Good local spot

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.

We went twice on our vacation. I will say, the Korean chicken tasted much better the second time. The first time, it was dry, the second time it was much more tender and fresh. They redeemed themselves. It's in a random location, in an industrial park, totally discreet, without much flair, but the food is great. I appreciate the fact... More

Dessert first ? Awesome daily specials. There's something from vegan to meat lover and everything in between. Local fresh fish specials daily. An island gem!

After you've had enough dried fruit, bland sandwiches and ginger ale on your flight it's time to head to Marks Place. It was not too far from the airport. A nice lady from car rental recommended it. Get the Marks Special. It's very tasty, a lot of food and very cheap. The stew was particularly good. Seating is outside picnic... More

This was given a high review in a book I read (the Blue bible) as locals call it. I don't see the big deal. Average food at best.

Easy five stars for this awesome local food joint! Down home Hawai’ian lunch plates, stacked full with deliciously prepared food; katsu, Korean chicken, teriyaki - no matter what you choose, it arrives well flavored and perfectly cooked and the portions are humongous! Very popular place and everything is freshly made to order so be prepared to wait a few minutes... More

When you tire of spending $100 plus on Kauai dining, head on over to Mark's where all the local people are smart enough to go. For $20 (for 2!) you'll get trays of delicious food suitable for taking to a beach (if you can wait that long to eat it) or enjoy on the outdoor picnic tables. Yum!!!

With yhe huge servings, my husband and I had the Marks Special and split it. That left enough room for a Slice of Pie just down the street! Cheap night!! They were hustling and bustling in there! Food didnt take long and they were friendly. It wasnt that hard to find.
