Good golly, Miss Molly! Stepping inside Peggy Sue’s Maui is a step back in time. This 50s-style diner is the real deal for those who remember that era. Blue and pink vinyl booths line the windows, and stools face the counter where you can watch fast-order cooks work their magic.
Memorabilia cover the walls: hula-hoops, pictures of 50s movie icons, posters of vintage products. The blue and pink neon lights add a soft glow to the room and each table has a retro jukebox featuring hits from the 50s-60s. Guests can also choose a song on the larger jukebox that looks like something from the hit TV show Happy Days.
Located in the Azeka Shopping Center in Kihei, Peggy Sue’s Maui offers classic diner food like burgers, hotdogs, shakes, and malts. They use grass-fed beef from Maui Cattle Company for their burgers and Roselani Ice Cream for shakes and malts.
