Boots & Kimo's Homestyle Kitchen
119 Hekili St, Kailua, HI 96734
So yeah, they're really VERY busy and they know it and they don't do ANYTHING to hide it from ya. And that's how we like it-- right?
You WILL be waiting for quite a while unless all the stars and cosmic forces align and you get like Las Vegas jackpot kind of lucky.
You WILL be waiting outside on the concrete with all the other " I rolled the dice and came up short" souls.
When you do get inside...
You will be shown to a table that is precariously close to the next table-- but you will take it 'cause the other souls sitting on the sidewalk, and also having just done your own "time" out there on the hard concrete, is a very recent memory and well, you know it just doesn't take much to be grateful for any sort of seat after that.
You will probably get service that feels along the lines of... "Are you ready to order? How about now? Now?"... and really guys you've had all that time on the sidewalk to consider your options and so, yeah, geesh you WILL be expected to have your menu choices in order.
Still wanna go?...
Good, 'cause it's really truly worth it if you order the right things. Skip the lunchy items, Boots and Kimos is open for breakfast and lunch and the menu reflects that. Go for the macadamia nut pancakes and pretty much any one of their omelets. Our favorites are the paniolo omelete with swiss cheese and portugese sausage, the seafood omelet-- hey, that's different, and the corned beef and onion omelet.
Really, prepare yourself for the downsides, and be sure to order the macadamia nut pancakes and it'll be easy to see why the local's have been going here for years and years and years...
Actually, I was ready to work here right outta high school, which let's face it was a long long time ago, and let's also face the fact that I was hoping they'd be willing to negotiate payment in the form of mac nut pancakes, but then alas I was accepted to a mainland college and so now I wait in the lines like everyone else hoping for a bit of &quot;home&quot;when I'm visiting Kailua town.
I'll save a seat for ya on the concrete.
