Ono Hawaiian Foods, thank you very much for serving some of the best Hawaiian Foods Hawaii has ever eaten over the last 50 plus years. You will be sorely missed and we wish your ohana the very best in your future endeavors.

If you’ve never been, or want to go back one more time, there’s still time. They are said to be closing in August. I recommend going early to avoid the line. It can get hot outside while you wait, though they restaurant does generously offer umbrellas for the waiting patrons outside. It was refreshing to see this type of hospitality.
