“Rainbows is the place to be to have plate lunches,” said former resident Boyd Tom. “I love rainbows, it’s very good. I grew up before teenage days, my dad used to bring us here and good food, everything. I love it.”
From now until Oct. 2, Rainbow Drive-in will donate a dollar from every plate sold, to local schools of their choice in the Kapahulu, Kalihi, Pearlridge, Ewa Beach and Waipahu neighborhoods.
“I’ve been coming here since I was a little kid,” said customer Kevin Yoshioka. “My mom used to bring me here. My go-to is usually mix plate with boneless chicken, gravy all over. Those are the winners.”
