Rainbow Drive In. It's on Kapahulu, the closest non touristy area near Waikiki. I'd suggest you walk up there first. There's a few good spots including this one. Rainbow Drive In. It's a lunch spot, tons of people flock, a few researched tourists come, and in the end, it's just lunchy Hawaiian fast food. It's down home, comforting in a way, and a classic. I got the mix plate, the first thing on the menu which means, it has to be special. Real Hawaiian food is different, but this is “local food”. I'm not sure if this is the greatest, but it's awesome and it makes people happy. Working people step out of their trucks, families out of their vans, and if a place can serve this kind of mix, then it's great. I think that's one of the things I like best about hitting the same places over and over. Is it the food, or the good vibes? I think it's both with a little more weight on the latter.
