Great Hawaiian food

Pieter Vliet

Have to say tonight was disappointing. Took over 5 minutes maybe even 10 to even get water and silverware. They wasn't that busy though and have enough workers. Everything was small Kine dry. Gotta think twice about going back now... maybe after they move go try'em again

Erin Sauder

Great customer service and always broke da mouth Hawaiian food! Always worth the drive!


I’ve eaten both here and the one in town, not sure if it was an off day but the service was terrible here and the pipikala was weird. However the one in town is awesome!

When in Waipahu and a familiar rumble in my opu, my body wants some Hawaiian Food..,so I head to Highway Inn. A go to place when Ono for Na’au Pua, pipikaula, their own poke “outlet” for da Raws and friendly workers that always greet me with a smile!

Nalu Kama

Hawaiian Food at it's finest... Everytime I go I need to order different items to make a new Winna meal...

Norman Kral

Great local spot. Smack in the middle from HNL and Ko'olina.

Michael Zane

Food was awesome as always


Bomb food and nice employees i highly recommend


Trying to order takeout is a hassle. I waited 45mins on the phone then hung up & called again and my call was ended when the tone was ringing. Besides this issue, the food and everything else is great.

Femme Traveler

Very good food. A good amount for the money. Got the pork and sweet potato quesadilla. Very flavorful. Place is not fancy but it's clean. Bathroom is out in hallway and not clean. People hanging around outside were a little sketchy but didn't feel unsafe. Would go back.

Greg Dalin

I really enjoyed visiting the original location. I have been to the one at Salt multiple times and gotta say, this original just felt more at home and food was excellent. I'm not a huge fan of Hawaiian food but the squid luau was excellent along with the other dishes tried

Bennie Ann Duenas Mesa

My go to for great Hawaiian food

Basilio Nava

Ridiculously expensive for what you get. Parking is also a disaster. I do not recommend.

Karen Forsythe

our favorite spot on da island ono food


Delicious food! Such a hidden gem. A bit difficult to find but still worth the stress of finding it. Prices are affordable, food is amazing, and has very authentic Hawaiian food. Though Hawaiian food is what you should get, there is a big variety of entrées to choose from. Parking lot is shared with other shops and can tell it is aged. Interior is aged but that makes it feel very relaxing. Will go back often!

Keoni Wong

Ono Hawaiian foods, a must go! Local owned and run. Truly one of the last, old mom and pops run restaurants out and still going!

Bradley Scott

Awesome atmosphere! Waitress was absolutely amazing as well!

Creighton Chang

Good food at Highway Inn. We had ordered a take out for dinner. We got Lau Lau/Kalua Pig Combo and a Tripe Stew Combo with a Chicken Long Rice on the side. Very yummy. You don't mind paying a little more for good food. We we're so full it was worth it.

Eldon Ngo

I didn't know this place closed so early, but it was alright we took our food home to save us the tip and drinks. The service was fast and it came at a good time. I guess I'm not a hawaiian plate person, I tried hawaiian food at least 6 places and they all taste the same or under season. It's in a small an shopping area that's very run down. You will see homeless people moving along the area at night. Update. Came in for lau lau and it was tasty. the kalua pork was a bit oily

Brian Dang

The food was really good, especially the pork combo plate. Haupia shortbread was super good for desert too and our server was the nicest old lady. Would go again if I'm ever back in Oahu

r zahar

Great place for Hawaiian style plates Yum You need to try everything

Teine Samoa

OMG! I was visiting my family and my sister took us out here for dinner. Authentic Hawaiian grinds. It was good! I had the squid luau with friend rice. So ono!!! Will def return.

James Magante

We've eaten at a few good places in Oahu during our vacation, but this place by far has been the best. We've eaten here twice during this stay. The food is ridiculously good, the staff is amazing, and the food is inexpensive! If you want quality local food, Highway Inn is the place to go. Definitely hitting this place up again whenever we go back to Oahu.

Kaeo Rowland

Best Hawaiian Food.

