Looking for good fish tacos for a decent price and found this truck next to Nom where we had breakfast. Went back for lunch and were very pleasantly surprised. My wife and I both had the fish tacos which that day was Ahi. The fish was the biggest piece of Ahi you could get into a taco shell and cooked... More

We tried a LOT of fish tacos on Kauai and these were the best, hands down. The ahi was oh so fresh and cooked to perfection with minimal ingredients. Amazing avocado sauce too. Go here if you are in the area! Or drive here if you aren't. You won't be sorry.

By far the best tacos that we had on the island! We tried many taco stands, taco trucks etc and nothing beat Tacos Al Pastor! Even the veggie tacos were very tasty, had great flavor and sauces and we enjoyed by my husband who is a meat eater. Definitely go check them out!

We loved this place as they had an a la cart menu as we were only looking for one taco to hold us over till dinner. The food is amazing. Picnic... More

Stopped for a quick bite. Shared chips, salsa, and the fresh catch fish tacos. Ahi caught that morning; delicious!

Tacos come with 2 tacos with beans and rice and the side. Was great that there was double tortilla for each taco as there was as so much filling. We had fish tacos which were great.

Very good tasting. Shrimp tacos for me and chicken for the wife. (They had run out of the fish). At a nicer restaurant I would expect to get two very small soft taco shell with each having three medium shrimp in them and pay $12. At a food truck I expected better. I had three times the shrimp for the... More

So we did a mini taco crawl (basically hit up as many taco places as we can) and found this one to be amazing! The amount of fish they put on the taco is pretty awesome (especially for $4.50). We went back a second time it was that good - and the woman that works it is super kind! I... More

Simple but fresh and very tasty. I will we had this back home where I live. There are other food trucks next door so this... More
