My husband & I have eaten at Frederico's in the Princeville food court on numerous occasions during our 2-month stay in Princeville. While at first glance the fast food joint is nothing to look at, inside or out, the food MORE than compensates for that humble ambiance.
We have only eaten lunch here, and for the life of me, I can't even break my habit out of the soft taco category! I know I'm missing some delicious options (tostadas, burritos, etc.,) but with several exotic soft tacos to choose from, that's what I end up ordering!
The counter area is very small, so be prepared to get squeezed at lunch time! I wish there was some other layout that would work, but the salsas and condiments are on the left as you enter, the counter on the right, and about 5 square feet separating the two!
Even so, I have been VERY happy with the delicious soft tacos I've tried here, which I get on a corn tortilla: grilled tofu and mushroom is perfect for vegans; garlic herb shrimp is excellent, and the carnitas divine! I also enjoyed the marinated pork tacos - I have yet to try the other selections, but would bet my last peso they would also be delicious! I was so impressed with the lunch I had the other day that I asked the gal ringing up the orders (and delivering them to the tables outside) to please tell the chefs, "Job well done! Delicious!"
The meat tacos are moist and succulent with juice! The shrimp taco is never overcooked or rubbery. The vegan taco absolutely satisfying. These entrees include rice and beans on the combo plate, and you will not leave the table unsatiated!
The price is reasonable for Kauai, too. Usually, the service is prompt and friendly, but we did have ONE experience where a different gal at the cash register was actually surly and seemed to take great delight in delaying our order. Yikes! On all other occasions, a different gal was at the cash register who was VERY helpful, friendly and hard-working.
