Pretty much everything Linda and Carl offers is a friend of your stomach! The pig tacos are great, as are the fish tacos. Huge portions will leave you full and satisfied. Several different sauces from mild to spicy are also offered. A nice spot for lunch or a snack...

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

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

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
