Perfect fish taco

Beautiful fresh ingredients ( local fish ) done perfectly for fair price and friendly Kauia service .... It really doesn't get better.

Just finished lunch at the food truck, Tacos Al Pastor. We both had fish tacos and shrimp tacos, skipped the sides. Both tacos were very fresh and stuffed full. It is located on the northside of Kapaa town, along with 3-4 other food trucks. Do stop for lunch and enjoy the tacos at their covered picnic tables!

On our way back from Anini Beach, we stopped by at Tacos Al Pastor. This was the first time I had Mexican food. We had a fresh fish taco and a grilled fish burrito. Both tasted good but we would have liked them to be more spicy. But the portion was huge and I struggled to finish my taco. Tacos... More

We had the food truck come out to the venue where everyone was staying for our rehearsal dinner. Al Pastor put together a fantastic spread of appetizers and then I picked out a selection of entrees that people could order from for dinner. The food was absolutely amazing! We had people from California and Texas saying that the fish tacos... More

It was easy to find and the location is right next to the water. These are by far the best fish tacos and homemade beans I have had in a long time. Trust me I know homemade I am Mexican. I would definitely come again. You have to deal with the roosters and chickens. They are not shy.

These tacos are the best fish tacos we have found! They serve whatever was caught fresh that day, and they are killer! We had aha tuna the day we were there, and it was so fresh... unbelievable. The prices may seem a little high, until you get your food and see that they do not skimp on the portions. Don't... More

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
