Read the reviews and visited this cart pod on the north end of Kapa'a. My wife had the fish tacos (fresh Ono this day) and I had the shrimp tacos. Wow! A meal is $11 - hard to beat. Looks like some other good places in the pod, but will be making this a regular stop.

Good tacos at a decent price. Would have preferred a four tortilla over the corn tortillas served. I had the al pastor taco which was good and the ahi taco which was good also.

We found this place off of Trip Advisor. What a great stop. The tacos here are delicious and made fresh. The garlic shrimp tacos came with rice and beans. The woman working the food truck was very nice. Picnic tables are available.

We stopped on our way to tour the island. Good portions for the price you pay and yummy! If you walk towards the ocean behind the restaurant you can find a nice area with a swing where you can sit down and enjoy your meal in place of traditional tables by the food truck :)

This meal was better than expected. The portion size was large. The service was excellent - they have clearly done this alot. The price was high - $30 for fish tacos and a pop, but it is Kauai on the beach.

Best tacos we had in Kauai! These are fairly authentic Mexican tacos but made with fresh Hawaiian seafood. We split an order of ahi and shrimp tacos. They did not skimp on the seafood! The tacos were fresh and delicious and very filling. This is a great value for delicious food.

If you want a great fish taco then this is the place to go. Quaint little food truck cluster with lots of shaded seating. The steak taco was pretty awesome also.

After lived in Kauai for a year and tried all upscale and dive fish restaurants, El Pastor is the best you will find in Kauai.
