You won't be disappointed!

Was a little leery of food trucks, but my husband was eager to try this one. He ordered the ahi tacos and I had the steak and mushroom quesadilla. Both were delicious! The food is cooked to order so it takes a little longer than a fast food place, but well worth the wait! There were 3 other... read more

Had the ahi tuna tacos and they were so delicious that I had to go back 2 more times while we were on the island. Cooked to order, hot and delicious. My hubby also had the ahi tuna burrito and it was delicious as well. Highly recommend a stop at this food truck while visiting the island.

Apparently dispite the name the fish taco I hear is their best. Duh your in Hawaii but my daughter who is used to us traveling to Mexico begged us to get them. They were ok but it is not Mexico.

This highly rated food truck was disappointing. Food was ordinary -pork tacos were fatty and service was friendly but slow. The beach is nearby but you don't feel it in the parking lot where the picnic tables are set up.

Wanted to try this because of the other reviews. The fish tacos were okay, but not to rave about. Paled compared to the fish tacos we had earlier in the week at the Kilauea Fish Market. They were very good.

Went to this place because I heard good things, fish tacos were pretty good, but if you're someone like me, (who is mexican and has traveled to Baja California and have tried Ensenada or Rosarito fish tacos), the fish tacos don't live up to the hype. Moreover, $4.50 for a taco of that caliber was kind of ridiculous. Furthermore, avoid... More

We've been visiting Kauai since 1988. We discovered this taco truck about 3 years ago and now make a point of visiting it in Kapaa, or at the art walk night in Hanapepe Friday night, whenever we're on Kauai. I love the tacos al pastor. My wife loves the ahi and shrimp tacos. Suffice it to say we are always... More

If seared Ahi tacos are on the menu, don't even think about ordering anything else. The Ahi was cooked perfectly; truly, I can't even imagine it being any better. The person staffing the food cart was also great -- definitely a 10!
