Lines form as diners say goodbye to Kenny’s Restaurant

Kenny's Restaurant


It’s the last weekend for Kenny’s Restaurant in Kalihi. The restaurant is closing after nearly 50 years in business.

It was packed Friday with a line out the door.

The restaurant’s owner cited health problems as one of the reasons for his decision to close, but he’s looking for potential buyers.

People we spoke to today say they’re sad to see the place close.

“I’m going to miss their Chinese chicken salad, which was one of my favorites when I came to Kenny’s,” said customer Rose Ferreira. “It’s another landmark that’s going to be missing from the state.”

Rose said although she loves the Chinese chicken salad, her last meal at Kenny’s today was an Eggs Benedict.

The last day for the Kamehameha Shopping Center location is Sunday.

Its smaller location at Royal Hawaiian Center closes Saturday.
