We enjoyed the fish burritos which were served with grilled ahi that day. Fantastic flavor. Price is a bit high considering this is a simple place - you get your own water, outside seating is on stools overlooking the road. But you come here for the food. And then you can shop in the Quicksilver store next door.

Pricey for what it is, seems like restaurant pricing for basically a food truck in a room. Food was OK, the people working there were probably the best thing about this place. If you venture down the road to the Princeville shopping center you will find much better food at definitely better value for money. There is an Asian Fusion and Mexican place next door to each other there, with outdoor seating, 5 more mins driving from Tropical Taco.

Food is OK, get the fish tacos. Usually not as crowded as other places. And maybe that says something.

We were staying in Princeville, so a short drive down the hill into Hanalei is easy and worth it. The fish tacos were among the best I've had -- fresh and flavorful, and a great value for Hawaii where everything is a bit more expensive.

Been around forever, locals love it, food is fabulous. I go every time I am in Kauai, sometimes twice or more a trip!
