Project Completed: TEX Drive In

There are a handful of restaurants on Hawaii Island that everyone knows: Ken’s (Hilo), Jackie Rey’s (Kailua-Kona) Huggo’s (Kailua-Kona), Sam Choy’s Kai Lanai (Waimea), Krua Thai Cuisine (Kailua-Kona) and TEX Drive In (Honoka’a).

Interestingly, Kona Impact has worked for all these restaurants over the years. Recently, we completed a website for TEX Drive-In.

Famous for inexpensive “ono grindz” (tasty local food), TEX Drive-In has been a landmark on the Hamakua Coast for over forty years. While the food is quite tasty, they are best known for Malasadas–a Portuguese doughnut-like treat that can be filled with chocolate, cream, and other yummy fillings.

We were fans of TEX Drive-In long before they became our clients. Without exception, every time we would drive by, we stopped for lunch, dinner or some Malasadas. It is a great place to stop as your circle the island.

Our goal with the website was to capture the essence of their location–fantastic blues and greens from the land and sea. Other features include full menus–in English and Japanese–and an interactive map.
