    bbq pork sandwich was pretty good. The prices were great. I've only been here twice in 8 years but I might come back to try something more daring next time lol. Good place to go for a quick lunch.

    We had the loco moco and loved it! We could not stop eating the macaroni salad. They fill all their plates to the brim for an awesome price!

    Mixed Plate (teri beef, mahi mahi fish and fried chicken with 1 scoop of macaroni salad and 2 scoops of rice.) Along with the Mixed Plate lunch, I had a large Pepsi (or Coke) drink with it.

    Great Loco Moco, combination plate as well (that was enough for 3 hungry people), and a side of chili was great. Awesome local spot.

    MUST TRY: Slush float, basically it is a strawberry slush with a scoop of vanilla icecream. It's so simple, but oh so good especially on a hot day or after the beach.
  • Carrie B.
    Authentic Hawaiian roadside grub, with a meat and rice filled menu. Grab the mixed plate and a table outside for a quick and hearty meal.

    Royal Burger with a side of fries or Moco Loco are the BEST on the island. I gotta go al least 2 times when ever I'm in Waikiki.

    i've been going to rainbow drive in ever since i was a kid. it's good for family, friends, and dates. it looks kinda shady because there are often homeless people, but who cares? the food is awesom

    Great way to get a head start on your diabetes and heart issues. Loco moco was good but I prefer going up the street for Ono Seafood

    Order the mixed plate with gravy all over. Then for dessert get an apple pie and slush float. The pie is hot though! It's a one meal kind of day when you take this down!

    The food comes out way faster than you would expect so don't go far after placing your order. Loco moco, mix plate, mahi mahi plate, slush, and BBQ pork plate were all on hit.
