So we found Island Tacos on YELP and are we glad we did. Get ready for the most amazing and unique taco experience. We tried the fish tacos, pork and shrimp tacos. Our favorite were the pork tacos, the unique sauce and use of cabbage was perfectly Island Tacos. We also tried the cilantro lime dipping sauce for our chips and salsa..AMAZING flavor.
I don't ususally talk up tacos, but these were worth mulitple trips. The prices were not bad at all for Hawaii. We spent around $75 to feed 6 adults including 3 types of tacos (3 per flavor), Chips & Salsa, Cilantro Sauce, and drinks. The challenge is finding a place to sit, but we did.
The staff was great, upbeat, fast, fun-loving. We wanted to stop again, but the next time we were on that side of the island was our last day and we ate a late pinic lunch so we were not ready to eat again.
DO NOT MISS ISLAND TACOS. Supposedly the be fish taco place on the island was noted as Tropical Tacos in Hanelei...they were OK, but there is no comparison to the tasty, unique island tacos. All 6 people in our party felt like we had amazing taco experienced - who knew tacos could be so great.
One more tip - we visited several stores throughout different areas of Kauai (West, South, East, and North) the little shop right next to Island Tacos had great prices. I bought a hand carved surf board for our teenage son for $15 that was $30 or more everywhere else we looked. So check it out...
I suggest the long drive through the beautiful pacific rim Waimea Canyon and then stop at Island Tacos with a good appetite and ENJOY!!!
