Stop here on your way to the canyon. Each taco will run around $4.50 and are much bigger than they seem. Tried fish, shrimp, chicken and carnitas. All were great by would recommend chicken and shrimp. Chicken had amazing seasonings. Skip taquitos and get more tacos!

This is a BYOB restaurant, so be sure to visit the little "package" store two doors down. I have to give some credit to the manager on site who was quick to point out where we could get some cold beers to go with those tacos. We had the fish and shrimp tacos which were very filling and tasty, but... More

We try all different things while on vacation. We ask locals where to go, what to eat ect.

My son had a chicken quesadilla, my... More

By far, the best fish tacos. Tried Tiki's Tacos, Duke's and Al Pastors. All were good but nothing compared to Paco's Tacos !! We went twice while we where there, something we usually don't do because we like to try as many different restaurants as we can when we vacation.

Very friendly and reasonably prices for a cheap eat, the fish tacos here were se of the best food we are all trip! Highly recommend this place,... More

Stopped by for a quick bite to eat. We had a taco and enchilada. Tasty and hot. Hit the spot for a mid afternoon "snack."

This may not look like much - a tiny wood building with a couple of picnic benches out front, but they put out some great Mexican food! I go for the veggie burritos and the cheese enchiladas, both yummy! I live in Hanapepe so it's great having a good Mexican take-out restaurant so close by. They now have a Kapaa... More

We went here several times on our vacation. Can only rate the baja style chicken tacos. They were very good. Portions were good and always served hot. Don't forget to add the hot sauce. It was very good.
