Kauai residents frequent this big, sparsely furnished eatery near the Lihue Fire Station for hearty, local-style at breakfast and lunch. Dani's is a good place to try traditional luau cuisine without commercial luau prices. You can order Hawaiian-style laulau (pork and taro leaves wrapped in ti leaves and steamed) or kalua pig, slow roasted in an underground oven. Other island-style dishes include Japanese-prepared tonkatsu (pork cutlet) and teriyaki beef, and there's always the all-American New York steak. Omelets are whipped up with fish cake, kalua pig, or seafood; everything is served with rice. Credit cards accepted. Closed Sun. No dinner.
