Tony Roma's Waikiki

I have to admit.....Tony Roma's was never at the top of my FFF list, but when I was invited for a good friend's bday, I didn't hesitate. Happy Bday Anthony!!

Located at the beginning of Waikiki, I love the fact that they have their own parking lot, valet only (no fee, the valet guys work off of tips). It's really convenient, especially in Waikiki. After settling down inside, I really liked the extensive drink menu- page after page of unique, colorful and mouth-watering drinks. Everything sounded delicious! Finally settled on their Hurricane, which was essentially a blend of dark and light rum and a mix of juices. Ultimately, I wondered if it had any alcohol in it- tasted like juice. Silent killer, here we come...

We also ordered a couple of appetizers for our table- Spinach Artichoke Dip, which was super cheesy and creamy, and also the Kickin' Shrimp. The shrimp was tender and lightly fried to a golden brown and then tossed in a cream sauce which was slightly spicy. Not too hot!

For my meal, I decided on their Original Baby Back Ribs, Roma Rack, please! How could I come here and not have their famous ribs?! The menu stated that I could either order a rack of 6, 9 or 12. I went with the Roma Rack of 9, and promptly gobbled it all up in a matter of minutes. Everyone else was still working on their meals! I blame it on the fact that the ribs were SO tender and literally fell off the bones. I hardly had to tug and pull at the meat! The wet sauce on the ribs were also just right- perfectly sweet and salty. Only thing I didn't enjoy was the $1.99 side of Baked Mac and Cheese with Bacon bits. Could have done without that.

After seeing everyone else's meals that they had ordered, I highly suggest ordering what Tony Roma's is known for! Their Ribs! You won't regret it.

Service was also great. Very attentive and always at our beck and call.
