After a couple hours of kayaking, we enjoyed eating burritos from Pat's Taqueria. Yummy and were big enough to share.

Really great food, no atmosphere because it's a truck with a place to sit at plastic picnic table under a tent. Takes a bit to get your order-but it is made fresh so it's worth the wait.
The food tastes so good the portions seem a bit small. I think most adults would want two items, even my kids eat 2-3 items each, but they are teenagers.
It's easy to find in the parking lot of Hanalei Pier, you practically drive into the truck. Watch the short hours, closes at 3 sharp, much to the dismay of passing hungry people.
The tent does not have a view of anything really, but it would be super easy to walk two minutes to the pier and eat with your feet dangling off the edge with a million dollar view.

My family had food for lunch from Pat's last week. My husband had the kalua pork taco and carne asada taco. $4 bucks each. I had a veggie burrito for $7. Our two kids shared a kid's bean cheese and rice burrito which was pretty small, kids size. I would have ordered two had I known it would be so small, that was $4.
All the food was tasty, no complaints. Drinks were $2 each and they had sodas or those Hawaiian juices in a can. I ordered right when they opened at noon and the wait was less than 10 minutes, but they can get pretty busy at times.
The gal at the counter was nice, but not friendly. I have experienced that with numerous businesses on the island, they are kind of indifferent.
We are from California where good food, especially tacos and burritos are not hard to find. That being said, most of the food in Hanalei is pretty mediocre, and this place is not. Very tasty, a little pricy, but we
would definitely go back!
Get your food and sit on the beach and eat, or grab a table at the end of the pier if you need some shade.

If you like beef or pork, this is the food truck for you- can't go wrong with either choice. Located in Hanalei bay, perfect lunch for sitting on the pier and soaking in the sun and scenic views. Loved the tortillas too!