Ululani Alip

Great local place

Alex Gines

The waitresses was no where to be found. Never check on us. But the food is always goodm

Delilah DEE Bite

Karisma Alama Mokofisi

Roxanne Medeiros

We Love the Hawaiian Foods there but it's get crowed and packed during lunch time, lol

Carl Hirata

Good food

steven perreira

Wonderful, just wish the items would get served together, I ordered 5 items and wasn't able to combine anything, unless I wanted it cold

Joyce Macpherson

Kind of pricy didn't know had to pay extra for Kailua pig Lau Lau was good

Morgun Somerset

Where do you go when you have visiting guests that want to experience traditional Hawaiian cuisine without the gimmicks of a commercial made-for-tourism luau? I selected the Highway Inn based on my previous experiences with their Kakaako location. We were not disappointed--in fact, we like this Leeward side location the best because of the abundance of free parking. (And quick access to H1).

james denney

No dollar menu here. Good place for Hawaiian food, about $18 a person. Very laid back, great service, usually a very short wait time.

david nahaku

Love this place

Melaine Holmes

The food was okay. Kalua pig needed more seasoning. Lomi salmon was the best part. The employees seem nice but they dont come back for refills or check if your meal is okay.

Wo Chi

Fresh laulau better than other Hawaiian food places

Amanda Kraker

We came here with some friends who were vacationing in Hawaii. Hubby got the kalua pork sliders and I got the laulau plate with an extra side of smoked meat. The food was pretty great especially compared to your typical drive in. They have a nice blend of local and Polynesian food to choose from. Both my daughters loved it as well. The place started getting pretty busy after we got there, so I'm glad we came early (5:30ish). It's got a nice diner atmosphere, but you can get a la carte as well. Service was timely and the servers were polite and helpful. We would definitely come here again and recommend it to others without hesitation.

Julia Kei

Hands down my favourite place for Hawaiian food. The laulau! The haupia! Everything is just so ono. And I like this place more than their location in town. Just feels homier.

Kuuipo N Hawea

It's the place for Hawaiian food. I have been coming here for 40 years.

Michael Kekua

Awesome place to go eat authentic hawaiian food, comfort food, etc. They also have a small poke (raw fish) bar a little on the pricier side but it's all fresh fish.

Deborah Pang Chew

Highway inn waipahu has ono hawaiian food. Our waitress Celia always smiling and ask us how we doing or long time no see. Their food is always the same never changes


Always "ono".. "A" must go try place! I jus got off the plane from Las Vegas & had to get my fix on lomi ahi (hmm sooo ono!), laulau, chicken long rice, kalua pig & of course my tripe stew & poi! Never miss .. I stop here before I go on any travels & I come right back to get all this onolicious food. The staff - from the counter, fish deli, cooks & wonderful servers are great .. just like the food.. soo good, soo ono, soo Aloha. This let's me know I'm back safely on my "aina", our beautiful homeland, our islands.

Quincy-James Julian

My go to place for hawaiian food fix, or when I crave lau lau, and im not in town side which I would go to youbgs fish market

Jayden Montero

Hammahz. The food is always good. And the service is excellent.


Awesome Hawaiian food. Just go in, a little to the right is a sign in spot, add your place to the list if it's packed and wait for the good food.

Dawn Cummings

A MUST-TRY while in Oahu! To be concise...the atmosphere is cozy, the food is amazing and the staff are among the friendliest you will find on the island! If you are in the mood for some authentic, Hawaiin food, slip on your flip-flops and head over to the Highway Inn! No need for dressy attire, simply bring an appetite!

Beryl Willis

Fast, courteous, and ohhh so ono!

Joyce Lamug

Good food and friendly service

Aaron Pasion

Was hammah!

Rene Reiner

Family restaurant. Welcome service. One's my favorite hi food place. Kalua pig, Lau Lau tasty. But night time many homeless around.

Jeannette Naeole

Awesome Hawaiian food.

Enzo De Marzio

Truly lived up to the reputation of being local Hawaiian food. The staff were amazing and welcomed us with open hearts. They guided us to eat what locals eat and it was phenomenal. Great place if you want to discover what Hawaiian food really is like.

