Liko's Hawaiian Barbecue is all about ohana.

Gathering together with our family to create memories and traditions to be passed through the future generations. Good food is what really helps create these fond memories. When it comes to making great food, no shortcuts can ever be taken. You have to control the quality of everything that goes on the table.

Mary Coronel-Tan

Born on the islands, Mary Coronel was fortunate enough to have grown up in a family with these great traditions. A secret barbecue recipe has been passed down from generation to generation and Mary took it upon herself to perfect this recipe to use at her family gatherings and celebrations.


One day while preparing some food for some family and friends, Mary then used her recipe on some pork and chicken. To her delight, they were a hit with everyone. Little did she know that this was the beginning of the Liko's Hawaiian Barbecue business. With her husband Rico Tan, the couple realized that not only did they have to share this wonderful food with their ohana, but with everyone else too.


The couple started off small, just selling barbecue skewers at street festivals and catering special events. Liko's is slowly expanding their menu with the future goal of having their own quick service restaurant.
