Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives in Hawaii. Here’s where Guy Fieri dug in.


Rainbow Drive-In

Seeing as how “drive-in” is part of the show’s title, it would’ve been criminal if Fieri overlooked this longtime local fave—with its rainbow neon signage lit bright each evening, arguably the most-recognized drive-in on the island. Rainbow is also one of the oldest drive-ins on Oahu—dug in deep at the same spot just off busy Honolulu thoroughfare Kapahulu Avenue, near Waikiki, for nearly 50 years.

What did Guy eat?

Rainbow’s crew cooked up several items off the menu, all served plate lunch style. Guy feasted on Rainbow’s chili plate, shoyu chicken plate and loco moco.

Nico’s at Pier 38

When your restaurant is a stone’s throw from the ocean and right next door to the state’s largest daily fish auction, your seafood better be good. Chef/owner Nicolas “Nico” Chaize delivers—serving up unpretentious plate lunch fare with the finesse of a classically-trained French chef. Fieri first checked out the Honolulu Fish Auction in the early hours of morning, then stuck around as the fish went from the auction block straight into Nico’s kitchen.  

What did Guy eat?

Ahi belly, pan-seared opah (moonfish) and a marlin burger. That’s right—a marlin burger.
