Humuhumu’s description

The restaurant now at this site is called "China Buffet." There is an Aloha Motel located just up Monroe at 2729, but I don't know if there was ever a relationship between it and this restaurant.

I was told that Sam Mercado owned the Aloha. If anyone is in Rochester, maybe you could look in the archives and see the business license for the Aloha. His children are Son Marvin, daughter Susan Mercado Clark and Margarita "Tina" Mercado Reed. I met them in California in 1971. I would like to say-hehello.

Does anyone know the names of the owner of the Aloha Restaurant during the late 60s early 70s.
I lived in Rochester as a boy and my dad worked there during that time. They helped us out a lot and I wanted to thank them, or at least their children for their kindness.

The Aloha restaurant and the motel were owned by the same owner. The original Tiki Aloha motel,next to the modern one was demolished in early 80's and replaced with an American restaurant(Friendlys or Perkins?)The Aloha food was actually americanized chinese food,and some dishes had some pineapple and sold as "polynesian food".They had awsome tropical drinks that no one was able to make or copy...the recipe was a secret. The mix drinks were so good,because it took a lot of ingredients to make and it was very time consuming,thus,they had to be pre-made and pre-mixed the day before,as these fanststic drinks could not be made instantly per customer order. The Aloha had a live band on weekends,playing Hawaiian songs...Tiny bubble in the wine.....more to come. Stay tuned.
