Hilo Restaurants: Uncle Billy's, Hawaiian
Address: Hilo Bay Hotel, 87 Banyan Dr., Hilo, HI
Price range: ¢-$$
Uncle Billy's is pure Hawaiian kitsch -- right out of 1930s Hollywood -- but the thatch roofs, tinkling capiz-shell wind chimes, and Tahitian-print curtains add to the fun, as does a free nightly hula show.
The show and the ambience are the reasons to visit; the food is so-so.
Choose from mahimahi meunière, teriyaki chicken, and local specialties.
