A longtime local favorite, Big City Diner is excited to engage in the Hawaii Agricultural Foundation’s Restaurant Week from April 5-19. As a family owned restaurant, Big City Diner is offering a “Ribs + Wings ‘Restaurant Week’ Family Meal Deal pack,” featuring their most adored dishes. “Helping the farmers and ranchers is amazing,” said president and owner Lane Muraoka, who partners with HAF often and is excited to help them support the local restaurant industry and HAF’s K-12 agricultural education programs.
The “Family Meal Deal pack” starts with two full racks (or 24-26 bones) of Guava-BBQ Baby Back Ribs, which are coated in corporate executive chef Dennis Franks’s famous and delicious Guava-BBQ sauce. The same amazing sauce serves as the base for the Spicy BBQ Wings, and 22-24 wings are included in the pack. Big City Diner’s Guava BBQ sauce is so good that people can buy it bottled as well! The next item in the pack is two pounds of Big City Diner’s Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes. The potatoes are creamy and the kind of food that you didn’t know you needed until you’ve tried them. They are accompanied by two pounds of Maui-Gold Pineapple Cole Slaw, a refreshing addition to a flavorful meal. To top off the meal, Big City Diner includes eight pieces of their Roasted Macadamia Nut Brownie Bites in the pack. The chocolatey treats have the perfect brownie consistency and taste even better when you are supporting local!
As a landmark for Hawaii residents, Big City Diner gives back through partnering with neighboring schools and HAF, as well as other local programs. There are locations throughout Oahu, including in Kaimuki, Waipio Shopping Center, Kailua Town Center, Pearlridge East, and Windward Mall, all of which offer dine-in, delivery, takeout, and catering services. Big City Diner also has a St. Patrick’s Day special, which includes green beer! Participate in Restaurant Week by buying the “Ribs + Wings ‘Restaurant Week’ Family Meal Deal pack” from Big City Diner to share with family for $100 and by joining the Bid It to Win It for Ag Education online auction.
