Almost everything besides macaroni is gluten free and they usually put my meal in a separate bag from the rest of my family, which is nice.

Kind and knowledgeable staff. Always willing to take extra precautions and change gloves or wipe down the line. The rice is first on the counter and furthest away from the gluten Mac salad. They use gf soy sauce!

Delicious, we’ve eaten here 10 times and my celiac spouse has never had a reaction.

They were very knowledgeable and accommodating! Only 2 items on their menu contain gluten and the person taking our order was knowledgeable. She also informed the kitchen staff and they were sure to bag our celiac’s food completely separately and had it marked as a gluten allergy. My celiac kiddo did great and loved it!

First time there…it was sooooo good! Alicia was fantastic at helping us navigate what to get and choices to sub for the macaroni salad. I got the luau pig with rice and pineapple. We were just passing through and found this place, but man I wish there was one closer to us (in Tennessee). Delicious and will definitely be back next time we are in town.

The young woman who assisted us was extremely knowledgeable and made sure we knew that the only non-GF items were the macaroni salad and the wonton noodles. She helped us through the order to make substitutions and made sure we were completely satisfied. The food was fresh, hot and delicious! I am planning my drive back to Ohio from Colorado around hitting Hawaiian Bros. during lunch or dinner time!

Most everything is gluten free, with exception of the macaroni salad and wontons on top of the salad. Substitute the macaroni salad for veggies or pineapple and you are good to go. I have eaten here several times with no issues.

This is a great option for GF!! Everything on their menu is GF except the pasta salad and chow mein noodles. I always order the huli huli chicken (sub pasta salad for pineapple) with a dole whip for dessert. Zero issues!!

I’ve been here many time and never had an issue. Most menu items are gluten free! Once, I had a piece of Mac salad in my food. Fortunately, I saw it before I ate anything. They apologized profusely, washed their hands and re-did everything. Just let them know you have celiac or an allergy, they are happy to help!

My favorite place in OKC! As of 5/3/24, the only 2 items on the menu that are NOT gluten free: chow mein noodles and the macaroni salad. Everything else is gluten free! They also have great protocols in place for allergens. I usually get the Huli Huli or the Molokai chicken with the veggies and it’s absolutely delicious! You also can’t leave without getting the dole whip - pineapple or raspberry. Or you can get a “twist” and have the best of both worlds! Definitely recommend this one!

Really love this place. I know it probably doesn't compare to actual Hawaiian BBQ but without a point of comparison, I'm pretty happy with this experience. The only thing with gluten is the macaroni salad, so it's easy to avoid. My only complaint is that the mixed veggies are a bit inconsistent and usually too wet for my tastes, but I switched to getting pineapple instead and it's my recommendation. The pineapple BBQ sauce is so good.
