Went here for lunch, on the last day of my business trip to Moloka'i. Everyone said I needed to eat there and try the breaded teriyaki. When I finally made it there, I was not dissapointed! VERY ono! Thought it was funny how they posted all of the bounced checks on their "wall of shame" Moloka'i is a small island!

Since there are not a lot of places to eat in Molokai, we tried to go to as many as possible. This place didn't leave a lasting impression. The food was about average, nothing special but the service was good and the area was very clean. Portion size is about what you would expect for pricing. Not great, but not... More

The food is good, but it needs to be cleaner and the bathrooms need cleaning on a daily basis. The staff should take their jobs a bit more seriously than they do, service could be better.

On vacation on Molokai my wife and I had both a lunch and breakfast at the Drive Inn. My hamburger was so-so but the fries and shake were great. She had "great" grilled cheese and fries. I had scrambled eggs with cornbeef hash which were very good, she had toast & hashbrowns also very good. Reasonable prices. Would eat here... More

This is the oldest eating establishment on Molokai and enjoys the patronage of the locals. The food is fresh and excellent! The hamburgers are outstanding as are the breakfast sandwiches. Many complements were heard regarding the Saimin and fresh fish.

My husband and I are on our first trip to Molokai (we frequent the other Hawaiian islands). Yesterday we ate at Molokai Drive Inn. The food is OK, I had the deluxe burger and he had the Saimin combo. My burger was fine---patty was good, cooked properly and toppings were standard. My husband's saimin was just OK although he says... More

I stopped in to purchase a Chow Mein with Char Siu Pork Special for $8.95. That was very tasty. After I received my order - I decided to get another order for my family as well. I waited about 3 minutes while the Filipino cashier conversed with another Filipino customer. After writing her order on a piece of paper which... More

When my friends and I were on Molokai, we didn't really know where to eat for dinner on our first night. As the weather was great, we wished to take the food away and go on the beach to see the sunset. The Drive Inn is very pretty, tiny and people working there friendly. A couple of people were waiting... More

This is the type of roadside place we like to eat. Good Asian American food. Decent service. Went several times.

And the people who wait on you are very friendly. I felt like I had known them a long time, instead of a few minutes. BTW, the best burger I had on the island.
