Carne Asada tacos and fries were great. Average price for the area, but quality is well above average. Right on the highway, outdoor seating only, cash or credit, very good quality. If you need tacos, this is your place.

This taco stand is legit! Best tacos on the island. The fish taco is so amazing bro! The shrimp taco is super tasty. The carne asada was cooked perfectly and the carnitas was the best we ever had! Mahalo and a hui hoe!
