Big Island Grill

As with many restaurants in Hawaii, Big Island Grill is located in a strip mall. Many locals eat here, so you know the food is good and affordable. Many people complain about the slow service, but that's just people running on "Hawaiian time". Fortunately, I did not experience this on my visit. SHAKAS!

The mac nut pancakes are imbedded with macadamia nuts and then topped with crushed mac nut. They are huge, bigger than the plate, and come three to an order. The pancakes are light and flluffy with just a hint of sweetness in the batter. Just add some butter and perhaps some coconut syrup and you have the perfect breakfast.

I have heard that Big Island Grill has seemed to either undergo new ownership or management and some things have changed since I visited. Service is still and issue for some people, but more importantly prices seemed to have risen fairly dramatically, $1-$2 per dish.
