Don't let the food truck fool you... these tacos were SOOOOO good, but definately opt out of the rice and beans and just go for the tacos by themselves. The shrimp tacos come with BIG SHRIMP and the fish tacos had some fresh delicious HUGE PIECES of fish!!!! The service was great and well... the chickens will keep you company... More

I own a small sightseeing tour company on Kauai and I love to sample every food truck I can so I can give recommendations to my guest, and I am very picky as to what I recommend. Consistency, freshness, and taste are my top priorities and you will find all of this at Al Pastor topped with attentive and friendly... More

Tried fish (mahi mahi), shrimp, and chicken tacos. Shrimp was my favorite. Fish was also excellent but found the chicken really bland. Super nice lady taking orders and delivering food. Price for rice and beans seemed a little high. Next time I'd just opt for another taco instead. We ate fish tacos at 5 or 6 places on the island... More

Awesome!!! My favorite fish taco on the island!! Service was a 10 only bad thing is they could really use an increased drink selection. Excellent food and good service with friendly and helpful staff. Hard to beat!! If I were a local this would be on my short list of go to places!!

We ate here twice. The first time we had the fish tacos with the catch of the day (Ahi) and they were very good. The second time we had the Al Pastor tacos and we were not disappointed. Great food at a reasonable price.

Get the fresh fish tacos. We went everyday before we left, we loved it that much. And we're from San Francisco, so we know from good taco. Everything made to order, fresh and delicious. The couple who runs it are excellent peeps: Faun and Paulino.
