toss salad as options. Either way, the food is good. I personally like white rice and macaroni salad, the more mayo the better. Yummm!
Fat Boy’s is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I haven’t visited the Kailua location yet but when you walk into the Waipio location the first thing you’ll notice is just how clean and neat the place is kept. They have an open kitchen so you can watch them cook and wash the dishes too!
For breakfast, I recommend their fried rice omelet plate. It comes with their special fried rice wrapped in an egg and homemade corned beef hash topped with an egg for $7.25. Or you can order their three egg omelet with your favorite meat, green onions, and cheese for $6.25.
For lunch and dinner, I recommend ordering a mixed plate that comes with two scoops of rice and either toss or macaroni salad. You can choose any two items ranging from garlic chicken, beef stew, curry, teriyaki chicken, kalua cabbage, pork chops, chili, to many more, for $7.50. If you like bentos, they have a garlic chicken bento for $3.75 and the Fat Boy’s bento that comes with garlic chicken, spam, teri beef, mahi, and a hotdog for $5.75.
If you like local kine grinds, check out Fat Boy’s!

When you visit Haleiwa Town on Oahu, Hawaii, you have to stop at Ray’s Kiawe Broiled Chicken. It is located along Kamehameha Highway next to Spagettini Restaurant. You can’t miss it as it is literally a tent and trailer parked alongside the road in the middle of Haleiwa Town. Just follow the aroma of the smoke from the rotisserie chicken cooking on the open fire. A whole chicken is $9.00, side order rice is $1.00 and soda or juice is 75 cents. Read more

I went to
February 17, 2008
During my trip to Hawai’i for the 2008 Pro Bowl. I met some friends at the Mililani Golf Club Restaurant since a former co-worker is a part owner of the restaurant. Anyway, the restaurant serves a wide range of local foods, including Filipino food and the service was great. We ordered so much different type of dishes, I really can’t remember all of it. Anyway, I had the Hawaiian Steak and Sari Sari.
Both dishes were excellent. This was the first time, I tried Sari Sari (Filipinio Soup) and it was awesome. Lots of vegetables and it was very tasty. But my favorite of all is the famous Alonzo’s Hawaiian Steak. This teriyaki steak is soooooo soft it pratically melts in your mouth. I think the cut of meat is flank but I’m not totally sure and don’t care. This is the best teriyaki steak that I ever tasted.
You can also, purchase the marinated Hawaiian Steak for home. This what I did and end up freezing some and bringing it home to Washington. For those of you, that haven’t tasted the Hawaiian Steak….this is a must if you are in the area. Here’s the address if you are interested in trying the Hawaiian Steak.

Asahi Grill on Ward Avenue in Honolulu, Hawaii. My friend told me about Asahi Grill. He said that everytime he went there he saw someone famous eating lunch so it must be good. Well, I have to believe him. Today, I saw Sumo Wrestling Star Konishiki. Anyway, I ordered the Oyaku Combo-Tonkatsu and Shirmp Tempura with a side of fried rice. Both the Oyaku and the fried rice was ono. Even my friend from Japan, agreed that the Oyaku was good. I highly recommend this place and I will probably go back again before I head back to Washington.
