You’ve decided to stay in a rental house in Hawaii, spend time on the beach and generally enjoy yourselves, but where are you going to eat? Hawaii can be a little expensive when it comes to dining out but if like me you’re a lover of fast food you may be interested to know there’s plenty of fast food available in Hawaii.
Let’s take a look at some of the best fast food restaurants in Hawaii so you know exactly where to pick up the juiciest burger or the tastiest dish:
Waikiki Beachside Kitchen

Open 7 days a week and offering breakfast, snacks, burgers and more, the menu is a pretty good one and the food really is a good price. For example, at the time of writing, you can get a breakfast for $3. The Waikiki Beachside Kitchen only takes cash, but the food is always really well cooked and the service is very good too.
