Stumbled on Papa Ole's by accident and glad we did. Teri Beef was excellent along with Teri Chicken and Pork platters. The larger plates with plenty of meat, rice and macaroni salad should fill anyone up at a reasonable price. One of our group ordered...More

It's not really a "four-star restaurant," but ranked against breakfast options it deserves that kind of praise. It's a simple place: Walk in, read the menu behind the counter, order, sit and wait for delivery, inside or out. I considered ordering the full "spam and...More

Probably nicer atmosphere for lunch. Service not great or friendly...can't even smile or say hi to the kids. Waited a long time for 1 regular and 1 mini order They served others who came behind us first. Very similar to eating at a food truck....More

Everything on menu is great! I especially like it when they have an occasional Hawaiian Plate Meal. One of the few plate lunch places that you can get tossed salad instead of Mac or Rice. On many plates you can substitute fries for rice. I...More
