Someone posted about this place on another board, I wrote this in response after having lunch there today:
I had to pick up some passover things for a couple of elderly shut-ins that live by me at the Kosher Meat Club, and continued on to have lunch at Ono Kine Grinds today.
I was expecting to get a pork dish as it is what I expected from a hawaiian place - but they had just brought out some ribs and the plate passed under my nose as it was being brought out and it smelled GOOD. The ribs were done Korean style and were called "Angus Prime Beef Ribs". Very good, slightly saltier than I would have done myself. The Kim Chee was way too hot for me - but I am not a spicy food fan. The sticky rice was very good, the (Hawaiian Salsa? Salad?) was excellent. The macaroni salad was very bland.
Very friendly people. Very small place - I think there was seating for 20 at best and that would be crowded.
I am planning on going back, I am torn between the Kalua Pork or the Yellowfin Ahi Poke. I will be trying the Lomilomi lox the next time as well. The time after that will be the smoked chicken.
Prices are very reasonable (or were for the ribs - the most expensive thing on the menu and they were $9.95),
Oh - you also can get loud hawaiian shirts there as well.
