I lived in Honolulu, Hawaii for about 6 months back in the late 90's, and while there I dined on what I still consider to be some of the best food of my life. The traditional Hawaiian favorites, the seafood and South Pacific / Japanese / Korean staples etc... all incredible. But the whole time I was there (and this even happened one time while I was sitting at a luau), I kept hearing about the Flamingo Chuckwagon Dinners. Apparently, nothing was as good as the Flamingo Chuckwagon Dinners. I have no opinion on the subject of Flamingo Chuckwagon Dinners because while I was there I don't remember there even being a Flamingo Chuckwagon Dinners restaurant, nor did anyone speaking of Flamingo Chuckwagon Dinners ever bother to mention if a Flamingo Chuckwagon Dinners still existed on Oahu, or on any of the Hawaiian islands or not. But apparently Flamingo Chuckwagon Dinners was a place to go to POUND some serious / bottomless food down, and it sounds like the Flamingo Chuckwagon Dinners price was just right too (which is important on crazy expensive Hawaii!)
Anyway, today at an antique mall I was casually flipping through a stack of boring old postcards, and what did I happen to find?
I have no idea what the date of this postcard is, it's blank and unsent sans postmark, but looks to be either 60's or early 70's by my retro lovin' eye. So yeah, Flamingo Chuckwagon Dinners looks pretty good too: cool kitschy restaurant front, and fun interior buffet. If anyone has any Flamingo Chuckwagon Dinners memories they'd like to share --especially people from Hawaii-- let's hear about it! Because of course, I'm curious about Flamingo Chuckwagon Dinners!
