It must be because Oahu truly is the Gathering Island, as it's nicknamed, that we find such an array of cuisines. Nestled between the swaying palm trees of the country side, and the tall buildings of Waikiki lies plenty of amazing barbecue joints. Whether you're in the mood for a classic barbecue meal, or one with an Asian or Korean fusion element, you won't be lacking in options to please the palate. From the mellow east side, up to Central Oahu, and deep down in the winding roads of the city, Honolulu offers up delicious barbecue to enjoy while visiting the island.
Out on the east side you can get a truly local experience at Keneke's or Uncle Bobo's, who can also cater any event you may have with delicious BBQ. These and a few other local favorites are just that - local favorites - meaning that they're wonderful places to get a peak at the culture of the island. For bigger, more upscale barbecue eateries there is always Buzz's Steakhouse and d.k. Steakhouse in Honolulu.
What's interesting about Oahu is the fusion of Korean and Asian food with barbecue. Most of the BBQ joints on this list are Korean barbecue restaurants, serving up a combo of local, Hawaiian, Korean and other Asian foods mixed with classic barbecue elements. Nearly all of these places can be enjoyed in a very casual fashion, and are perfect for a family dinner, a casual date, or for quick food to take on the go. 10 Best has you covered with the best BBQ places island wide.
