If you are in the area of Monterey part, the food here is great. The best part about it is, after you are done eating, you have to get a shaved ice on the way out. They have about 25-50 different flavors to chose from. I am sure it is less than 50, but the board is so huge, it seems like 100. But anyways, their kalua pork is to die for. Whether you have it in a bowl or plate lunch, you have to try it. If you love chicken, try the sesame chicken, it's also too good. If you are in for a drink i suggest a Hawaiian sun.
The only downfall is that it is quite a drive, although they did expand to the OC area, but the parking is hard. If it is busy there, you have to park on the street. But go, it's worth a visit. It's even worth the drive.
