FUUD: Stanley’s Chicken Market on Ward

Share Button

There’s nothing like chicken right off the grill.

And I particularly love the local-style huli-huli chicken, which you hardly see around anymore.

While some places — like Koala Moa on Nimitz Highway — offer a variation of the trademarked chicken, nothing has really come close.

Until I tried the chicken at Stanley’s Chicken Market on Ward near Sports Authority.

I couldn’t believe that this roadside stand has been here for 16 years. The original business had been around for 65 years, selling chicken mostly wholesale. But for nearly two decades, Stanley’s has been grilling up chicken on this corner most Saturdays.

How had I not known about it this long?

A huli-huli chicken connoisseur I know invited me to have lunch with him here, at his favorite Saturday spot. (He brings his own wet wipes and cup with ice.) Here’s what we ate:

Located on Auahi Street facing Ward Warehouse, this roadside stand has been here for 16 years.

Do you know what this means to me? That I don't have to drive all the way to North Shore on a Saturday to Ray's Kiawe Chicken!!! YES! Thank you for writing about Stanley's Chicken Market!

nothing says Honolulu to me like a parking lot corner with a foozeball sized grill and an A-bomb sized smoke cloud laying down the smell of HHC. life is good in Hawaii.
