TONY ROMA’S PEARLRIDGE
98-150 Kaonohi St.
By Jason Genegabus
If you can come to terms with visiting Tony Roma’s and not actually ordering ribs, happy hour at the national restaurant chain’s Aiea location is one of the best deals on the Leeward side of Oahu.
From 3 to 6 p.m. weekdays, some of the most popular appetizers on the menu here are discounted more than 50 percent off regular prices. The only catch? You have to sit at one of about 10 bar stools at the bar proper. Happy-hour drink specials, on the other hand, are available to all customers in the restaurant.
Even if you weren’t planning on sitting at the bar, once you discover the perennial Tony Roma’s favorite, the Onion Loaf ($4), is on special, you won’t want to sit anywhere else. And when you realize the Kickin’ Shrimp ($4) and Red Hot Buffalo Wings ($4) normally cost $8.99 and $9.99, respectively, you’ll end up staying put at the bar.
