I am quite a connoisseur of tacos. I've eaten every kind and make a pretty good taco myself. These tacos are fresh and the service was really phenomenal. I had the lengua and the ahi fish taco. I also had one El Pastor. The salsa was delicious. I had read the reviews and expected a little more from the tacos.... More

Everything I have eaten here tastes GREAT! A healthier food choice for a very reasonable price. I usually order the Al Pastor off the menu. Comes with 2 tacos, beans and rice. The customer service is outstanding and it makes it very easy to want to return. The good vibes come through in the taste of the food. One of... More

The folks are super friendly and the food is beyond exceptional! I had the Al Pastor, Lenqua, and Fish (of the day) tacos.

It is the second time here because it is so delicious. The ahi fish grilled perfectly, the beans, the rice and the guacamole, all together make this tacos so amazing. Glad that still we have days from our vacation to come here. The price is the lowest from all tacos we had on island.

Generous portions of delicious fish cooked to perfection is what we found at Al Pastor. Add a side of beans & rice and a soft drink for a complete meal under $15...not a bad price for Kauai. It is a food truck so it's not known for its atmosphere, but heck, you're in Kauai. You can get atmosphere anytime!

We ran across this taco cart and wow did we have a party in our mouth. After eating standard island style food the wife and I was craving Mexican food on the island. We did the local caught fish tacos and the portion was larger than other dinner plates at other eating establishments. Worth the wait if there is a... More

Absolutely great food! It was nice to sit and chat with the locals eating here as well. Plus, you can walk to the public beach afterwards.
