After walking away from many Kauai restaurants hungry and broke we needed something different. Grab a fish bowl from Da Crack and head to the beach. Now that is a vacation

excellent food, the fish tacos take a while to cook, they are worth the wait... wasabi sour cream, avocado and cabbage were awesome accoutrements on my Ono Fish Tacos... I did not try anything else but I imagine everything is excellent

Love the bowls with fresh grilled fish on top. Get the Mexican brown rice with black beans...you can't go wrong- and good luck finishing a bowl by yourself!

Picked up a bowl with pork with rice, beans and random assortment of toppings and thought it was great!! Loved how the food is layered and they dont just fill it up with rice and beans. All the flavours are just balanced with not too much of anything in particular. We will be coming back here before we leave. We... More

This place is literally a hole in the wall, wait - a crack in the wall. Delicious burritos. The local fish was awesome. Huge portion. There was a bit of a wait and no seating on site, but this was worth the stop!

This is a real "Hole in the Wall" with just a walk up window to order at with a kitchen in the back. It's perfect if you are on your way home from the beach and too nasty to sit down in a restaurant. Because it's cheap & tasty food, there tends to be a long line and long wait... More

Awesome shredded beef burrito. Had heard good things about this "hole in the wall" restaurant and they were all true. Don't be fooled by the exterior, just look at the line of people happily waiting for their food and know that this is a great stop for Mexican food.

Bring your appetite! Da Crack serves up some hot awesome. A walk-up window, portions are Texas-sized. The food is great. The shoe experience is great. You put it together, they make it and then you find a place to eat and be prepared to be full. I had a burrito that took me two days to eat with the Kalau... More
