    One of my favorite spots on Kauai. Poke bowls, UFOs, plate lunch, chicken & musubi combos, I always come here to eat and am always happy with my food.

    Love the combo plates. I combined their fried chicken with some spicy ahi poke. Amazing Hawaiian style street-food.

    2 words. Plate Lunch. 5-hour Pork Lau Lau is available after 9am and goes quick. Also a great selection of the best Poke on Kauai.

    One of our favorites for lunch. Family-owned deli-style place with hot and cold traditional every-day Hawaiian food for takeout. Limited seating so you might have to take food to a nearby park to eat.

    Grabbed a plate lunch on the way North thanks to Foursquare and Yelp reviews. It was outstanding. Try the pineapple chicken if they have it. Also check out the cool Ukelele store next door when done.

    Amazing Fried Chicken!!! Awesome in their bento boxes!! To snag a bento, get to Pono early on school days, since a lot of the local kids pick them up before school for lunch

    This place is fantastic especially the pokes. Sesame ahi was outstanding and so was the spicy. Super nice staff willing to walk tourists through the menu options.
