When it comes to pau hana, there might be “no diner finer than Big City Diner,” to borrow a line from the local restaurant chain’s commercials on radio and television, but that’s only because there aren’t many other diners that actually offer happy-hour here in Honolulu.
You can’t go wrong when it comes to saving money during Big City’s weekday pau hana — from 3 to 6 p.m. at all five restaurants on Oahu (along with the Ward location, Big City operates in Waipio, Pearlridge, Kaimuki and Kailua), everything on the pupu menu is discounted by 50 percent. Additional deals are offered on other days, as well.
The only catch? You must buy two drinks, per person, during your visit. Luckily, coffee and soft drinks count toward the minimum, so don’t feel pressured to overindulge with alcohol. Still, it’s kind of tacky to even impose a rule like this at all — if the food is up to snuff, customers should already want to stay and eat long enough to easily go through more than a couple of drinks.
