Hawaii Mom Blog: Visit Hilo: Don's Grill

Visit Hilo: Don's Grill


I first heard about Don's Grill from a friend 3 years ago, and another friend told me how much he enjoyed the spaghetti there.

Whenever I perused the menu, nothing really struck me, but what finally won me over were the desserts.
Linguine Bolognese

The Linguine Bolognese (aka spaghetti) was just as my friend remembered - it was hearty and comforting.  Nothing you'd expect to find at an authentic Italian restaurant, but it was local, home-style cooking.  The meal came with mixed vegetables, garlic bread, and your choice of soup or salad.

Onion Rings

The Onion Rings were extra crispy, but lacked any flavor.

The BLT was satisfying.  My friend liked the bacon that was in it.  I appreciated how I was asked if I wanted the sandwich toasted or not. 

Mango Cheesecake

Chocolate Cream Pie

The desserts were everything I hoped for.  Simple, yet so good!

The Mango Cheesecake was my fave of the two.  I love cheesecake, and this cheesecake was rich, with just a hint of mango flavor (my friend thought the crust was really good).

The Chocolate Cream Pie was silky smooth, but I have had better pie crusts elsewhere.

A couple of people told me I need to go back to try the Mud Pie (which they were out of the night I went), so now I'm eager to try it!
