I knew Kauai would be some place different when we arrived late on a Cinco de Mayo Friday night and couldn’t find a place to eat or drink. It was after 11pm and just as much as we were trying to get a pint to drink we wanted a place to sit and eat too. We found neither.
If you’re not staying in Lihue and immediately leave the area you’ll quickly realize that there are no late-night eats and they stop selling alcohol after 11pm.
Luckily, we found a gas station that had some snacks. Microwavable burritos, Doritos and bottled coffee never tasted so good.
