    Pizza Bob's in Haleiwa...best buffalo wings to date. You can barely hold them they fall right apart.

    Other stuff is good there too...

    Any other suggestions?

    And how about good Italian on Oahu?
    New Kapahulu Chop Suey - Inexpensive but good Chinese food. Dingy atmosphere and surly waitresses. Located at 730 Kapahulu. Large servings & good value for your $.

    Thumbs down on Killer Taco's in Haleiwa. I've always wanted to try it but noticed there were never very many cars there. Finally, Crab Lover and I tried it. Icky.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    Specifically... lack of salt for everything. Salsa was bland (needed salt and maybe some lime or cilantro or something) it was pretty much pureed tomatoes. Ground beef was tasteless and the chicken had a weird seasoning I just couldn't place and really didn't care for, but still no salt. I'll stick with Moe's and Maui Taco.

    If you want Mexican on the North Shore, I'd stick with Cholo's in the North Shore Marketplace. Their Fresh Fish Tacos are highly recommended!

    Kaanapali Mixed Plate and Aloha Mixed Plate (Lahaina) are both great local-style places.

    The Hula Grill in the Whalers Village is also a nice place to eat, and I've enjoyed Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. in Lahaina as well.

    BJ's (Lahaina) is not to be missed if you're looking for some pizza/pasta at affordable prices.

    Hope that helps get you started...

    The Cheescake Factory in Waikiki.

    Buffalo Wings....pretty good. Come with extra buffalo sauce, so that's a plus. Also has bleu cheese dressing that is too chunky, so that's a minus. Celery.
