“Best fish tacos on Kauai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Fresh ahi tacos, so yummy, jus thinking about it makes me hungry, you get two huge tacos with the ahi, Pico de gallo, lettuce and the bomb chipotle cream sauce, so delicious, and you get rice, beans and guacamole, for only $11, it's truly a bargain, cheaper then some breakfast joints, you gotta go check this place out, you'll just keep going back for more!

“Tacos are my favorite food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

This was the place that I was looking forward to eating at, the most, in kauai. I loooooove al pastor tacos & these did not disappoint. We have already been there twice. The lady that runs the truck is so nice & gracious, she even recognized us from our previous visit a few days earlier. Great customer service, girl! I like the simplicity of sitting outside at a no-frills table drinking canned guava juice & feeling the ocean breeze. So much better than being stuck inside, I mean, didn't we come to kauai to enjoy the outdoors? :). The lady, I'm sorry, I don't know your name, brings the food out to you & follows up to ensure that everything is alright. And boy, is it good! I've had the al pastor tacos twice & 1 fresh ahi taco. They are both insane. My huz had a grilled al pastor burrito & a steak one, he enjoyed both, but preferred the al pastor, but who wouldn't? That meat is what my taco dreams are made of. Can't wait to go back, maybe today! Thank you al pastor tacos. Best food on the island, in my world, anyways. Xoxo.

“Terrific tacos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

We had lunch here when ahi was the catch of the day. We each tried fish tacos and al pastor tacos. They were great. The sauce on the fish taco enhanced the flavor of the fish and didn't cover it up. The al pastor was just the right amount of spice. Two taco shells were given with each taco, so was very easy to put half topping on each and enjoy without as much mess. Loved it and will go back again for sure.

“It's Taco Time!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

We had the al pastor tacos and the chicken tacos, and both were awesome. The al pastor was spicy and sweet and the chicken was moist and delicious. The staff was very friendly. As for the price the plates are $10-$12 not bad for Kauai. Would definitely eat here again.

“Best Fish Tacos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012 via mobile

Went to this cute little food truck, I had the fresh ahi tacos, they were so good, fresh seared ahi, so succulent, seasoned perfectly, topped with juicy Pico de gallo, shredded lettuce and the best chipotle creama in the world, it was the most amazing experience, and to top it all off, the owners a sweetheart! Can't wait to go back!