Carl Flores

Extremely friendly service. Don't let the outside scare you away, the food inside is worth it

Fely Nicholson

Great local food & aloha service

Michael Gilbert

Great Hawaiian food

Marissa Myers

All kinds of great local food. Just don't sit next to the far wall if you don't want to get cold. The air conditioner is very efficient and blows down the wall.

Bernard Rombawa

The Best Hawaiian Food on the West Side. Where locals eat!

Jana Harmon

Great food big portions too


Don't let the location fool you. Excellent food and service. Definitely recommend. Only wish they had a bathroom in the restaurant. Otherwise a great place for a meal!


Good traditional Hawaiian food. I was enjoyed to eat them.

Lisa Souza


David Harraway

The only place you can get better Hawaiian food is at Grandma's house

brian g

Amazing local food served in a basic diner style space. Don't let the dinner trays fool you - they are delivering delicious food to you, just like the family has done at Highway Inn for 70 years! The pork Lau Lau and Kaulua Pig are great, and the service is fast and friendly. Many fresh poke options available too. Can't wait to go back!

John Rosa

My favorite place Hawaiian food

Tari Morales

Wish they had more local selections. Mostly hawaiian food, which is great. Expected more local breakfast and lunch item.

Clay Ellis

I've been going to this place since it was on Depot Rd in Waipahu still ono!

Rella On the radio

Great food. Fresh lomi salmon. Kalua pig wasnt too salty. Fast service

Jared Au

Beef Stew Gravy ALL OVER!

Junior Raymond

Great food and excellent service.

Chad Yoshimoto

Lau Lau was super ono!!!!

T. Kaliko

This place is one of the best local serving food restaurant on Oahu (Waipahus one). A lot of our local celebrities almost always pay a visit to this place when they come home. Servers are pretty curtious and the food is fast to your table. Only reason for the 4 star is because of the parking and the size of the place. Still worth going if you want good Hawaiian food.

Rod Carrido

Food is great! Very traditional hawaiian or asian dishes. The atmosphere is ok. It's really a local joint but if you're a foodie and like to hit spots featured on TV such as the food network, then you can check this one off your list while visiting Hawaii.

Someoneyou Dontknow


Michael Nava

Coconut flan is delicious

Russell Rutledge

This is a must-do for anyone looking for authentic hawaiian grinds (food, for the main landers). Everything is delicious! Our server, Yusuke, was very helpful in understanding what to order. We will definitely be back here!

Shane Dili

Pricey but still great food.

Byron Yoshimura

Rhonda Villanueva

Joshua Pereira

Great food great service

Abelardo Serna

Onolicious! 1st Stop every time I come back to Hawaii!!!

vernon maguire

Friendly staff & great Hawaiian food.

Jeff Pompadur

Compared to the new Kakaako Highway Inn, the old Waipahu location îs old and tired. Service is excellent, the food, not so much. The egg sandwich arrived on untoasted white bread, not the roll seen in the menu. My advice... stick to the new location and their fish tacos!

Liana Gabriela Ross

Food is amazing, staff is welcoming, so casual feels like home! My husband and I crave this place and GOTTA have the pickled onion! (which by the way, the town more poke bar, boo!) Bottom line, love this place!

Katlani Smith

Broke da mouth! The best Hawaiian food available to the public.

Phillip Nako

Classic local Hawaiian food restaurant with fish market. If you are looking for some of the best Hawaiian food in an authentic setting, this is the place. You can go wrong with any of the Hawaiian plate combos or order ala cart your favorite dishes. All of this plus local favorites makes this a place for everyone. It's a little off the beaten path, but for tourists who make it out there, it's worth the trip.

Ronald Yuen

Awesome service, great local food.

Michelle My Belle

Best pork ever! Juicy, tender, we don't even eat pork. Everything at this place was good even the stuff that looked a little weird. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous.

Primo Boy

Good food great service

jarnell haukoloa

Very disappointed with their poke bowls. They were oit of lomi salmon and pickled onion. How do you run out of lomi salmon? Miso ginger dressing was gritty. The Honolulu location is better.

