We tried it out because of the King Kahuna sandwich we saw on the menu. The pork was really good, but the grilled pineapple and Maui onions made it fantastic. Try all of the sauces!

If you're in the Five Points area, make a stop at Southern Belly a priority. Even if you're not, the Midas sauce is worth the trip itself. Great food (they have a children's grilled cheese that isn't on the menu, but is available for kiddos),...More
