“Authentic & simple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Stopped by Da Crack after reading reviews of its yummy, authentic food. We weren't disappointed! I had the chicken soft taco, which was great. Also tried chips & salsa, which were homemade and delicious. It seems to attract a line right as it opens, though, and is small: if you're in a hurry, you might run out of time.

“Good for a (relatively) inexpensive quick bite”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Little take-out shop near the big Poipu traffic circle (look for the yellow submarine and Seasport diviers). Ingredients were tasty in the pork burrito I had; wife's veggie quesadilla was less interesting. Expensive for mexican food compared to the mainland but average expense for Hawaii. Would be great for a post-dive hunger.

“Don't Miss the Fish Bowl”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

This place is easy to miss as it consists of a take out window in a very small strip shopping center just North of Poipu. However, it is well worth the effort as the food is wonderful and you can take it to a nearby beach for a totally relaxed dining experience. The fish is very fresh and served grilled with spices either in a bowl or a wrap with choice of rices and various beans and sauces. Same for the pork or veggie options. Soft drinks are also offered and the grocery right next door sells single bottle of beers should you need to go in that direction. It was so good we had to visit twice in less than a week! I recommend the fish bowl with black beans, mexican rice and the chipolte mayo sauce. Enjoy!

“Excellent Mexican Take OUT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I love their guacamole, their fish tacos, healthy portions and always with a smile and a GREAT attitude and aloha spirit! O.....almost forgot, the PRICE is great for what you receive. They don't gouge the tourists like some I won't mention do! Gk

“Da Crack is da crack!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

A whole in the wall - watch out, or you might miss it! The best mexican food, awesome fresh fish tacos. Usually a bit of wait, but it only speaks to the popularity of the place. Take out only. Kids menu available. Awesome!
