Solid burritos. When people say hole in wall they mean it, it's just a counter to order and then eat in car (we drove to shops down street and at at tables outside). Food was very good, wasabi sour cream was unique too, but otherwise typical solid Mexican food joint.

This the hole in the wall you are looking for. Serving burritos, tacos & bowls fast & delicious. I crave the Chipotle Shrimp Bowl. The shrimp are ALWAYS cooked perfect, a ton of flavor. Open daily from 11-8 (Sundays they close at 4) it is a great spot for lunch or a dinner to take to sunset at the beach.

This was great food at a reasonable price. It is positioned in sort of a crack in the wall between two other businesses. Our kids liked the fact that it was next door to an Organic Market, also. The kids liked it so well, they drove back (probably 45 minutes round trip) for their last meal before boarding the plane... More

Visited Da Crack based on reviews we read on trip advisor. They were right. It's all take out, and that was great since we were headed to the beach. Don't miss it if you visit Poipu Bay!

After spending the day at Poipu beach, we were looking for a late lunch at a non restaurant setting (we were still in beachwear). We happened upon this restaurant. You step up to the order window, build your own burrito, quesadilla, taco. Ingredients are fresh, the meal is made to order, and the wait for food was just over 5... More

This place is a must stop and have a fantastic burrito. We had the steak, pork and veggie burritos. They were so good that we had them 3 different times during a 5 day stay! Highly recommend this restaurant

Not sure why this place is rated #1. Quite average at best. $8 nachos that were literally chips on a paper plate with some shredded cheese thrown on top. The cheese wasn't even melted. Burritos were decent but not anything amazing.

Sent my wife out to pick up a couple burritos and nachos. Wait was over 30 minutes and food was mediocre. The chain Tijuana Flats blows this joint out of the water. Good thing it was reasonably priced for the island. Very average, but would still recommend due to the lack of good dining in Kauai (minus 2 or 3... More

Amazing takeaway mexican. Fresh, made to order-great value. No where to sit- just a window that takes your order. There are a couple of wooden benches along the parking lot- no tables though. Worth it- burritos, taco bowls, quesadillas, all built to your specifications. You won't be disappointed.

For some fantastic and inexpensive Mexican food while on the south shore of Kauai, you MUST check out this little "hole in the wall". It's all food to go...and it's good. Grab a burrito for lunch and walk down to the beach for an incredible view while your mouth explodes with flavor. Trust me on this!

Thank Chris H
