Good deal on the Hana highway

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

Amazed that in the middle of a tropical rainforest this little group of vendors exists. Enjoyed my fish taco and watching everyone coming and going. It was a great spot to stop along the road to Hana.

We are staying in Hana and drove to " Up In Smoke" for Fish Tacos. Both of us had the worst Fish Tacos we have ever tasted. The fish was NOT fresh, we could not even identify it as fish! Both tacos ended up in the garbage can. We drove back to Hana and had lunch at another restaurant.

The fish and pork tacos were both tasty and made for a satisfying lunch stop on the way to Hana. Definitely worth trying!

Both the fish & sirloin tacos are delicious. Get ONE per person because they are huge! We got this for dinner on our way to Hana.

Definitely the right choice for a lunch stop on the road to/from Hana. Next to a couple other food stands, but ignore them and look for the "Local Style Tacos" sign in the middle. Best pork taco I've had. And I will be craving another for a long time. Big, simple, and perfect shredded pork. The garlic chili sauce was... More
