    Going to a Tex-Mex establishment in Hawaii initially had us double thinking our decision but the food was great and the staff was friendly. Great for families!

    Great place with high quality food. The mahi sandwich was on point, and the others in our party got brisket and pulled pork and we all enjoyed it.

    Food was excellent and service was too. The only reason I’m not giving it 5 stars is because they serve the food on a cookie sheet in paper containers…I felt like I was being served at a school cafeteria. However, the value and the food and the service far outweighed the “presentation”. Restaurant definitely had an energetic vibe. Great place in Hawaii. Especially if you’re looking for something different.

    I had the Double Plate and the ribs and slaw were good, but I can't say the same for the brisket. A bit on the fatty side. The main problem I had with the meal was the speed with which it appeared out of the kitchen after ordering - I'd hardly put the menu down before it was slapped down in front of me (slight exaggeration...) - which can only mean one thing: this meal was not cooked fresh, nor re-heated via flames or oven, but must have been microwaved. Not good.

    Our server Michael was great. Brisket was tasty, but a tiny bit dry. Ribs were phenomenal!! Mac-n-cheese, great. Beans, tasty. Cole slaw was disappointing. Would go back.

    Was very impressed with our dinner at Tex 808 last night. The live singer was great, the food was delicious and the service was good. This has been one of the most affordable dinners we have had on Oahu. The serving size was very large, the three meat and two sides was enough to feed the both of us.

    Chowed down here two days in a row. The two meat combo is a really filling deal, got the ribs and brisket, both outstanding, plus their tater salad is kind of local style tasty. You in good hands with Brady the Barkeep and Ike the Sansei Manager. Hope they got cornbread next time!!

    Being from California where there’s not much decent BBQ, finding Tex 808 in the middle of Waikiki is crazy unbelievable!!! Andre the bartender and Ike the manager took care of me with some great cuts of baby back ribs and beef brisket. And their sides are pretty good too. Lots of big screens so Tex 808 is a cool joint to watch your fav baseball and football teams!!

    As a lover of all things bbq, I had to stop by and try the Texas bbq joint in downtown Waikiki. At first I was skeptical but this place is a homerun. Got that Texas dive bar/sports bar feel with authentic Texas bbq. Brisket was perfect!!!! Ribs were dry rubbed and smoked to perfection. Sides such as the Mac n cheese, bbq beans, and tater salad will make you wanna slap yo momma! Highly recommended

    Brisket and BBQ sauce was remarkable. I asked for country fried steak with gravy on the side. They brought it COVERED in gravy. Macaroni and cheese was not good. Cole slaw was mediocre. If you have a seafood allergy BEWARE! Everything uses the same oil.. French fries, fish, and even corn on the cob.

    Amazing food and experience. The entire staff has the right idea. Everyone was so welcoming and so professional. Food was great but had to jump on here to thank Mr. Rod who made our experience even better. Thanks for being a wonderful and professional staff member. We appreciate you so much. The employees here could literally train other customer service industries on outstanding professionalism. We can’t wait for Hawaii Kai to open.

    The food tasted okay, but it was cold. Also only got half a beer, which they changed full price for at first. Service was unfriendly and rushed. Please note that this is not a restaurant, but a fast food joint. Dress code should be casual at best.

    Our server was sweet. She checked on us constantly. The food was disappointing. Ribs were burnt, the rolls were straight out of a bag and they weren’t even warmed up. No butter and when we asked she said we don’t want that butter. That it’s disgusting. It was nothing special. The vibe was good, the location but the food was terrible. I wouldn’t recommend and won’t be back.

    Unfortunate the food was cold when was served. Which is unexplained how it was so cold and that the plates came out of the kitchen really fast as if the plates where pre-made and servers just took them out as an instant meal.
