Waikikie Hawaiian BBQ

If playful pineapples dotting the “I” in the outdoor sign or the slushee machine inside aren’t enough indicators, the staff at this beloved Briarcliff Road spot make it clear how much it cares about its smallest guests. After minors place their order for fried shrimp or chicken teriyaki at the counter, they’re greeted with a high-five. And if the crew is really in a good mood (which is basically all the time), they’ll hand out crayons or even a stuffed animal. It sorta feels like granny’s house, which explains why so many families eat here. Adults will love the special attention given to the children almost as much as they do the tender barbecue beef piled alongside scoops of rice and macaroni salad.
