“Nostalgic comfort food, not fancy but worth it”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

it had a been a while since we'd eaten at Likelike Drive In on Keeaumoku St. but we had time to kill before heading to the airport to pick up someone. We went early dinner time, it wasn't crowded at all. We're glad we went, a good choice but don't expect fancy. The food is traditional Hawaiian Style comfort food. Complete meals come with soup (or fruit cup) and salad, entree (with white or brown rice, fries or mashed potatoes), vegetables, dessert and a drink. Oh, don't forget the dinner roll and saltines, if you ordered soup. My wife had chopped steak and I had hamburger steak with onions and brown gravy. Hardly gourmet but good tasting nevertheless. Sandwiches, steaks, salads, chili, saimin, fried rice, plus nightly specials, all on the menu. Likelike Drive In has been around for many years, serving the same local style comfort food. Open 24/7. Breakfast served any time. Ample parking. Friendly and attentive wait staff. Cash and "plastic" accepted but no checks.

“down to earth fill you up great prices”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

I usually order the meal of the day which comes with a salad, soup, bun, beverage and dessert for about $12. The waitresses are so sweet and kind and it is like your aunties are cooking for you and don't want you to go home hungry. I always leave with a take out container. Their kalbi beef is really good. Atmosphere is old fashioned diner from the 1970's. The meals are simple comfort food. Lots of locals eat here. I have stopped in just for tea and toast in mid afternoon. No problem. No rush.
