Big City Diner was conceptualized and developed by Mr. Lane Muraoka, a local boy from Kailua who attended Iolani School. Mr. Muraoka originally began in the restaurant industry as a young man working as a dishwasher for a prominent local restaurant chain and eventually opened the first Big City Diner in 1998. He continues to maintain a strong hands-on presence as President within Big City Diner, from cleaning and serving to bartending and handing out flyers—he does it all.
