My wife and I stopped in for lunch after swimming at the beach all morning. We were pretty hungry and looking for some relatively cheap local food with good sized portions. This place did not disappoint! The food came out fast and was delicious! We...More

We're local with tons of experience eating plate lunches. We decided to spend the day at Waimanalo Beach, and instead of packing food, we chose to get something from Kanekes. Passed by the place a million times, but never have food from there. I really...More

My family and I stopped here as we passed through Waimanalo. From the outside, the restaurant does not look impressive, however, the food is excellent! Each person in my family ordered a lunch special which consisted of a choice of protein (shrimp, chicken, pork, etc.),...More

Keneke's is a great little local spot to try popular plate lunches of Hawaii. Food is good and fresh and reasonably priced. Doesn't look like much but everything we ordered was delicious!

We had eggs and bacon with fries. The food was homemade and the people were welcoming. The place looks average, however, it was a good choice for us on our way to Sunset Beach.

Very good Hawaiian BBQ chicken and mac salad. The place doesn't look like much but some of the best food comes out of hole in the wall places. The food is inexpensive and good!

Driving along the coast looking for a local place to get lunch. We happened upon Kenekes. A wonderful local place with a large menu. You could say the food is simple, but it's just simply good. You'd spend under $10 and you'd be full. Fish,...More

My favorite plate lunch on the Windward side. Full plate lunch menu. Very good mac. Can order your choice of two (rice, mac,fried), which is great for folks that are riced out. No vegan choices and the veggie burger is over priced. Breakfast great for...More

Not much more than a big red & white shack on the side of the road on the Kalanianaoloe Hwy, but a MUST STOP when going thru the area. Keneke's has been around forewver it seems like, and is a local (even island wide) institution....More
