Big Jake's Island B-B-Q

Hit this classic joint for a quick bite after snorkeling at Two Step or exploring Pu'uhonua O Hōnaunau National Historical Park. It has a lot in common with the nearby (and popular) Da Poke Shack, but Big Jake's has its own following—and rightly so. Go for the delicious pulled pork or meaty, succulent ribs done Kansas-style and slathered in a sharp, spicy, fruity sauce (ask for it on the side if chili heat's a concern). Combo specials include coleslaw and smoky baked beans. This roadside attraction has no indoor seating, but diners can snag a seat at the picnic tables.

Big Jake's Island B-B-Q

Sharing the same roadside lot as Da Poke Shack, Big Jake's Island B-B-Q is a good choice for a quick bite if you've been down to Pu'uhonua O Hōnaunau National Historical Park or snorkeling at Two Step. No surprises here, just decent bbq offerings like ribs slathered in a rich and sweet sauce, pulled pork, and brisket. The smoky baked beans are really good. You can eat at one of the picnic tables or do as the locals do and pick up to take home.
