Found this restaurant by accident did not know it was so popular:-)

We were there at 13:00; managed to escape this Q;photo attached haha.

Noodle tasted home made, broth was good too ;can't argue with that. What makes it even better was that irs prices was reasonable.

It was a quick in quick out experience ; you seat down and was asked how many bowls of noodles, big or small, as simple as that. There was only one kind of noodle on the menu . Oh..yes, they have a pictorial menu so no worries if you can't speak, read Japanese.

You wouldn't be able to park by the road next or near the restaurant but there is a park lot near the Motobu Old Market, which is just across the road.

本部町の老舗の沖縄そば店です
カーナビやスマホの地図で行くとわかりづらいところにありますが本部町営市場の近くにあります
メニューは
そば小 500円
そば大 650円
じゅーしー 250円
の三つしかありません
※じゅーしーとは沖縄風混ぜご飯のことです
そばはかつおだし濃いめの沖縄そばです。上に豚のラフテー(角煮)とかまぼこが乗っています
この濃いめのかつおだし昆布と合わせだしとお醤油のそばが美味い!こういう古いスタイルのは本島南部ではなかなか出てこないのです
そしてじゅーしーは干し椎茸、豚の角煮細切れ、昆布が入ったうまみいっぱいのじゅーしー
沖縄の相場から言うとお高めなのですが、頼んでしまいますね
手打ち麺なのですが、もそもそしているのがちょい残念ではあります
一応外国語でメニューあります

A very old Okinawa soba shop in Motobu. Difficult to find the shop but close to Motobu town market.
The taste of Okinawa soba is really good. This is old Okinawan style, which is difficult to find in south now.
Soup taste is thick, from kelp and dried bonito stock and soy source.
Stewed pork and fish cake is on the soba.
Recommend to take Juusii(A cooked rice with dried mushroom, kelp and pork) is really full of umami taste.
Menu is only three choice
Soba (small size 500 yen or medium size 650yen ) and Juusii 250 yen.

The place is small, and probably sits no more than 30 people. I chose to visit the place after the busy lunch hours and i would assume it to be a more pleasant to eat the delicious Okinawa Soba without the pressure of a line of people queuing to get in and to give up your seat as soon as you have slurped up the last bit of soup in your bowl.

It took me a while to look for parking space as it was situated in a narrow lane. I parked a short distance away but apparently there is a parking space for the restaurant patrons. Do some research on it before driving there.

Food is delicious and relatively inexpensive. Definitely a good choice.

We arrive around 13:00 and there was still people in line waiting. But it only take a little while to get in.
Soba is amazing! Taste so good, and my kids loved their noodle so much, they finished everything! Rice is very similar to Chinese steam rice, tastes great!
We had a very nice lunch here! :)

We visited this second outlet of this restaurant after discovering that the original outlet (only about 10 minutes away by car) was closed on Wednesdays. The ordering is by vending machine, with the menu limited to Okinawan soba in various sizes and rice. Good value for money - we spent about 1500 yen for 2 noodles and 2 rices.
