Tropical Hawaiian BBQ Arroyo Grande Review

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Saturday, February 15, 2020 Under: Restaurants
Yesterday, on Valentine's Day, we decided to try out the new Hawaiian restaurant in Arroyo Grande called Tropical Hawaiian BBQ. It's located in the same shopping center as another Hawaiian place that serves coffee and food called Red Dirt Coffee House. They are not the same owners, however.

I'm happy to say that Tropical Hawaiian BBQ is exactly what I think a Hawaiian restaurant would be like. The menu includes katsu chicken, loco moco, kalbi ribs and other Hawaiian entrees. I ordered the Daily Special B which include katsu chicken, one scoop of white rice and one scoop of macaroni salad and I did not finish my meal. The portions were huge! 

The katsu chicken reminded me of the ones I would get from L & L's and that's saying a lot! We don't have an L & L's around here in SLO but this is a great alternative!

My husband ordered the Loco Moco (regular size) and that usually comes with 2 scoops of rice and a scoop of macaroni salad but since he doesn't like macaroni salad, he omitted it. This size seriously is enough to feed two regular eaters.

They slap a lot of gravy on top so if you don't want it, tell them to skip the gravy or put it in a different container.

I also liked the newness of Tropical Hawaiian BBQ. The gray countertops were sleek and the staff was eager to serve. They had balloons out in front of the restaurant when we came. 

All in all, I'm happy that we have a new Hawaiian restaurant here. I can't wait to come back and try their shrimp!
