For more than a decade, the folks at Kona have been providing the city with some of the freshest and most imaginative dishes, featuring fresh and saltwater fish, shellfish, clams, oysters and sushi. Sure we’re landlocked in the middle of the country, but thanks to a decidedly Hawaiin vibe and flavor, the beach seems just a wee bit closer. There’s also Kona Jack’s Fish Market with new arrivals daily, so you can be all fishy at home!
This little place just off of College Ave. and 18th St. is packed every single evening, and there are many reasons for this. First off, the food — my goodness, the food — you can't go wrong here, from cube steaks and fried pork chops, to the roast beef manhattan with some greens and yams. Everything here is packed with flavor. Then there are the prices, for less than $15 — including tip —you'll leave feeling a little short of breath, and you'll be smiling about it. Finally, the people; everyone from the owners, staff, and fellow diners will treat you like you're family. This is a huge part of soul food, the community, and you won't find a better one than in Kountry Kitchen. Oh yeah, try the neck bones. I repeat. Try the neck bones.
