We shared two plates for 4 people and it was more than enough. About a 15 minute walk from Waikiki. One of those "been there, done that" places. Good food and prices.

If you find my review helpful, can you please give me a helpful vote? This is shooting location of the famous TV Show hosted by Guy Fieri (Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives). I ordered the Loco Moco and a Chilli Dog. As expected, Honolulu is a very expensive place to eat and this place is no exception, although on a RELATIVE basis, you're going to get a little more value for your dollar here than you will at some other restaurants in the Waikiki area.

The Chilli dogs had a lot of spice and the Loco Moco was tasty. We even had a rainbow over the restaurant, so know we know how it got its name! One thing to note - there is no indoor seating, everything is outdoor. The parking lot is very small and outdoor seating is limited.

This modest drive-in is always mobbed at lunch and there's a reason why. The Rainbow serves up generously portioned plate lunches (meat, rice and macaroni salad or cole slaw), as well as sandwiches, at rock-bottom prices. If you want to fill up on freshly made, tasty food without emptying your wallet, this is the place to go. Be warned that parking is ALWAYS an issue here!

What a great experience. I saw this place on TV and had to check it out. Guy was totally on the mark! This place has awesome food and offers a great experience. It is on your way into Waikiki---very convenient. They have the best LocoMoco on the island. The "Plate Lunch" Hawaiian style allows you many options and you will be full!

I really wanted to like this place but we were so unhappy with the terrible service we received. Also the Loco Moco was not good, the rice was to smushy and cold and the gravey needed a bit more flavor.
