#19 Huggo’s The Big Island, HI
Picture sitting outside with a slight breeze and 80 degree temps. In front of you is the Pacific Ocean with the cruise liners coming to port. To your right are waves crashing against lava rocks. That’s what you get when you dine at Huggo’s on The Big Island. Given the setting, this place could serve *hit sandwiches and it still might make my list. Fortunately, they do not serve *hit sandwiches. What they do serve is the freshest of the fresh seafood…highlighted by tuna tartar (called poke in Hawaii) that will make you want to canoe back to this restaurant located in the heart of Kona. Huggo’s was featured on Rachel Ray’s “$40 a Day” a few years back, but please don’t hold that against this fine restaurant.
