Default Potluck take-out

Where are your favorite places in Honolulu to pick up catering trays for large parties? My kids often have baseball games on weekday evenings and there is no time to cook so I have to pick something up on the way to the games. Getting tired of the usual Zippy's chili, pizza, korean bbq, etc. and am looking for some ono new ideas. We have about 50 people to feed, so value is also a consideration.

Don't know if they're economical. Could try Pyramids for something different. Everybody make their own Giros. Could also get 50 hotdogs and drinks from Costco for cheap. You're going to need help with that one.
A boatload of tacos from TB? Hey, you didn't mention Texmex, Med or hotdogs.

How'bout stew and rice? Most local drive ins that also cater should have that on their catering menu. Simple kine. Beef stew, rice and mac salad. Same with beef curry or even spaghetti and meat sauce.

Actually, their chicken katsu party platter is pretty good, at least the one I ordered at the L&L near the old Stadium Park in Moiliili. Fairly inexpensive. And good as finger food.
