Zippy's is the local restaurant chain that is loved by the locals. I have only had their food a few times - a couple times catered - greasy and cold - and would not eat here by choice. Their Napoleon bakery is better

This is my favorite diner in Hawaii. The food is consistent. The portions are hearty and the service is good. The menu also includes some Hawaiian comfort food and international favorites.
