Green River... Wea You Stay?

April 19th, 2012

Yesterday, the brother-in-law told me he's on a mission to find restaurants that still serve Green River so that he can reminisce back to the days when he used to drink it at Jolly Roger... I told him that I knew that Meg's Drive In had it and I think Sekiya's might still have it, but didn't know of any place else. So I posted the question out to Facebook and Twitter and collected a few more locales, but I wanted to throw it out to my homeys on WWE as well to see if you guys had any suggestions as to where else he can go to stir up some nostalgia.

So wot? Where can the BIL get his Green River fix?

    My niece just went someplace with Green River. I can't remember where it was but it had crushed ice in the drinks.

  2. Paco:

    I think the Heights in the Aiea Medical Center serves it. That place is ono btw!

  3. RainbowBozoWarrior:

    New Eagle Cafe on Nimitz Hwy. serves green river.

  4. Couch potato:

    Leeward drive-in

    Doesn't Pee-Wee's Drive in (near where Obama's grandmother lived. Pee-Wee's is also down makai from Kapiolani Women's and Children's Hospital, but, not after that gas station) serve Green River, too? Ah, nostalgia. Stephen King's recent time-travel/try save JFK yarn "11/22/63" has the main character eating food that was better prepared in an earlier time in our history (on account of him travelling back in time to 1958); kept making me think of how Zip Pac's USED to taste. And how a plate lunch tasted so much better on a paper plate, in a paper box.

  6. snow:

    i think likelike drive inn still has green river!

  7. pink lady:

    Either Y'Kele BBQ or Jurison's in Waikele still serves green river. I always confuse the two.

  8. 2B:

  9. zzzzzz:

    Is Pee-Wee's still open? Every time I go by, it's empty.

  10. scott:

    Diner's in Aiea has green river too.

  11. Ubermom808:

    Last time I had a Green River was at Farrell's in Windward Mall, which closed. Pee Wee Drive Inn doesn't sell Green River anymore (BTW they close around 2pm and take vacations often). I love Green Rivers! Reminds me of when my daddy (long passed) used to take us to Jolly Roger. Good times....good, good times.

  12. Takeshi:

    Sup Ed! St. Louis Drive Inn still has green river too...
