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

This little spot just before the 29 mile marker is worth the stop. We had packed lunch, but decided to save it. A friend had told us about this place and the amazing pig taco - it didn't disappoint!!! It was amazing and topped with their homemade hot chili garlic sauce made it even mor amazing! Do the road to... More

If you're on your way to Hana this is a great spot to stop for a quick bite! The pulled pork is great and as a taco it's packed with yummy goodness!

This like food outlet is not really a BBQ joint even though it is titled “Up in Smoke BBQ” and part of the Nahiku Marketplace. They serve pretty decent tacos and some other fare. Food truck style, some good sauces and the regular additions including pulled pork, hot dogs, etc. Based on what we saw & ate; go for the... More
