It is getting harder to find good local food so we were pleased the Kauai Food Truck was still located in the park in Old Koloa Town. The butterfish special plate lunch was delicious and filling. There are lots of options to try. Seating is picnic style on tables within the park, complete with chickens to offer accompaniment to the... More

This is a stationary food truck surrounded by a few picnic tables parked in a grassy area in Koloa town. I've eaten here 4-5 times and the food is always good and fresh. It's good for a quick lunch when you don't want the fuss of heading to a restaurant. The menu is small, with a few types of tacos... More

We stopped here for a quick bite to eat on the way to the airport and were blown away! We got the Blue Hawaiian Burger topped with bleu cheese and the shrimp tacos. We were literally moaning in delight in the car as we drove away. The food was absolutely delicious - there was some type on the red sauce... More

Food is amazing!!! Hardest part is to get there on the day they are open since they have funny business hours. They close as soon as they run out of meat and fish they bought for that day. Very tasty, fresh and you will be eating surrounded by many chickens and rusters which we thought were so cute. Must go... More

What an experience! We decided that we wanted to follow the locals to eating places this trip. I enjoyed the butterfish sandwich and my grandkids had the tacos trio and said they were great. The pork with rice plate was very good too per my husband. Don't be turned off by the look of the truck, the food was delicious.... More

Our one granddaughter had a Hawaii burger. It came with a huge burger with pinapple on it. She doesn't usually eat much meat, but she ate most of it. The other granddaughter had pork over rice. It was a huge portion. My husband and I finally got our shrimp dinner. It was delicious with huge shrimp and sides.

This truck is located in Koloa, right across from a row of shops and restaurants. It has picnic table right around the truck. For the value, this place is fantastic. I loved my butterfish because it was so tender. The garlic shrimp was yummy too. But the rice with garlic butter...I could not stop eating the rice. If you visit... More

This one of my two favorite food trucks in Kauai. My favorite is the fish sandwich, but everything else I see come out of the truck looks delicious. I sometimes get a couple to go and bring them to the beach. Eat here!

Fabulous pork tacos!! Local roosters chickens and a duck may be your companions at your feet adding to the local flavor. Situated in grassy area as you enter Koloa. Near the old town brick oven. We loved the fish tacos made from one of our local favorite fishes, refreshing as was NOT Mahi mahi

Ate there twice. Would have been 3 times, but found them closed that afternoon. Had Boar burger, and the toasted cheese. Really great food and good prices.
