Whenever out-of-state friends and relatives stop by the Islands to say hi (which, admittedly, has been longer than I would like), one of the questions they always ask is where to go for Hawaiian food. Highway Inn in Salt at Our Kaka‘ako is my go-to answer for many reasons. Along with a convenient location in one of O‘ahu’s most popular sightseeing neighborhoods, its friendly vibe and bright, casual atmosphere are a welcoming wave in for visitors who are curious about Hawaiian cuisine but may be intimidated to try it in a five-table hole-in-the-wall filled with locals.
Despite its visitor-friendly appeal, Highway Inn’s menu of traditional and fusion Hawaiian fare has made it a favorite for locals since 1947, when it opened its first location in Waipahu. Currently both locations are open for dine-in, takeout, delivery and curbside pickup, and the restaurant has made getting your fix for lau lau, squid lū‘au or beef stew even more convenient with online ordering. Plus, guests from across the island—and even across the state!—can now enjoy Highway Inn at home in a new (and wallet-friendly) way with value-priced prepackaged meals you can buy now and eat later. Interisland overnight shipping is available (for any Island neighbors missing Highway Inn eats), and meal packs can be stored in the refrigerator for up to five days, or in the freezer for up to six months. Want to order a piping-hot family meal instead? Highway Inn offers that, too—as well as a limited number of grocery essentials you can add on to your order.
