If you want a great taco while in Kauai, this is the place. A must do. A simple taco truck steps from the beach. We had the pork and also the fish. Both were excellent. Was so good we had to go back the next day for lunch again.

When we first visited Kauai in 1988, there was little to speak of in terms of Mexican food on the island. Over the years, particularly in the last two or three, this situation has changed. When we “discovered” Tacos Al Pastor about two years ago, it was a very happy find. The quality of the meats is quite high, and... More

This is a cool little family run food truck. It was the best food that we had in kauai and the best tacos we have ever had.

Only joint that doesn't claim to have best fish tacos on island, however fish tacos are likely the best option. 4.50 ala carte fish taco, double corn tortilla. Filling and solid value. Only restaurant to ask how I'd prefer my fish taco cooked (rare or medium rare awesome). Shrimp taco was best I've had on island, fish tied for tops... More

2 tacos for $11. I got the tacos al pastor (pork), and they were excellent! My husband got the fish tacos (mahi), and he loved them. Quick lunch from the food truck. Seating provided. Or grab and go.

We were really hungry after a day of trails and we stopped here, sine there was a long queue. Well, the fresh fish tacos and the chicken tacos are AMAZING! The staff is super nice, they will guide you through the list. We got the tacos in about 5-10' and they were very good, well topped, and with some good... More

I'm going to say that this is the second best fish taco on the island by the slimmest of margins. They have some amazing tacos. Their fish was excellent and their namesake al pastor tacos were also mouthwateringly good. I would definitely say it's one of the best places to get great tacos on the island and would say it...

This is the best Food we had in a week staying in Hanalei. We leave to go south today and and are very excited to stop in again. The food in the north had been a big disappointment (this is our 3rd trip to the island). We were excited to see the great food truck scene as we own and... More
