For a real taste of New York, take a ride to Yellow Cab Pizza Co. conveniently located on Dillingham Boulevard in Honolulu.

One surefire way to get a flavor-packed slice of the “Big Apple” is by ordering the eatery’s New York-style pizza, with a crust that is between thin and medium.

“Our crust is made fresh daily in the restaurant. Our pizza is known for its abundant toppings — filled all the way to the edge of the pie,” shares general manager Maly San Luis.

Yellow Cab also serves crisp salads, lip-smacking wings, perfectly prepared pasta, eye-opening espresso coffee and more.

One of the restaurant’s best sellers is New York’s Finest combination pizza, bursting with savory meats and veggies. All of the restaurant’s pizzas are available in three sizes — 10 inches, 14 inches and 18 inches. Other top sellers at the eatery are Chopped Salad and succulent Garlic Parmesan Wings.

Chicken Alfredo ($8.95)

Yellow Cab Pizza Co. offers dine-in, take-out and delivery service. Take-out and delivery can be ordered online. The eatery also welcomes phone-in orders. Party room and party/catering packages are also available.

Yellow Cab Pizza Co. is part of an international franchise that boasts branches throughout Asia and the Middle East, explains San Luis. The Honolulu location opened two years ago (January 2017) and is located near Costco Iwilei.


Although Yellow Cab Pizza Co. is rightfully praised for its mouthwatering pizza pies, the restaurant has an extensive menu including palate-pleasing pasta plates.

For example, Chicken Alfredo ($8.95) consists of sauteed tender strips of chicken and black olives tossed in a smooth and creamy made-to-order alfredo sauce. This dish is made with fresh cream and is the restaurant’s most popular noodle dish. Variations of this dish are also available as Shrimp Alfredo ($10.95) or Seafood Alfredo ($12.95). Fresh mushrooms can be added for an additional $1.

Another taste bud tantalizing menu item at Yellow Cab is Chicken Pesto ($8.95), which includes tender chicken strips and sundried tomatoes tossed in freshly made pesto sauce. This dish was recently added to the restaurant’s pasta selection and is rapidly gaining popularity among customers. The pesto sauce is made with fresh Italian basil and mushrooms can be added to the plate for an additional $1. The pasta is also available as Shrimp Pesto for $10.95.

All pasta dishes come with a choice of spaghetti or penne (tube) noodles.

For the best East Coast-style fare, make Yellow Cab Pizza Co. your next destination — the restaurant is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
