Big Island - Is the "new" Huli Sue's still as good as the "old" for lunch?
Planning a trip to the BI next month. Last year was our first time and we just stumbled upon Huli Sue's one day at lunch and loved it. Was planning to stop in again this time around but a quick net search shows they've become a high-end fusion-y place, at least at dinner. I gather they still do the BBQ thing at lunch.
Honestly I loved the BBQ but doubt I have any interest in making the trek from Kona for a dinner. Is lunch still the same BBQ good-ness of the old incarnation or am I best to file this as a fong memory and move on?
Never made it to Huli Sue's before this even though we'd been on the Big Island several times before. However, we really liked it and thought it was worth going for lunch if you are around Waimea. We did not get the ribs or brisket though which would be more BBQish than what we ordered. I think some of the stuff which was not available despite being on the menu was more because we were there right before New Year's Day. Have a great time on your trip!
