Good choice for food carts on Kauai

I have benefited a lot from TripAdvisor reviews over the least few years. So, to stop in on the #3 rated restaurant on Kauai, my expectations were very high. Were these the best fish tacos my son or wife have ever had? No they say. (That would have been in Punta de Mita on the beach where they... read more

Amazing Mexican food in Kappa Town.👍 Craving Mexican tacos? Tacos Al Pastor has it and you forget that you're in Kauai. The quesadilla's and carne Assad tacos are great-very tasty.

We've been on Kauai for two weeks. For the most part, we're glad we've rented a house and can cook at home because eating out is quite costly and to be honest, hasn't been very good....UNTIL we stopped at Tacos Al Pastor. This place is worth stopping for! Our family of six tried shrimp, steak and chicken tacos along with... More

Been to Kauai several times and always wanted to stop and try an ahi taco. Finally stopped and yummy!!! Our family had steak, chicken and ahi tacos. So so good! Loved it so much came back again. Tacos ala carte cost $4.50 each- worth every penny! Delish!

There are 3-4 food trucks parked here. It's like a food truck, food court. The Tacos were supper fresh. Very good food. I didn't see a real restroom around. You have to use a porta potty in the back. Not a fan of those. I would def. return if I found myself back in Kapaa.

I had my first tacos from this truck two years ago and couldn't wait to have it again upon my return. It was crowded at lunch time, so the wait wasn't a short one. The only problem with the wait is that the seating area is small and shade was in short supply (it was quite warm). I ordered my... More

Mahi mahi was the fish of the day. Great fish tacos. It is just a truck, but the food is worth stopping for.

I enjoyed the fish tacos here two year ago on a visit to Kauai. Went back today for a second visit and they were to die for best fish tacos I have ever had. I am from California so I have had my fair share of fist tacos. The secret sauce and the freshest of fish did me in. I... More

Our family have enjoyed tacos all over the island and these are among the best. Each type not only contains different protein (fresh fish, kalua pork, steak or chicken - each very tasty) but are also differently prepared - giving you lots of variety. Prices are also right and service is friendly. Although some on this site criticize limited drink... More
