Stopped by chance, Glad I did.

Stopped at Tacos Al Pastor by chance yesterday, was hungry and headed north. What a great surprise. I have the steak taco. For 4 bucks I got a ton of well seasoned steak with all the toppings. Fantastic food for not being in Mexico. I will be back for sure.

Delicious fish tacos, the chipotle sauce on them was fantastic, my partner had the pork tacos, they were very good, maybe slightly salty for my taste. Great location right in the shopping area.

Wasn't sure what to expect when we visited this little street taco vendor, but we got the fish tacos and the Ono fish burrito and they were wholesome, fresh and tasted great. If I am ever back in Kepaa I would definitely go there again. Recommended!

This place was so good! We got the fish tacos and the (fresh locally caught) fish for the day was ahi. It was spectacular! It comes with two tacos stuffed full of delicious goodness and served with rice and beans! We also got an order of al pastor(pork) tacos and they were good too! The fish tacos were better in...

Amazing ahi tacos! Took down a few of them during my stay. Enjoyed the Ono burrito (Ono was the fresh catch another day), but ahi is the star when they have it. Pastor tacos are ok, but the ahi taco is probably the best taco I have ever had.

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 catch their... 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!
