Big City Diner Restaurant Review

: There’s something for everyone at Big City Diner, which offers a menu full of local eats. For breakfast, you can’t beat the roasted macadamia nut pancakes with haupia cream sauce or Grandma's kimchi fried rice topped with eggs your way. For lunch or dinner, try the catch of the day, pan-seared and glazed with a ginger-lime chili butter sauce, or the epic loco moco, a hamburger patty served on hot rice, finished with two eggs and smothered in brown gravy and caramelized onions. A full bar keeps everyone happy.
