Great lunch spot

We got here at 11:30 before the lunch rush, my husband had the teriyaki chicken and I had the teriyaki beef plate lunch. Both were very good, I had so much food I had it for lunch the next day! I would highly recommend this place for a great plate lunch!

My wife and I had lunch at Mark's Place on Tuesday 5 May. In honor of Cinco de Mayo I ordered the daily special pork carnitas with Matt’s mojo sauce, served on Shannon’s house made torta bread ($9.50). The sandwich included lettuce, green tomato slices with some type of breaded and fried vegetable. It was accompanied by taro chips. I... More

We've enjoyed plate lunches at several spots on the islands over the years, but Mark's is a true gem. Get the special of the day and make sure you grab a piece of pie. The location is a little hard to find - in a business park - but the search is well worth it. Kick back on a picnic... More

I had the chicken katsu, and it was delicious! We also got the chicken teriyaki for my son, and he loved it as well.

We stopped by this hole in the wall place for a take out lunch and was very happy with it. It is easily found with a gps but not right off the main road. Serving size was huge and well worth every penny you spend.

You have to try it. Do not let the industrial park fool you. After all some of the best eats are where all the hard working, blue collar folks are. You get your money's worth here. Very good lunch plate. Very good food. Variety of options. Bakery is also delicious. Must go for lunch there when you're on island! Good... More

Went twice in 1 week. Ordered the korean chicken. My husband ordered the special. The servings are huge. Had enough for lunch the next day. Can't leave the place without having the butter mochi. Since it was on our way to the airport, picked up a couple of plates for the trip home. I had the quinoa salad which was... More

Locals know. Found this on TA while looking for Hawaiian restaurants. Hole in the wall place with the most friendly and efficient staff dishing up local comfort food to us tourists and locals. I had the Loco Moko while others in my party had teriyaki and ahi. Everything cooked to order with HUGE portions: enough for 2-3 meals. Desserts looked... More

This hidden spot was really good and full of locals. I had the plate lunch and wasn't disappointed. All the food is to go but they have park benches outside for you to eat at.

Got one of the specials on the board, shrimp and spaghetti ala vodka. DW got a garden salad. Salad ok. Spaghetti was dry, no flavor and only 3 shrimp. Salad with meal was just ice berg lettuce. No inside eating. Several picnic tables outside in the sun.
