We had been here 2 weeks, trying to get back & not miss out, we could have had happy hour $4 tacos, nobody there wen we walked in, it didn’t look good, but no we hoped it wasn’t an accurate indicator🙈 we spent $24 on...a guacamole nachos, a lousy lousy serve, not as advertised, no cheese on burritos, minimal, minimal serve, so disappointing, we paid $36 for a margarita & a beer $4.85 advertised, charged us $6.00, in happy hour hour . 3-5pm, we were hoping to stay longer & enjoy extra drinks, sadly we paid our bill, left after 1 drink & then went back to our accommodation, they miss the point… if they look after you … u stay & buy more drinks & say it was a great experience… or if it’s greedy & miserable… for an extra two tablespoons of sour cream & Guacamole & u tell other people how great it was, or you go home & say it was miserable & you don’t go back 🤷‍♀️…. Very sad .. first impressions are EVERYTHING… you shaft somebody the first time & they tell 20 people how bad the service was … or for two tablespoons extra food, how generous the meal was & tell twenty people … these people they think they’re smart shafting people, they are NOT smart, short term are greedy & have NO business sense, people don’t recommend & they don’t come back… very sad, we were looking forward to a great, not to be missed restaurant, instead a ten minute exitMore

Whilst driving along the coast of Oahu today, my wife felt like a quick bite and wanted to stop by this restaurant. As we entered, the worker at the front counter was very friendly and guided us with our order (as we’re well out of...town). We ended up ordering beef nachos (as well as a north shore tacos singlet my wife wanted which were on display at the entrance). The food came out quickly and was a big serving. I ended up sharing with my wife as I wasn’t too hungry but she wasn’t able to finish the whole serving. The food itself was the best tasting Mexican we’ve had so far during our stay in Hawaii. There was plenty of flavour and cheese although minimal beef, guacamole, sour cream and salsa. A bit on the dearer side as the meal with a drink was around $22USD. We didn’t realise the food trucks were ahead and were too full to try these out so not sure if these would be better value.More

We ate dinner at North Shore Tacos during our trip to Oahu for vacation. The service was good and the food was good. Make sure to get the fish tacos - they were great!

Staff is friendly. Food is over priced and highly over seasoned. My husband and I had a chicken quesadilla, nachos, and fish tacos that were all too salty.

Let’s start at the beginning - with a lilikoi margarita. Oh, yeah. Oh, my! Off the charts good! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! We followed this with a really delicious meal. The burritos - especially the sweet pork - were packed full and very tasty. The pineapple tikis...(yeah, I know, after the lilikoi margarita? But you only live once!), though expensive, were a yummy experience. And the coconut flan was the perfect ending. North Shore Tacos is a gem worth visiting. Especially for the lilikoi margaritas!More

I loved North Shore Tacos! Always a place you must stop while in Hawaii! Great dressing on the tacos and highly recommend sweet pork! I’ve been twice and both times were 5 star visits! Great margaritas!

We came across this place by accident and enjoyed the food. Had a mix of fish and shrimp tacos and actually preferred the shrimps. The pineapple drink was really good! It was expensive, we were definitely in beyond hungry vacation mode when ordering, but we...did enjoy our meal.More

Overpriced and generic food. Chicken was extremely dry This food tasted like it was thrown together in 5 minutes zapped in a microwave. Disgusting. For the outrageous price and basic food, your better skipping this spot and going to a local food truck more north...that has better quality and quantity.More

This place might be a good option if you absolutely don’t have any concern for cost or value. I was stunned when I saw the prices, given that yes, I’m in Hawaii, but this isn’t exactly Waikiki, either. Thinking I had to get something because...I’d driven a long time, I ordered ONE fish taco, which was reasonably good and about average size, but I’m now $8 poorer (for ONE taco), and not exactly full. There were only a few customers midday on a Sunday, which is probably a reflection of the prices. They’d do much more volume if they came down to a competitive price point, and I think they’d end up being much more successful.More

If I could give this place half a star I would. We are easy to please and generally write good reviews. We paid $62 for nachos, a burrito and two drinks. The drinks were supposed to have double shots in them. They tasted more like...Shirley Temples. There was absolutely no alcohol in them. We questioned the staff and they insisted there were two shots in each drink. We paid $20 a piece for non alcoholic drinks. My nachos only had meat on one chip. The pico de gallo was a small teaspoon full. Don’t throw your money away, go somewhere else.More

Yeah, I didn't think the place was all that - all that being the hype that this restaurant has the best fish taco on the island. The one they served me wasn't. I got mine ala carte, and I think for $7 with tax it...should have been a lot bigger and of better quality. It was actually a bit watery for some reason with its few tiny cubes of fish covered and overwhelmed by the tortilla and lettuce. Now I also got a chips and salsa that wasn't too bad. Their pineapple salsa was actually pretty good. I'm always coming around the North Shore, and I'll just pass by when I do.More

This was our go to spot while visiting North Shore. Everything we ordered from the menu was delicious. And the ginger lemonade was refreshing! They also don’t use msg in their food so that was helpful as we have an allergy to it in our...family.More

The food was ok, I would say it’s not worth the hype. Our order came out wrong, the wait was long, and the prices seem a bit excessive for the quality/it being a food truck. We had the quesadilla which was good and the Chicken...Burrito with green sauce (we ordered beef nachos) which was pretty mediocre.More
