Exactly what we needed for a quick dash from our vacation rental.  After a long day in the sun or the car or both who wants to make a 30 minute round trip down to Foodland when a 5 minute trip to the Puako General Store gets you what you need. A decent bottle of wine and a most excellent pint of Tropical Dreams ice cream. They had some tasty looking poke and nice looking papayas too but being on vacation mode solid food can wait till tomorrow. The employee who rang us up was cheerful too. Mahalo! More...

Really nice shop to grab day to day essentials and plenty of carry out foods. We went there to grab a poke bowl but they only have those on the weekends so keep that in mind if your going there to grab a bite to eat. Overall, super tiny and cute place

Ok.  If your coming from the mainland and you're not frequent to the islands you may think the prices are high.  BUT... it's a neat little store and we felt the prices, for Hawaii, were not crazy.  They have beer and wine and small bottle of booze.  They make sandwiches and salads fresh daily and have all sorts of stuff you'll need on vacation.  Every employee was nice , except one, who went out of her way to basically demonstrate we were not locals.  But ignore that.  Stop by if your at the locals beach for sunset or snorkeling.

What a delightful spot! We have visited this area many times but never checked out the community of Puako. So very worth the effort. The General Store is a great spot with basic groceries for same or better price than similar small stores in the steak resorts. Also a nice assortment of tourist goodies - AND a prominent display of reef-friendly sun lotion. More...

Whenever we go to Beach 69, we usually make a stop at the Puako General Store. They have a diverse selection of ready to eat items like sandwiches, wraps, salads and delicious poke every Friday. They also offer daily specials that are prepared by a local chef. If you are looking for a convenient one-stop-shop near the beach, this charming store has everything, as well as excellent customer service ... nice ladies with lots of aloha spirit! :-) More...

I write this review as hurricane Lane heads towards us.  The Puako General store was open, and ready for business with a smile.  Plenty of food on the shelves, Absolut vodka on sale, and two lovely ladies making the best out of a serious situation.Aside from the food reviews, just come for the Aloha.  Grab a snack and head towards the beach access.  This is a gem.

Came from out of town based on the great Poké reviews. Bought some local organic greens and microwave-ready coconut rice to go with it. Poke was awesome- very fresh! Ended up buying a lot of locally- made foods and other random things I didn't know I needed. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for! More...

Chef Noah mixes fabulous flavors together that are just scrumptious and work. I hired him for several days of catered lunches and the brisket was moist and so tasty and the Cob salad with chicken was so yummy everyone raved. Love the fact he uses local meat and vegetables. Hurray for Chef Noah. A real gem for Big Island! More...

Best poke we had on any island and we had quite a bit of poke.  Seriously, the depth of flavors was unsurpassed by anything we had anywhere during our vacation including Umeke's in Kona.  We had the chef's choice and told him that we both like spicy.  The first poke had habanero in it, had a sweet upfront taste but with a little bit of heat coming in the end giving it and nice contrast and perfect balance between sweat, salty, and spicy.  The second poke we had was a Serrano poke which was a little hotter up front but had a cool finish with the seaweed salad taking a little of the pepper's edge off.  I give both poke's extremely high marks.  We bought a couple bottles of wine and a macadamia nut tart to complete the meal.  The wine price was decent relative to other options in the area.  We ate the tart for a breakfast on another day which was perfect as we were so full from poke (we ate the leftovers for breakfast the next day and it was still delicious).  The tart was buttery and sweet and made for a scrumptious treat for the two of us to share.  We also got some pimento cheese and chips for an appetizer.  We couldn't finish it, but it too was delicious.   I can't recommend this place highly enough especially for their poke.  The ordering system is a little strange, there is no counter or designated poke place...just order it with the cashier.  I would go out of my way to stop there, but considering I stayed at the Mauna Kea (and likely will always only stay there since it is so gorgeous) it was essentially on the way to the resort.  It's a secret hidden gem, but honestly it should be a destination spot for the poke alone.

Our experience, as island residents, was using the catering service.  The proprietor of the Puako General Store, chef Noah Hester, catered our Firewise holiday party for 11 committee members.  Noah's creations worked out beautifully with our request of a tasting/hors d'oeuvre menu.  Everyone raved over the mini crabcakes and the prime rib crostini.  The desserts were equally well received, with a tie on popularity between the mini blueberry basil cupcakes and the macadamia nut bourbon tarts.  We were very satisfied with the value received: Noah did all the work himself and left our kitchen even better than when he arrived.We highly recommend working with Noah Hester and Puako Provisions & Catering.

Great little store with a variety of items needed and wanted. Wine at great prices, booze, cheese wrapped Italian meats, fresh local produce (the guacamole we made from all the produce - so good), chips, sunscreen, newspapers and some gluten free baked goods. Water selection was a little scarce, but I think we were there right before a shipment. Stop in for a little snack or beverage to have at your resort. More...

Well worth a stop if you're in the area.This general store really does have a little bit of everything, but the real find here is Wayne, who runs the place.My boyfriend and I came in search of some fresh cut pineapple after a morning of bicycling around the area.  We were sad to find that the "aloha bowls" that were pictured in another review weren't available when we visited. But Wayne came to the rescue and told us how amazing the mangoes were that day.2 mangoes, 2 cups of yogurt, and a loaf of homemade passion fruit bread- BEST BREAKFAST EVER!!!!We got plenty of napkins from Wayne and even some wet-naps to clean up after. How nice!The store itself carries alcohol, DVDs, snacks, fresh produce, and some lunch options at reasonable prices (considering that everything around here is expensive.)Go on and grab a snack for your travels and meet one of the nicest guys around.

Nice family run store in Puako.  They have a little of everything.  Fruit, beer, wine, food, ice cream, coffee, snacks, video rental, pizza, beach supplies, you name it.  Basically a perfect small general store for the Kohala coast. We used to stop by everyday when we lived down there.  If you are in the area I highly recommend supporting this store.  They are the friendliest on the coast. More...

Great little general store in Puako.  Only one actually.  They aren't slacker owners though; they carry all the essentials.  Want an ice cream sandwich?  Come here.  Need a pair of cheapy flip flops?  Come here.  Want to rent a DVD?  You got it, come here.  Very friendly staff too.  Ain't gonna find that at a 7-11.

This little store is the unofficial capitol of Puako.  All the residents of Puako stop in daily to chat with Narand and get the current news.  Narand is what makes Puako such a great community and nothing would function right without him and his store.  The shop is exactly what you would expect a beachside market to look like.  He's got all of the necessities and then some.  It's great to stop by and rent a movie or grab some snacks before heading to the beach.  You'll never meet a nicer or more helpful person than Narand.
