We came here for lunch after visited the Zoo. This is a local join, great price and big portion for it's price. We ordered the loco moco and the Soy sauce chicken. The loco moco was nice. but not great. I had tasted better one at Big island. But it's a great local Hawaiian food place.

So many people recommended this place that we had to try it. Stood in line for a few minutes, not too bad. Seating is outdoor, good thing it had stopped raining. Lunch was good, but not out of this world. I have had better. We both ordered the bbq beef plate.

I love going to this fantastic place to eat. If you watch the food network then you have probably seen this place on Diners, drive ins and dives. The staff here are very friendly and they are always making sure the tables and garbage is picked up. It can be a very busy place to go at times and you can't get a seat or your waiting in line to order for a bit but its well worth it.

The loco moco is outstanding. Other food we've tried hasn't been nearly as good. We'll go back for the loco moco and forget trying the rest of it.

Going out to eat you you want one of the following:
A. fast and cheap - you need food NOW (fast food and food trucks/carts)
B. friendly, decent service & food that is equal or a little better than what you can make at home (think local and chain sit down establishments)
C. Trendy - good/great food, see & be seen
D. Gourmet (Michelin stars) - high priced, great service, great food

Rainbow Drive-In (A) is Ono (Good) local. Cheap with a lot of home made food. They seemed to miss the idea of eating a rainbow of color - its all brown and white food (protein & starch). Good taste but not good for you. They are nice and box up every plate in a paperboard box. Nice touch. If your hungry, need a calorie bomb fast and cheap - come here.
