Great Tacos

We saw a lot of people eating here, so we stopped! Glad we did, after a long day a driving it was just what we needed to keep forging ahead on the road to Hana. My husband and I tried the Pork, Steak and Fish tacos, all great and tasted very fresh!

Pretty much everything Linda and Carl offers is a friend of your stomach! The pig tacos are great, as are the fish tacos. Huge portions will leave you full and satisfied. Several different sauces from mild to spicy are also offered. A nice spot for lunch or a snack...

Maybe I was starving from a long day on the road and adventure, or they have awesome Kahlua pig tacos....either way I ate them like I was just rescued

We decided to stop in and have tacos on the way back from Hana and were pleasantly surprised to find how flavorful they were. We each had something different and we all thought they were very good. Moderately priced!
