Overrated: Seeing the words “Broke da mouth” in a restaurant menu

(No, seriously: Why is it that I only find the phrase “broke da mouth” on restaurant menus? More and more I'm hearing people use the word “ono” to describe something tasty; maybe it's an Oahu/townie thing, I don't know. Besides, every time I see the words “broke da mouth” on a menu, I don't usually take it as a surefire guarantee that something's going to be that delicious. Especially if it follows a description of, say, pizza.)
