I am not sure average is warranted but we were in Molokai

We ate there recently based on some good (perhaps an overstatement) reviews. First off, no ones goes to Molokai for the food! We knew that, but the beauty of the place and the friendliness of the people more than make up for it. So after trying several other places for lunch each day we decided... read more

Inexpensive place to get a good burger. Always found the burgers properly cooked. Lots of flies in the outside eating area. Take your meal and park at a beach. For the price and food quality I give it a five star.

The locals here love this place but we thought the burgers and fries were not good. And the flies outside are terrible so grab and go if you dare.

We have eaten there several times. The food was fine. Good basic drive inn food. They did have curly fries, which we enjoyed.

I love quaint, low key Molokai and the people I know who live there but this place gets most of it's food from the Costco on Oahu. I would rather take my chances at what the grocery stores on the island have than pay twice the price for what they sell.

I'm a big fan of a good plate lunch, but this one was just average. It was pretty busy on a Sunday night, due to may other restaurants being closed. I ordered the sweet and sour spare ribs and my husband ordered the honey dip chicken. You order from the window outside and then can wait inside in the seating... More

We wanted something quick to bring back to our condo for dinner. We drove down the street and saw the drive inn and decided to give it a try. I took a gamble on the $15 prime rib and it was amazing! A healthy slab of meat, rice and macaroni salad. I was shocked at how good it was for... More
