Boots and Kimo is located in the heart of Kailua, on the windward side of Oahu. From the outside, the restaurant seems to be an ordinary hole in the wall joint. However, there is one key difference: usually you will see people waiting outside for a table. This small hole in the wall restaurant is very popular amongst locals and for good reason. They are famous for their macadamia nut pancakes, which are made with the creamiest, tastiest macadamia nut sauce that you will ever taste. This sauce is so well-renowned that the Betty Crocker Company actually wanted to bottle and sell it. However, Boots & Kimo, being a family owned restaurant, has continued to keep this recipe in the family, meaning that the only way that one can try this amazing sauce is to go down to Kailua and eat at Boots & Kimo.

Inside the restaurant, there are only a handful of tables, which means that there usually is a wait, especially on weekends. If you wish to avoid this, think about going during the week, in between the breakfast and lunch crowds. But don't be put off by a wait, because this restaurant is most certainly worth it. The food is delicious and the staff is very friendly. Inside, you will find sports memorabilia all over the restaurant, particularly football paraphernalia. As I said, they are famous for their macadamia nut pancakes and I encourage any new visitor to Boots & Kimo to try that first, however they do many other types of breakfast items including amazing banana pancakes, Portuguese’s sausages, and a large selection of omelets and other breakfast items.

Boots & Kimo is the quintessential hole in the wall Hawaiian restaurant. With a friendly atmosphere and delicious food, it is easy to see why people keep coming back to it. If you are spending the day in Kailua, or just happen to be in the neighborhood, then Boots & Kimo is a must!
