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.

Can't wait to get back to Kauai and El Pastor Lingua tacos. The BEST! Enjoying a quick bite watching the waves makes this a great food truck location.

Food trucks are taking over the world for good reason - best food for best prices. Fish tacos are amazing. Large perfectly cooked pieces of fish. The meal comes with rice and beans for $11. Hard to beat that. The food truck court has several trucks that have different offerings. We visited many times as did many other people but... More

Do not pass this food truck. It is located just North of downtown Kapaa on the ocean side. There are about 3 other food trucks there. The food, AKA ahi/fish tacos is the best. So fresh and delicious. A real treasure, don't miss it!

Not only were the Tacos fresh and delicious and very cheap - the atmosphere of food trucks and picnic tables was so fun. And the precious girl working the truck was friendly and so nice! I can't wait to go back. I am still thinking about my fresh ahi taco and shrimp taco full of huge shrimp:)

Ate here twice during recent visit to Kauai. There is no avoiding the only road in town and you end up passing through Kapaa and this Taco truck constantly. STOP and relish the fish tacos - had Mahi one day, ONO another - both fabulous. My bros-in-law sampled a bunch and his preference ( in order): chicken, pork, fish and... More
