This wasn't bad by any means. It just did not live up to the spectacular reviews. I was expecting more.

We stopped at this place a year ago, the flavors of everything we tried kept our memories active. Remembering the days living in Mexico, but now having this food in Kauai, it makes it a very pleasant experience. Operated by owners Paulino and Fawn, some of their fiends and other family members help out during odd hours, friendly and good... More

The fish tacos were very good, although they are very very small. They use 4.5" corn tortillas. The ahi was super fresh and cooked to a perfect medium rare, as it should be. The tacos came with a scoop of steamed white rice and some simple beans. I would clearly return if in the mood, but they are expensive for... More

Really great tacos! We tried the fish, shrimp and chicken tacos. All delicious. Excellent and friendly customer service as well. Lots of food for the price. Perfect for lunch as we were walking around and shopping.

Stopped by on the way back from Na Pali. Decent fare as tacos go, but nothing out of the ordinary I thought. Had the ahi tacos and the veggie ones. If you are in the area, and want a quick bite, sure go ahead...don't go looking specifically for this, is my take.

We enjoyed eating at this food truck recently. The fish tacos were delicious. The plate had two small generously filled tacos as well as rice and beans. The flavor of the fish came through the tasty sauce. Yum! There were outside tables with umbrellas to get out of the sun.

When in Kapa'a don't shy away from the Taco Truck as this one is a gem if you like Ahi fish taco's. Comes with beans and rice, which sounds like prison grub, but not in this case as this family makes sure you will enjoy your beachside lunch fare!

This was the second place we ate in Kauai, and being at present the second best rated restaurant on Kauai, it was disappointing. Yes, it is a food truck, and had potential, but the ahi tuna fish taco that we had was undercooked (i.e. raw in the center - we are not fans of sushi and raw fish) and also... More

Ri-god-damn-dic-u-lous.... All we wanted was a fish taco. We stopped at this roadside truck. My husband ordered 2 fish tacos and we sat in our car to wait, since it was raining. The lady who took our order actually came out to our car to deliver it! So nice. The tacos were to DIE FOR. Came with hot beans and... More
