rainbow drive-in... has it changed?

We tried this recommended place and truly, it was the most disgusting meal I have ever had. And I happen to love this kind of food.
We shared a mixed plate comprising beef, mahi mahi, fried chicken and macaroni salad. My husband, whose iron guts will dutifully digest anything that can shovelled past his lips, could not take a second bite of the barbq beef which was definitely off. The breading on the mahi mahi was soggy, coagulated into a soggy, starchy and lumpy coating. Everything was cold, not tepid, but cold. The rice was smashed into clumps as well.
Fortunately the malasadas at Leonard's more than compensated.
For $6 we had the Mahi Mahi plate with loads of Mahi Mahi, rice and Mac Salad. It was a better meal, and more satisfying than the $150 dinner we had the night before at the W hotel. What does that say?
yeah, i think you guys went on an off day. rainbows is not the best plate lunch place, but its definitely not the worst. you can always go for the usual boneless chicken w/gravy over there. other plate lunch places to consider:
masa's, in mapunapuna
asahi grill, on ward
hk's, in moiliili
jurisons, in waikele
there are so many that i can't really remember them all.
Sunday PM.I look out window and see steel mill bellowing smoke, against a gray sky with blowing snow. Plate lunch sounds really good. I'd get that Mahi, short rib, chicken combo platter....
