This is truly a hole in the wall. It's take out. You order from a window and wait standing around. I've eaten a lot of Mexican food growing up in Southern California. Da Crack serves good fresh food. It is not spectacular or truly unique. Our bill for eight came to about $65.00 with four drinks. I had the fish... More

Our family of two teens are all big fans of Mexican food and went to Da Crack with high expectations based on TripAdvisor and guidebook reviews. Our take - the food is good, but no better than Chipotle or similar. What makes it unique is that there really isn't anything like that in the area, and the prices are relatively... More

I had the Sunrise Burrito and was it ever so good. It was so big that I had the rest for breakfast. The hot sauce combined with the pick de gallo topped it all off. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a big meal burrito. The only drawback is that the place is so popular with the local surfers... More

Not sure how they get the rave reviews-maybe the locals like it, but if you like good Mexican food go elsewhere.

read about Da Crack in a guidebook, and I am glad I did --it is a great place to grab delicious and filling burritos/tacos at a very fair price, especially by Poipu standards. Locals sure know about this place. Fish tacos and shredded chicken burritos were incredibly tasty. Skip the expensive sit-down restaurants and try this place for one of... More

quick service, no frills presentation, reasonable prices and good sized portions. located in a small strip mall next to a grocery store and Kauai Outfitters...parking lot is a zoo at lunch time, so take care with the rental car when navigating the tight lot.

My husband and I were looking for a good, authentic, cheap place to eat and weren't disappointed. For $25 and change, we each got a hefty sized burrito, mine chicken his fish, and chips and salsa. The burritos were huge and easily customizable. Mine was filled with Mexican brown rice, cabbage, tomatoes, cheese, salsa and chicken. My husband had dish,... More

"Da Crack" has some of the best modern Mexican food I've ever eaten, and I've lived in Phoenix, AZ and been to Mexico many times.

Good fish tacos in Poipu. My son had the cheese quesadilla and loved it. I would recommend it for a good somewhat quick meal. The store next door sells drinks-beer, water, soda...

You know when you see a line for a food window, it has to be good, well Da Crack did not disappoint. The food was really fresh, and the fish tacos were amazing. You are basically waiting on line in the parking lot, and have to wait 10-15 minutes for you food. No place to eat it there, so take... More
