What they serve:  Plate Lunches Hawaiian Style!

If you want one of the best Pork Adobo’s on the island, you need to make sure you stop here.
At first glance it looks like a hole in the wall and it may be just that. A hole in the wall with amazing pork adobo! I have never really tried anything else here, because simply it is that good.  You’ll find people suggesting other items here, and one day I”ll try those to.  But trust me on this, the first thing you should get is the Pork Adobo!  When my pork adobo is half way finished, and i get to mix the juices with the rice…that taste like heaven! It also helps that usually there are very attractive women working at Keneke’s, though Mr. Keneke is someone I would run from. Overall though he is a very nice person that always caters our work events. Sitting in the covered dining area you’ll see bible verses written everywhere. I enjoy sitting there reading the verses and talking with tourists/locals.  Mr. Keneke’s Passion about what the product he produces is certainly realized the minute you take your first bite.  Which is why this place is listed as “Bryan’s Favorite” category. And we have my good friend Steven to thank for suggesting this place to me!

Comments: It’s a hole in the wall. So if you never been here, you probably would never stop in here. Ok yeah its not very pretty out the outside. But when you take that first bite, you’ll be like “Yeah, Bryan was right!”  If you are on this side of the island or passing through make sure you stop by!  PS: Make sure you goto the bathroom somewhere else, they’re not very clean.
