Keneke’s Grill

Reasonably priced and good food, worth a stop if you're in the area. I liked my burger and fries and my husband enjoyed his terriyaki chicken plate lunch. I can't give this place four stars because our food took a lot longer than it should have to come out, and I was a little taken aback by all the Bible verses on the walls, but that may be just because I am a heathen :)
If anyone is on this side of the island it's a must to stop and Grindz some Ono Foods ... Aloha p.s. After you order your breakfast/lunch or dinner plate don't sit down just go in the backyard you will be amazed of a Beautiful Site of our Mountains and etc..
I had a chance to dine here and camp on the property so I'll keep the two reviews in separate paragraphs. Restaurant: I was a little wierded out by all the bible scripts on the wall, but found it interesting. It helped pass the time reading them while I waited for the food, which is slow coming out when there are several orders. Food is delicious, large portions, and inexpensive. I always get the teri-beef & garlic shrimp, comes with rice & mac salad. My bf raves about their kalua pig sandwich but it's kinda small buns, even though they pile on the meat. They also sell Dave's Ice-cream from Waimanalo. Camp ground: We camped here Fri-Sun with a group of friends. The property is large. The owner usually opens it up for surf competition campers. There are two parts of the property, in front is a wide grassy area, fenced in. The back part is also grassy but has a huge fire pit. Not much shading. It's a good thing we brought our pop-up tent. Plenty of firewood, but when we were there, it was a bit damp from rain. There are also cows & chicken on the property and usually stay behind the gate/shrubs but a couple usually wander out to the camp ground. At night, be careful when walking to the bathroom. There are LARGE snails and frogs all over. Overall: My experience was awesome. There are bathrooms with electricity all night, showers, garbage bins for trash, right across from the beach, yummy & cheap breakfast-lunch-dinner 100 ft away (they close at 8p). Best of all, Keith, the owner, was super friendly...don't let his biker appearance scare you!
