Tried Mark's Place for the first time and I know why it is named Kauai's best plate lunch. As a Kama'aina (Hawaii resident), I have to say it's one of the best places in Hawaii to get a plate lunch!

Mark's Place is one of the best and most tasty take out spots on Kauai. They also cater and have provided the meals at many events I have attended. They offer a wide selection of local cuisine and all time favorites are sure to please. The staff is friendly and one of the hardest working on the island. Oh, so... More

Take out facility. Great plate lunch in Lihue. I recommend the beef teriyaki. You won't regret it. Chicken Katsu is good.

Mark's was recommended to us by several local people on the island. We were very pleased. The portion sizes were huge and the food was very tasty. I recommend the Combo Plate. The place is very small. It is definitely a "take the food and go back to the hotel" type of place. Good stuff!

We found Mark's Place by accident. We turned a wrong direction looking for Cosco's Gas station. We wondered - what is that place (seeing the large name on one side of the building) & then when we searched for places to eat while gassing up, Mark's place came up as a local favorite. My husband, Mark (who had just passed... More

If you were a tourist, definitely need gps to guide you to this hidden local eating place. It is located in an industrial ark with very limited parking spaces. We were lucky that someone just pulled out and we got in the parking space. When first walked in, we could feel immediately the heat inside, very uncomfortable at first. There... More

Easy to miss, it's the blue building with green picnic tables on the corner in an industrial park. Had Marc’s special plate. Beef stew (tender and good)' chicken and teriyaki beef with rice and a salad: $10.75. It was large and could have been split but as I was by myself so I ate the whole thing. They also have... More

Researched Mark's as part of our itinerary for grinds on an R&R trip. Had the Loco Moco! Large portions, great taste. Great way to start off the day.

Usually just locals lined up for the plate lunches, because visitors have to know where it is to find it. Lots of tables outside -- great choice of meals. Chicken katsu and Beef stew are favorites of ours!

Best ahi plate. Salad. Macaroni salad. Rice. Cooked to perfection. Very fresh. Good sized portions. Something like $13. Incredible. Definitely go again!
