We decided to stop in and have tacos on the way back from Hana and were pleasantly surprised to find how flavorful they were. We each had something different and we all thought they were very good. Moderately priced!

Close to Hana. Definitely stop here for a break. We got the island style tacos - fish and kalua pork for $7.50 and $8.50 respectively. Bit pricey but everything is in Hawaii. They were delicious. Quick snappy service. There are toilets around the side, but they are portaloos that dont flush so they arent the cleanest and are quite smelly... More

So you're driving the Hana highway and you're following the guidebook and here it is, a series of well, kind of shacks really. Several of them. It's a shack food court right here on the Hana highway and there's not a mall in America offering food like this. Yowza! The husband was set on Up in Smoke because he's a... More

Was able to get some veggie tacos here that were delicious. Thanks for offering a vegetarian option at a reasonable price!

It took our third trip on the highway to finally time it right so we could eat here! The fish tacos are huge and delicious. Other people in our group had the chili over rice and said it was one of their best meals so far on the island. I highly recommend!

We stopped by on our way to Hana, the place was 5mins from the airport in Hana The place was pretty busy with lots of people ordering the pork tacos and fish tacos. I ordered the fish tacos, they were pretty generous with their fish, it had beans and some cabbage. The fish tastes fresh. I ordered two tacos but... More

We stopped because after the Black Sand beach, I had a craving for some fish tacos. Unfortunately, they take cash only, so all we could afford were hot dogs, though they were delicious. There are a few food stands that make up this little compound. Oddly, only one of the stands serves beverages so you might have to go to... More

On the road back from Hana there are only a few places to eat. We caught this one just as they were about to close at 5pm. (Several other people arrived after us and they continued to serve them even after 5.) Cash only. Chickens walking around free range right next to us was a little unnerving for a city... More
