Located in the heart of Kailua Kona in the King Kamehameha Mall, Big Daddy's Pupus & Beers is the type of place that's been meant to draw in locals and visitors alike. It offers locals all the little things that make them feel like their at home, and it's those same traits that offer visitors a local experience. Although the place serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner where they welcome families, it's at evening and after dark when Big Daddy's serves up a fun dose of nightlife. The appetizer menu includes local snacks such as smoked meat and onions, edamame (soy beans), kalua pork and onions, and guava glazed chicken wings. Sesame shoyu poke, spicy tuna poke and spicy tsunami poke offer unique takes on the local favorite made of raw fish and spices. The bar has been fashioned after local style parties and backyards, with unique tables, gray tents, and a casual atmosphere. "Pupu," which is Hawaiian for appetizers, cost $6 and domestic beers are served in an 18-ounce schooner for $4, or $3 during happy hour. Imported beers are $5 or $4 at happy hour, and well drinks are $3. After dark entertainment varies, and ranges from live bands, to DJs, to free karaoke. During football season, games are played on large flat scree TVs.
