The food here was fantastic! I had the island style tacos, veggie style. Everything was done perfectly, and the flavor combination was really unique and so tasty. I actually tried to recreate this dish once I returned home. The Pineapple POW (non-alcoholic version) was so smooth and creamy. What a fun dish!

After a delightful scenic drive from Kailua to Hilo, we walked about the town visiting many of the little shops along the way and ended our day in Hilo with a delicious lunch at Pineapple's.
We ordered the pineapple beer and pineapple cider - both served cold and tasted fantastic, especially on a hot sunny day.
Fish and chips - plentiful, hot, delicious, served with a tasty coleslaw.
Curry Chicken Wrap - huge wrap packed with curry chicken, served with yam fries.
All meals that passed by us heading to other tables looked great.
After our lunch we drove to visit the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens (see review). The walk was good for us after the scrumptious lunch we experienced at Pineapples.
Next time we are in Kona we will definitely make the drive to Hilo to have another meal at Pineapples!!

This place was amazing! My husband and I both had the onion soup which was delicious. I had the lettuce wraps with tofu and my husband had the bbq Kaluah pork sandwich. We both agreed the sweet potato fries were the best we ever had. So good! Must go here if you are in Hilo!

We've been to pineapples several times now and love the location just up the road from the Farmers' Market. The open air dining takes advantage of the great weather and breezes, the food and service are good, and they have great local food and beverages! Try to avoid it on days when a cruise ship docks in Hilo or have a reservation because it gets packed!
