The last time Andy Rodrigues, owner of Andy’s Sandwich and Smoothies, was featured in HONOLULU Magazine was in 1984, and not a lot has changed since then for the small shop in Manoa. “We thrive off of word of mouth,” he says. “A local guy might bring a friend from the Mainland in here, then his friend brings his family when they come to visit, and so on.” The shop has been serving up smoothies for 32 years, expanding from simple fruit favors like mango to Rodrigues’ favorite, pina colada. “Whenever I go to a restaurant, I always try their pina colada to compare the flavor to my own.” 2904 East Manoa Road, 988-6161,
