Going to the Big Island next week. Will mostly be on the north Kohala coast and near Waimea, with a trip or two to Kona. Prefer to avoid the expensive hotel scene. My most recent find has been Huli Sue's barbque in Waimea. It's great with very good q, good sides and a very friendly and comfy ambiance. Also love Merriman's and the Bamboo in Hawi. What other recommendations or new places do you know about? Mahalo.
