This food truck is parked on the location of the historic Koloa Bay Plantation. Our meals were fantastic. We had the Taco Trio and the Kalua pork with cabbage. Both were delicious. Also we had a fun and informative visit with the owner.

Hubby said these were the best tacos he had on island. He never took me there and I think he wanted to keep it for himself. ;-) I will make him take me on the next trip. You end up eating lots of tacos while you are on island so its nice to find good ones. He said the fish... More

The truck owners are personable, the food is exactly as advertised and was one of the best food places on this island, no question! They actually care about their service and quality which was sadly not the case with the rest of Kauai. Recommend.

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