Charity Baldugo

Cannot beat their Hawaiian foof

Naiya Royal


Darnell Kebo

2/13/19: Always a stop when visiting home. No complaints. Always love their haupia.

david rita

Simply the Best hawaiian food ..( SOME-ONO) .

Al Simbahon

Even the other local favorites like their Hamburger Steaks and Pork Cutlet rocks old school kine yummerz...

Robert Morales

Bought 3 hamburger steaks....Ono


Highway Inn been at this location for a number of years and this review is for this Waipahu location. Located in a small strip mall behind of the Waipahu Town.Center, there is ample parking, but the parking lot is horrible! The owner needs to repave it big time! Also, lots of riff raff handing around, it's that kind of area I guess, but came here for the food! The Hawaiian food here is awesome! I had a Laulau/pipikaula combo with Squid Luau, everything was awesome and the portions were pretty good sized! The pork laulau was. Packed full of pork, maybe even too much, if there's such a thing! The pipikaula was good, but in my opinion, Helenas pipikaula is way better. The squid luau was great too!

Kealaipaliuli Ahuna

Pretty good hawaiian. Food since Ono hawaiian food is gone

Mighty Mokiao

Some of the best hawaiian food ever

Samalaulu Evaimalo

My ohana and i enjoy this place. We eat here at least twice a week. Delicious hawaiian local food. My favorite is the fried butterfish collar. I recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Renette Koa

Delicious food and GREAT service!! Thank you Highway inn restuarant

Nate91Dawg !!!

Great place for Hawaiian and local favorites.

David Bradley

Great authentic Hawaiian food on the west side of Oahu. All the meat is moist and everything taste fresh. It's a little hard to find if you aren't looking and the parking is not abundant but the food is worth it.

Lori Ing

Food so plentiful, delicious and the service was really great today, fast and friendly! The 3 separate dishes are ala cart. 2 people meals...

Iwalani Manley

The food is to die for...friendly service and they have Ono desserts

Bobbie Jo Abraham

ono food and friendly service.

cindy luhia

Best place to eat Hawaiian food and the portions are great and add so is the staff..

Bernadette Mendiha

The food is good and tasty. Also this restaurant has great memories of the past. It is clean and relaxing. Especially the people are friendly. Thank you.

Kehau Kalauli

I enjoy certain foods they serve that I haven't quite gotten the hang of making which is the Naau luau. Everything else on their menu can be enjoyed throughout the islands!

Natashia Marquez

Customer service is outstanding staff is always polite, courteous and normally hustling around to make sure their guest has everything they need ... food although a little pricey leaves you full and satisfied ... poke Counter is convenient to order from while you wait for a table ... atmosphere is clean and cozy menu offers a great selection of hawaiian, local, and american food so there's something for everybody. My family has been going there for at least 4 generation maybe 5 so i have a soft spot for this local owned restaurant but if you're visiting for the first time or have made many memories in this establishment the staff treats everyone the same as if you are a part of the highway inn family ... I highly recommend this restaurant to visitors or any local who has never been there before.

Leinaala Bronson

Ohana, surroundings , food tastey, alittle pricey, but food ONO, yummy poke, crab and squid, and more .Service done with warmth.

The food is the real deal. So ono and authentic Hawaiian. Service is friendly and fast. Highly recommend.

Anthony Arquines

Personally, my favorite Hawaiian food spot. Love the lau lau, smoked meat, & pipikaula.

Robbie Wolfe

Get there when they open, they fill up fast! Had a great meal of pork sliders and salad but the real deal is the traditional mixed plate. The poi was so fresh! And the desserts! Nom!

Sara Gard

Great food, friendly people, and good prices. We devoured the Kalua Pork Sliders and Chicken Lau Lau. It isn't a fancy place. The parking lot and surrounding shops are in need of a facelift, but don't let that keep you away. Ono!

kehau fujita

Yummy squid luau!

Alex Marcondes

Usually is great. Very poor food today. The Kailua pig was on the money like always but the other dishes we order was very poor quality. I was disappointed

Great food. Always makes me happy eating their kalua pig, lomi salmon, poi, pipikaula, and haupia.
