I have to admit... I have had better mexican food elsewhere, but hey - we´re in Kauai. With that being said the food was really good. We had the fish tacos (ahi) and the tacos al pastor. The fish tacos definitely won the battle, but dont´t stay away from eating here if you are not fond of fish as they... More

This food truck is located in Kapaa Town heading North. There are about 5 food trucks in that parking area but this food truck has some of the best tacos on the island. Great flavors and enough to fill you up. Not cheap but well worth it.

On our last day in Kauai, we went to Al Pastor Tacos. It's a food truck which seems to be permanently located in Kapaa. The fish tacos were amazing, easily the best we had on the island. I highly recommend. Very fresh and tasty!

This place is in a small collection of food trucks in Kapaa, and is usually busy. Everything here is outdoor, fresh, beach and sunshine. The tacos and guacamole were very good. Great value.

The service was fast and friendly. The Ahi fish tacos were wonderful!! This restaurant is located in a food truck outdoor area. Eating is outside only, but clean tables and seats.

The best fish tacos on the entire island! Today's fresh catch, Ahi. Because it is a food truck, there's only outdoor seating. The food is worth the inconvenience.

We were there in July 2015 and hit the truck after a nice bike ride on the path nearby. It was ahi season and these were some extremely fresh and loaded ahi tacos. Great flavor and we were fortunate to snag a picnic table with an umbrella, as the sun was very hot that day.
