“Bear Flag come to Hanalei”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

way over priced. got the tropical grilled fish taco. fish was over cooked. $13. no tasty salsa, shredded lettuce and refried beans. I can get two fresh fish tacos that taste way better at bear flag for five bucks.

“Super fresh and tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

This is a cool , small tacqueria that goes outside of the box in offering fish and chips with taro chips! The fish tacos were VERY fresh. The burritos were large. Service was pleasant. Ask to use the complimentary bottle of fresh salsa- very good. Prices were a bit less than the average Kauai fare, but the food was better than most meals we ate while on Kauai. Sit outside for some great people watching!

I've been eating at Tropical Taco since it was a VW van parked in a lot and the food is still amazing! Definitely recommend it for lunch.

“Good breakfast burrito!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

Not many choices for breakfast in the area, some friends told us not to go to Wake Up Cafe, so we popped into tropical taco and it was great!

“Ok lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

The quantity is large, taste is average without much spice or heat, rather bland. Cheap food for the quantity, pricey for the quality. My wife had the special taco which was bland, my fish taco was ok.
