We stopped for dinner on our way home. The restaurant was almost empty and everything looked a bit tired and in need of a refresh (broken ketchup dispensers for example). The food wasn't great, with my fries being really soggy and clearly had been standing for some time - I asked for fresh fries and the staff looked a little... More

McDonald's with a Hawaiian kick. Breakfast menu not only had egg, Spam & rice platter as an offering but also eggs, rice & Portugese sausage on the menu. I got the Portugese sausage - very bland - it tasted almost like kielbasa. Service what you expect from McDonald's although the drive-thru was a bit slow. Rice is basic plain rice... More

I wish I took a photo of this McD's. The place is decked out with Holiday table cloths and decorations. In addition to the festive decor they had Christmas carols playing. The atmosphere was joyful and the staff were cheerful and quick to fill the orders. If Santa ever needs extra elves he should look here! Mele Kalikimaka 🌺

This McDonald's is right on a busy street, easy to find and also easy to get in and out of, considering the traffic. Lots of parking, has a drive through. The seating area is spacious,tables are covered with plastic tablecloth. Only design flaw is the ordering counter distance to door is kinda short , so line up space is quite... More

Classic McDonald's. Cheap fast food, right on the main street/highway. My husband loves their fish sandwiches. Can't beat the price and the fish quality.

We drove through Waimea many times to see the various points of interest and attractions: Waipio Valley, Spence beach, Hapuna Beach, Hilo, Volcano National Park, etc. It was typical McDonalds fare but with a good location,
