Since opening up its brick-and-mortar establishment earlier this year, Laverne’s Hawaiian and Local Style Food has been scoring a “hole in one” in delectable dishes.

For years, Laverne’s has been satisfying customers’ appetites and cravings for Hawaiian food, local plate lunches and all-around comfort food.

Now with its casual sit-down eatery at Newtown Driving Range, diners can enjoy Laverne’s even more at either the Aiea range or its Waikele lunch wagon.

On the menu are a number of delicious entrees, including roast pork with gravy, beef stew, kalua pig cabbage and even burgers.

Kanaka Plate ($17.95)

For lunch, devour a Teri Burger served a la carte ($3.35) or with fries ($2 extra), which can be customized to your liking with addons such as cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions and bacon, for additional costs.
