The food was just fine. That's about all I can really rate it. The place was a very casual, hard top table atmosphere. I thought it was a little overprice for the quality. Not bad, but certainly not what I'd consider a good dinner spot on a date night. The Pacific Bar ambiance they advertise is pretty lacking, and the place feels more like a fast casual spot, but with higher prices.
For example, I got a steak burrito which came wrapped in aluminum foils (like a Chipotle or Moe's), but it was priced quite a bit higher than those places. I did enjoy having Longboard Beer on draft. Overall, it was just fine. Not good, not bad, just okay.
Great food, BIG portions....will definitely come here again.
Food was ok, but not great. Short handed on help for the group meant service was compromised. I like the menu and its variety. The draft selection was limited, but decent pics on it.
Although we had a confirmed reservation, Big Kahuna refused to seat us because they said they don’t accept Open Table reservations made on the same day. They did not apologize, and objected when we stood in the entry trying to figure out where we should go. Don’t go there, or at least don’t count on a confirmed reservation there.
The food was great, easy to get a table. The music was just a bit loud and kind of inappropriate for a restaurant (a lot of hip hop). Overall, I would still go back!! 👍🏼
Great variety of food and reasonably priced. Service was awesome.
Convenient to hotel. Good variety of food. The food we purchased was very good with very generous portions.
We were in town for a busy market when we know that most restaurants downtown require a reservation. We had an 8:45 reservation and got there about 10 minutes late due to poor directions. When we arrived, the place was empty and we were told that the kitchen was closed! It was a Friday!!!
The only good news is that the manager referred us to Gibneys in the neighborhood where we had amazing burgers and wonderful service!
We booked Big Kahuna for dinner before the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on New Year's Eve. We had a group of 10 that included kids 9-14 years of age. Even though there was no kids menu, the selection of tacos, burgers and appetizers gave the kids plenty to choose from (and they even accommodated a picky eater by making a cheese quesadilla!) . The tacos blended traditional taco fillings with unexpected creating a refreshing taste. Great beer selection, too. The service was excellent! We had planned to walk from the restaurant to the Georgia Dome (about 20 minutes by foot in 40 degree temps) but to our surprise the restaurant was offering a free shuttle to the stadium! BONUS!! We will definitely visit again.
My experience at Big Kahuna was great! The food was great and the service was great! I will be visiting again when I'm in Atlanta.
We were in Atlanta for a seminar and stayed through the weekend. It happened to be the same weekend as the SEC Championship game. We found this unique restaurant nearby. It was supposed to be closed all day for a private party but the manager graciously left it open. There was nobody sitting inside as the weather was gorgeous outside. It took a while to get our menus and drinks but we were not in any hurry. The staff was very friendly. The food was delicious and the manager made us his unique drink. We just had a fabulous time and will visit again.
Overall we had a nice lunch at Big Kahuna. Good menu and the wait staff essentially kept our beverages full until... One note...if you decide you want the "grilled" cod fish tacos, they apparently don't exist...despite what the menu says. That is what I ordered but was brought fried fish tacos. When I inquired about it, our waitress said they don't have that and that all their fish was lightly battered...huh? Anyway, I said I did not want fried food and asked for her to change it our for the grilled chicken. After sent the fried fish back, we all felt our service started to wane...
In the end the food was good but service very average...won't go back as it is out of the way and I don't consider it to have been an exceptional experience.
Its a cool place to go watch sports....food is just your average bar food...not a big deal...prices are ok for the food u get..staff was eating at the table next to ours while on break..
Had a wonderful experience at Big Kahuna. Great menu with delicious food and very reasonably priced drinks. Kudos to the wait staff. Very attentive and friendly and even made an item for us that wasn't on the lunch menu. My only complaint would be the "please seat yourself" - had to wait a bit both times we were there for a waitress to notice we had sat down. Would be better if they showed you to a table.
Looking for a great eat in Midtown (financial district) that's not outrageously priced??? Big Kahuna is on the street level of the Garden Suites at the Suntrust building (Peachtree Center). Fresh tacos with a wonderful California style. The Hummamole is a must try! It's hummus and guac (big surprise) and it's amazing. It's great for a business lunch or a casual lunch with friends. Can't wait to go back.
