We stop here every trip at least 2 times/week. Great plate lunches and we often split one and still feel full! Service is quick but often times, the line can be long so be prepared to wait and take advantage of the wait time by getting to know people in line with you! I've often gotten the best tips on...

I was happily surprised that the prices here were relatively competitive with other groceries in the area. They have a fairly good selection of the key items you need. It's not mainland prices, but what is?!

Based on other reviews we stopped here instead.of going to several other places in the immediate area. Agree with the reviewer that said don't waste your time. The food isn't awful but there are SO MANY great places nearby. We ended up enjoying leftovers from Pizzeta more than the immediate food from Sueoka.

If you want the "plate lunch" experience -- loco moco -- definitely stop here. Husband loved his. I ate at the food truck across the street run by a lovely couple, and had an outstanding fish sandwich.

We stayed right down the street and this was a very convenient place to pick up anything we needed on the way home from our adventures of the day. Sometimes they have really good home made Banana Bread. They also have a coffee station down back and some snacks up front if you want to pick something up. Everyone there... More

The plate lunch is really disappointing. Everything is fried or boiled. We did not enjoy it Don't waste your money

Cheeseburgers and onion rings or Teri Beefburger, Beef stew plate, Tripe stew, various lunch plates all goooooood!!!!! Great place to stop by to order on the way to the beach. You can call in the order and not have to wait as long, but it's worth the wait.

When you see the lines of locals waiting for their lunch, you KNOW this is a great place to eat! We go to the Snack Shop every time we are on Kauai--even several times each trip. Instead of eating at the expensive restaurants at the hotels, we bring back lunch and eat it around the pool. Reasonable prices and good... More

This is a small town, but this store was the anchor. Stopped for water and ended up buying one of their shopping bags as a souvenir. Town is not a tourist trap, but the typical shops in a row. Glad we stopped.
