Like the name implies, Bob’s is a diner that feels like it was shipped directly from the Islands and placed in Gardena. The walls are lined with leather booths and T-shirts from island high schools, and of course, everyone from the kahiko to the keiki are eating local favorites like Spam musubi and steaming bowls of saimin. The food here is uncomplicated and pretty close to what you’d get in-state, like the salty kalua pork (which is made without cabbage and thus, is on the crispier side) and the silky, butterfish-stuffed laulau, both of which come on the aptly named “Hungry Hawaiian” combo plate. If you want something sweet, the macadamia nut pancakes should also be a top priority - they’re thick, fluffy, and come smothered in a butter sauce so rich it just booked a first-class flight to Honolulu.
