This was a typical Hawaiian plate. There are not a lot of choices in town. This was very clean. People very nice. If u like Hawaiian plates, you'll like this little place. Good stop after riding ATV's .

We stopped here on our way to the beach and so glad we did! The Korean Chicken plate was the best chicken I've had in a long time! And the fresh fish sandwich was outstanding. Highly recommend Minnie's!

I had the roast pork sandwich (shredded on a hamburger bun), which came with pickles and chips and a side cup of gravy. Dang, it was good. My boyfriend had the korean chicken, which was actually in the form of chicken wings. I couldn't snag one because he ate them that fast. Food is ordered at the window and delivered... More

We stumbled on this place after hiking at Pololū Valley and are so glad we did. This was the best lunch we had on the island. Small no frills establishment with great local plate lunches. We had the Korean Chicken plate which was excellent!

We were referred to Minnie's by a local. What a great place! Not crowded but lots of aloha spirit gods home cooking and service.

Had the occasion to visit Minnie's again this year on our annual trip to the Big Island. Stopped for lunch and once again, was not disappointed. We shared a plate lunch of swordfish, rice and cole slaw, accompanied by iced tea, for just over $20. The swordfish was delicious and the caring service was outstanding. We'll be back.
