We visited DaCrack a couple of times during our stay on Poipu beach. The prices are very reasonable and food is tasty. This place is just for grabbing food and may be eating it in hotel or in the car. There is no real seating in front of the restaurant. Overall, good food for budget conscious vacationers.

This is where the locals go, and you know why once you taste their yummy burritos. Service is quick, but there's no outdoor seating, so get it to go and take it back to your hotel. They don't have water, so stop by Big Save and purchase your own!

We loved the food! Good portions, quick, and very tasty! We went for lunch and all of us were stuffed and happy. Little pricey. No real seating.

A quick trip down the street in Poipu, you will find a little window called Da Crack. After a morning in the sun, beach, and snorkeling, we stopped at the Da Crack to order take out so we could go back to the condo and relax. Food was really good, pork was juicy and tender. We loved the salsa. Everyone... More

We went here after snorkeling and boogie boarding all morning. We had to wait over 30 minutes for our food. I never mind waiting if the food is good. Food was amazing. Large portions and almost instinct seating so we ate in the car.

This place is a great little known local place to eat on Kauai. Good fish tacos and burritos. Beware though, if you are going with family, friends or a large group there is no seating and no indoors. Prepare to eat in the car or along side the building or in the parking lot. Food is very good. Can get... More

We were in the mood for something quick, good and filling after a long morning at the beach. Da Crack filled all those needs. We ordered a shrimp burrito and fish burrito, both were excellent. It was a walk up place with some benches. So we ordered our food, went next door to the grocery store to grab some drinks... More

This was the best fish taco I have ever had! The outside of the shop was a little uninviting but the food was absolutely wonderful!

While in Kauai, we not only wanted to reign in our food budget a little, but we like eating at less "touristy" places when possible. Da Crack is quite literally a hole in the wall; you walk up to a window and order your food, and aside from a couple of benches, there is no other seating. So my husband,... More

If you stay in Poipu for any length of time, you'll realize that you need some "real" food that doesn't cost a bundle. Da Crack is great for lunch or dinner, and they'll customize their fresh Mex food for you. (One note, I found that the Mexican rice tasted like raw garlic so I opted for the plain brown rice).
