People with hearty appetites frequent this place. Plate lunches and other local favorites are served at rock-bottom prices. The atmosphere leaves much to be desired, but for these prices, who cares? Order at the counter and dine outside if you like. Since most everything comes in a to-go carton, there's no need to linger. Several different stick-to-your-ribs meals are available. Try the Teriyaki Beef, the Roast Pork or the Fresh Fish. If you can't make up your mind, go for the mixed plate; it's highly recommended.
Just a short cab ride from the Waikiki hotels the Rainbow Drive-In is a great way to experience fast food Hawaiian style. It's a dive and gets crowded at lunchtime, with the locals waiting out the driveway to park. The portions are huge, my favorite is the fried chicken and gravy plate. Share a plate with a friend then walk a block or so farther and grab a shave-ice for desert...
