Yes, its that good. Da Crack is just a tiny mexican take-out restaurant with modern sensibilities. Very, very informal and casual place and you'll order at a window. Food is delicious and you can pick your ingredients, so for families like ours its perfect. Black beans or pinto beans, type of meat, vegetables - choice of cabbage, olives, onions, tomatoes, jalapenos, etc., corn or flour tortillas, and you can choose a burrito, taco, or bowl format. Food is very fresh and some evenings you'll be surprised that they are out of fish, pork, or other items. Unfortunately, they were out of fish tonight, but had a couple of killer garlic shrimp tacos with chipotle sauce. Modest wait and you can eat on the benches in front or take it back to you house/hotel. For a relatively inexpensive meal ($10), you can't go wrong.

“Good Mexican chow”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Always liked the plate lunch place that used to be here. Now like the Mex carry out that took it's place. Got a schrimp burrito that was a meal by itself for about $10. Not servered with side dishes, everything is inside. Rice, cabbage, beans, etc. There were about 5 seasoned schrimp.

Soooo good - we had the fish tacos and burritos. Once again, follow the locals to find the best places to eat! Wish we would have found it earlier in our stay.

Exceptionally great Mexican Food, it is all takeout, look for the yellow submarine between Poipu and Koloa.

“Good value for money”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

We were recommended this place by a local. It's literally a hole in the wall, but don't let that put you off. My husband bought a chicken burrito from there - he asked them to make it as hot as possible. It wasn't hot for him, but he did like the taste of it. They make it fresh so you'll wait a few minutes for it. When we went there was no line up so it wasn't a big deal. The woman who took our order was really friendly and gave me that holiday vibe :) Very affordable.. check this place out if you feel like having a take-out with quality (and big portions!).
