Finally got a chance to sample some grindz at Tita's Grill, located across the highway from Kahuku High School. I'm out there often enough, but usually at night, and Tita's is closed by then. One of the Kahuku basketball players recommended the tuna melt, so that's what I got.
Instead of a $3 snack, it's a $7 giant mass of goodness. I don't even like the idea of cheese and tuna together, but the buttery sweet toasted sweet bread was unexpected and incredible. This little eatery isn't cheap, but students can chow down on the burgers and fries for $3-4.
Owner Junior Ah You and his family are turning this place into a landmark. Connecting with passing visitors is no problem for the former football great.
