The legendary Rainbow Drive-In at Ewa Beach is just 20 minutes from Ko Olina Beach Villas and is considered the best place to experience a classic Hawaiian meal, the plate lunch.
When former President Barack Obama landed on his first vacation home after taking office, he famously announced, “I’m going to get a plate lunch.” The plate lunch features a protein, two scoops of rice, and a scoop of macaroni salad. It is considered a staple of the local food culture.
The Rainbow Drive-In serves up a fast, hearty, and affordable meal. Shoyu chicken, barbecue beef, or pork cutlet plates tend to be the most popular. For those who can’t decide, a mixed plate is the perfect option.
