They give big portions of food and its really tasty. I always come here when I'm craving some Mexican food. Great stuff and they prices aren't bad either. Little hole in the wall places are the best in my book.

First time to Da Crack did not disappoint. We heard people talking about this place and it was the perfect lunch spot after a long morning of zip lining! Try the pork nachos for sure!

DA Crack lived up to all the other reviews. I got the burrito. It was huge and full of flavor. After a long day on the north part of the island, this mexican food really hit the spot. The service was good and very fast! We will be back!

After reading all of the positive and glowing write-ups about Da Crack we were really looking forward to trying their food. My husband and I both ordered the fish tacos. What a disappointment to find the 2 fish pieces per taco, 2" x 0.5" x 1" blocks of fish which was dry and chewy. The black beans and rice were... More

During a recent 2 week trip to Kauai, there were only two restaurants that my husband and I chose to eat at twice. This was one of them. Food is high quality, tasty and filling. Even though it is a hole in the wall, it is rated highly for quality of food. Take it to go or eat at the... More

Stopped by for dinner after a day of exploring. The restaurant consists of one window for ordering and a second window for picking up your food. From that standpoint, it is a hole in the wall. That said, the service was fast and friendly and the food was excellent. Prices were very reasonable and the portions were generous. If you're... More

We went here due to recommendation by friends. It was good but too pricey for Mexican food. $40 for 3 basic foods was too much. One nachos, one fish, one fish & shrimp. Definitely not enough sour cream or cheese. The pico was good and the rice. The beans were over seasoned. I'd go again tho.

Stayed at the Hyatt (which is AMAZING, but wanted some local/non-resort food. This place is delicious and so unassuming. The pork is kalua pork, not carnitas, which makes it more Hawaiian. Grabbed a burrito and bowl, lucky to get a bench spot to eat. Otherwise, take to go!

This place has really good Burritos and other Mexican fare at very reasonable prices for the island. It's take-out, for your picnic on the beach, or to bring back to your room because you don't want to spend a lot of time messing with food. After all, your on Kauai! You'd rather be surfing, hiking or snorkeling, right? We went... More
