Really great food, no atmosphere because it's a truck with a place to sit at plastic picnic table under a tent. Takes a bit to get your order-but it is made fresh so it's worth the wait. The food tastes so good the portions seem a bit small. I think most adults would want two items, even my kids eat... More

My family had food for lunch from Pat's last week. My husband had the kalua pork taco and carne asada taco. $4 bucks each. I had a veggie burrito for $7. Our two kids shared a kid's bean cheese and rice burrito which was pretty small, kids size. I would have ordered two had I known it would be so... More

If you like beef or pork, this is the food truck for you- can't go wrong with either choice. Located in Hanalei bay, perfect lunch for sitting on the pier and soaking in the sun and scenic views. Loved the tortillas too!

Good beach tacos at the beach. Because it is just a little trailer in the beach parking lot, it takes a few minutes to get your food. It is not just sitting around waiting to be purchased. Probably the best fish tacos on Kauai.

Best fish taco's??? Not! The best thing about this is its convenient if you're starving and don't want to leave the beach.

The title says it all. The tortilla wasn't flabby as some corn tortillas can be, but strong enough to stand up to the perfect, luscious fish. A little pricier than your average fish taco ($5 for the taco, $9 for the fish burrito) but absolutely worth every penny. Friendly, fast service, even with the long line. Wish i had gotten... More

Good food right on the beach in Hanalei bay. I had the carne asada burrito and it was more of a snack than a meal, wish I would have gotten two!

The fish tacos and carne asana can't be beat. They open at noon so be first in line if you want to avoid the wait, butt it moves quickly. Bring plenty of napkins as they are messy but fantastically delicious!
