Great food and location

We ate here twice. The first time we had the fish tacos with the catch of the day (Ahi) and they were very good. The second time we had the Al Pastor tacos and we were not disappointed. Great food at a reasonable price.

Get the fresh fish tacos. We went everyday before we left, we loved it that much. And we're from San Francisco, so we know from good taco. Everything made to order, fresh and delicious. The couple who runs it are excellent peeps: Faun and Paulino.

We always stay in Kapaa and walk or ride the bike path and this is our favorite place to stop for lunch on the way back to our hotel. Delicious. See you next year!!!!

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.
