Our Team's Fav Local Food Spots
Whether you live in Hawai'i or plan on visiting, here's our favorite local to O'ahu food places we recommend visiting while you are on island!
3. Drive Thru Joe Coffee
Recommended by Angela, Customer Service Specialist
A local spot that has brought joy to the military families and community on Oahu is Drive Thru Joe! I wanted to find a local coffee/breakfast spot that I could fit into my morning routine and feel 10000% good about the quality of coffee/breakfast and who I am supporting. Drive Thru Joe Coffee was founded by Joe Real, USAF veteran in 2017. You can find him and his pup (Lieutenant Beans) traveling to each of his 6 locations on the Island Military installations and all of their personnel is 100% veteran operated as well. You can usually find me and my husband ordering a striker (red bull mango lemonade) in the afternoon or my personal favorites the WTF (what the fluff) WarMachine cold brew! As a mom on-the-go I appreciate the fast drive through aspect but really I enjoy watching them personally craft these quality drinks and sandwiches in person at the window. (I highly recommend grabbing up some unique stickers too for the memories!)
7. Waialua's Lunch Wagon - Waialua, Hawai'i
Recommended by Laura, Creative Director
My all time favorite local spot to grab food on Oahu has to be Waialua's Lunch Wagon! It is right across from a park and on a beautiful day, it is such a treat to grab this delish food and eat outside! While the truck sometimes has uncertain hours (definitely follow their IG!) and sometime sells out quick for the day, their Ahi Katsu and Poke plate is the best you'll ever have guaranteed! Their fish is fresh caught daily, portions are large, and each plate is truly a meal to remember. Some tips - be sure to bring (1) cash since they are cash only and (2) a drink since they only sell the food.
