When we lived in Hawaii, we would often drive across from Kaneohe to visit the original Roy’s Restaurant, founded by Roy Yamaguchi in Ko’Olina. These days, you can find Roy’s restaurants eight states with more than 20 locations to choose from.
Roy’s has never opened for lunch before, but recently has launched a new lunch menu currently offered at the Newport Beach, Pasadena, Baltimore and La Jolla locations, Monday through Friday beginning at 11am.
The new menu features classic Roy’s Restaurant signature plates, such as the Wagyu Beef Burger and Maui Wowie Shrimp Salad, while introducing customers to new creations like the Seared Ahi Salad, Hibachi Grilled Salmon and Kalua Pork Sandwich — my personal favorite! They are also offering my favorite Roy’s item of all time, the miso butterfish, on lettuce cups!
Each location will also include an exclusive menu, which features unique, local lunch options specially created and prepared by each chef partner.
I’m giving away a dining card worth $50. Please note that dining cards are only valid for food and does not cover tax, gratuity or tip. To enter, please leave a comment stating why you would like to win. Entries close on Friday, 26th, 2016

Jonathan Hunter says
I’d like to win because otherwise I can’t afford a place like this. Plus that whole food looking amazing thing they got going on over there.

Roy’s has been my favorite restaurant for several years. The food and service are consistently excellent. Roy’s knows how to make a special occasion truly special. I always choose to go here for my birthday. The soufflé trumps a birthday cake any day! The butterfish is my favorite entree.
Griffin Tamura says
I love Roy’s! I’m so happy they are doing lunch now. This is close enough to my office that I think I’m going to have to add it to my lunch rotation!
Chelsea Madren says
I would love to win this for my mom. We love Roy’s and would love to take her since my step-dad passed away. He loved Roy’s too!
Patricia Marquez says

Congratulations Kevin, you’ve won the dining card.
I’ve always wanted to try Roy’s! I have never been to this type of restaurant before but just looking at your photos and reading your article, the menu looks intense! There is wagyu here? I personally have never tried wagyu ever but my boyfriend was lucky to have tried wagyu beef before.
It’s our one year anniversary soon, and if I win the gift card, I’d love to be able to take him out to try this place!

I need to eat a Kalua Pork Sandwich.
Roy’s is one of my favorite restaurants. Love the miso butterfish!
Jo Nathan Bala says
I’ve been to Roy’s but I have yet to try that wagyu burger.
My friend has always wanted to go here so I would love to surprise her with this!
I love their butterfish so much! It is quite a treat and we have always had a good experience with service here! Hope we make it out again soon!

I’ve never been to Roy’s and would love to check it out!
Roy’s is one of my husband’s favorite restaurants. Would love to surprise him with a birthday dinner there!
I’d like to win because we gave some gift cards to Roy’s for Christmas last year, and both people have said that it’s one of their favorite restaurants. I’ve never been there, so I really want to see why it’s one of their favorites.
I’ve never been to Roy’s and the Kalua Pork Sandwich looks delicious!!
