Behind the Name of Our Bombers
Our original Kono’s location is located in the Northshore Marketplace in the middle of charming historic Haleiwa town. Since 2002, we have become a popular stop for locals and tourist traveling across the island of Oahu.
There is a sneaky thing we did with the names of our bombers (burritos). If you are from Oahu or lived here long enough you may have already cracked our code. Yes, they are named after popular surf breaks along the North Shore. The surfing culture is rooted in our business down to the names of our award-winning bombers. We created a fun, surf-inspired atmosphere that we strive to serve quality food, service and extra aloha!
