                                                          We had an early reservation, so the restaurant wasn’t crowded. We were seated quickly and had a great and attentive server.

                                                          Being from Texas we had to try out the TEX BBQ joint and Yummmm. Some of the best brisket we’ve ever had. Live Texas country music made it that much better. Highly recommend.

                                                          Food was aweful. I couldn't finish because I was feeling sick. It's not fresh, heated leftovers. The servers and hostess were the best and can't blame them for the poor food quality. I should have listened to the other reviews.

                                                          We had a reservation but there was no need as the place was pretty big with not many customers, no idea why! Service was great, food was great, value was great ($5 margaritas during happy hour!) Only disappointment was that we didn’t try this place until our last day. Would highly recommend.

                                                          Since they moved locations, it’s gone down hill significantly. The wait staff isn’t nearly as attentive, their drinks are different, their food wasn’t nearly as good AND their in the worst location for locals. I feel like people in Waikiki aren’t looking for BBQ on vacation, but locals would bring them more consistent business if they weren’t located in Waikiki.

                                                          Although service was great, the food here was not good. The meats were dry, which is probably why they leave three bottles of sauces at the table.

                                                          After spending multiple nights eating $100 person meals we decided to try 808 and it was amazing. The food was spectacular, some of the best brisket and mashed potatoes I've ever had. You don't expect this level of BBQ in Hawaii but it was amazing.

                                                          The BBQ was good. I had the 2 meat plate with 2 sides. Ribs were good. Brisket was a little different consistency than I’m used to but it was still good. The meal came with 2 HUGE sides. Plenty of fries and Mac and Cheese. If the meat didn’t fill you up, the sides would. Good meal for the price.

                                                          Came for a change since we’d been having lots of Hawaiian while visiting. Beans are so good. Brisket and sausage as well, portions were sizable and overall everyone took good care.

                                                          We wanted to love this place but unfortunately it was so disappointing. If you’re from Texas or have had real TX BBQ, you will cry. My guy got brisket. It was inedible shoe leather. Clearly had been sitting under a heat lamp forever. Our super nice waiter got him some fresh brisket, which was better, and edible, but still it was not great. Seems like they rush the meat instead of truly slow cooking it. My Mahi salad was fresh and the Mahi was good and cooked well. The lemon vinaigrette was too sweet and tasted more of vinegar than lemon. I ended up squeezing lemon wedges on the salad and not really using the dressing. The tot nachos were pretty good and what brought us there from the menu. The pulled pork on them was also way overdone, but we tried to think of it as bacon bits. The Mac and cheese had good flavor but was too gluey and thick. It definitely was made with real cheese, but was not warm enough and maybe needed a bit more cream and butter and less flour in the roux to make it creamy not paste-like. And it was trivia night and the sound system was impossible to talk through it was so loud. Overall, overpriced mediocre at best food, but nice staff. If you’re more interested in drinking than eating it was busy and could be fun.

                                                          The place was ok. Our waiter was also the bartender and the person who ushered us to where we want to seat . The food was ok except it was not fresh, everything was heated up including the corn.

                                                          There was a lot of food, and it was very good. Service was great! Would definitely go again.

Fast, friendly service and great food at a great price. Is close to the main strip in Waikiki but didn’t have all the crowds associated.

                                                          The first three things my daughter tried to order were not available. My son’s MacN Cheese was gloopy and tasteless. The rest of the food was ok. However, our waiter was excellent and his good humour saw us through the experience!!

                                                          We booked this restaurant since it was recommended as “child friendly”. Food was so good -especially deep Fried pickles mahi mahi tacos -well everyone enjoyed their meal. But our server was awesome, food was delivered quick and price was such a good deal compared to most of Waikiki would recommend it for sure. Maybe not easily wheelchair/stroller accessible but very accommodating!!

                                                          We were seated right at our reservation time. The bar had run out of wine and IPA beer, which is unusual at 7:00 PM. I ordered a mule drink and the waiter spilled some on my dress and simply said he made a mistake. No apologies at all!! My dress was brand new and silk. We received bread to eat one hour later and food came out two hours after we were seated. The meat was kind of cold. The manager apologized and took some $ off the bill but overall, totally not worth going there AT ALL! I would stay clear of this restaurant. I don’t even know why it’s on Open Table.

                                                          Noise level was much louder than a family sports bar should. Music was blasting. No joke. We had a reservation. We had to seat ourselves. I had to grab another waiter because no one came by with 20 minutes of sitting down. We then still waited another 10-15 min to get a waiter to come and take our order.
