    That's what the table next to ours was eating! It looked like pull-apart rolls topped with lots of gooey cheese and bits of garlic. I'll have to try them next time.

    Omigosh pz, the food p0rn kills me! (Don't stop )

    One of the FEW downsides of working from home in Kaneohe is being so far away from great town-side lunch venues like Nicos. I've been there ... three times (?) and have been impressed every time. Now you too can see why.

    I know there are great places to eat on this side, too, but I usually eat lunch at home ... at my desk, often reading HT.

    It's really embarrassing to say, but after all my years on the WW side, I've never been to Boots & Kimo's. A travesty, except in my own defense I rarely have the budget to take myself and 4 kids out to eat. The lines are also a little off-putting ... but the 10 minute wait you cited doesn't seem bad at all.

    Mitch D'Olier, pres./CEO of Kaneohe Ranch, says if you get there at about 7a you beat the rush. Oops, was that out loud?

    re: Big Kahuna's ... a co-worker went to pick up Big Kahuna's a couple times (we'd all chip in) for pizza and those cheesy garlic bread things ... REALLY good. Not exactly diet fare.

    Mitch is right. And Erika, you must go there, if only for the banana pancakes with the macadamia nut sauce. Incredibly good!
    Nothing else on their menu comes close.

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    i loooveee boots & kimo's. banana pancakes with macnut sauce..yummm.

    erika, how old are the kids? i was thinking if they were young enough they could share. me and the hubby share the pancakes and whatever we order with our 5 yr old...on the other hand when i take my oldest (12) and nieces out to to eat and they all want to order t-bone steaks... i took them to denny's once and said they could order whatever they wanted ..my breakfast tab turned out to be 80.00 for 4 kids and 1 adult...i don't think i'll do that again!

    Hi Cran ...

    Well, in just over two short weeks I will have FOUR teenagers. My 12-year olds are about to have a birthday. My eldest son is 18, my daughter's 16. My daughter's usually the lightest eater, but sometimes the oldest one surprises me and doesn't eat nearly as much as the twins. They can EAT!

    I also fear the T-bone steak issue -- and with good reason!

    Those pancakes sound killer ... may have to bite the budget bullet. Or, just treat MYSELF one day.

    Goin' be hard though, with school ending soon.

    Erika, have you eaten at KJ's, in Windward City next to Genki? That's easily my favorite plate-lunch place. The food is crazy-good and the prices excellent. Good place for hungry teens, I tellya. The fried chicken plate comes with SIX huge, crispy thighs and costs just over five bucks. When you order that plate, they give you the plate with three thighs piled high, and then a little aluminum-foil packet with another three thighs wrapped up. It's insane, I tell you. I've seen people sit down and eat all six, but I've never been stupid enough to even try. I highly recommend the furikake chicken, but everything on the menu is above-average.

    An overpriced (but decent) salad bar and a few slices of salty pizza from Chuck E. Cheese in Aina Haina. Not my favorite place in the world, but if that's what our middle son wants for his 4th birthday, he's got it.

    ranch baked chicken and a bottle of Coca-Cola BlaK. What's with the capital K at the end? Some weird marketing thing?

    Pour some on a bowl of Special K cereal - see what you get.
    (Or would that be spelled "BleK"?)

    Wow, Sudoku-san, sounds great, from both food and cost perspectives.

    I've seen it many times but have not popped in. It seems to me I read other raves about the fried chicken ... perhaps in these threads? ...

    Maybe we'll go on one of those post-pay-day nites when I don't feel like cooking.

    A big honkin' salad, right here at home, as I sort through clothes to donate. Salad because I'm no longer the size I was, which is why I'm getting rid of all these clothes!

    I found a Hawaiian fast food restaurant here in the South Bay. I've never had this in Hawaii, but today I had a loco moco. I also saw they had spam musubi. I don't think that was in Hawaii when I was there. It seems to be the flagship food today, but I really don't remember eating it as a kid.

    I guess where my office is (Torrance) there is a big island population. In the Valley, there isn't much, but here there seems to be Hawaiian food on every corner.
