Easy to miss, tucked away in a small strip mall, but well worth the effort. Large variety of choices and everything is made with care. One taco enough to fill most.

Gun goofy place in this beach town. Most of shrimp and fish but meat tacos are available too. There sint anything but tacos and they are good. The tortillas are made fresh on premise. There are tables inside and some outside toomey. Can be crowded. Can always eat in your car although be aware of running juices.

We found this place accidentally and were pleasantly surprised. Hawaii has a lot of good taco stands, and this the best one we found. The restaurant itself is a no-frills storefront with limited seating, but the place has some funky decorations, the food is great, the portions are large, and the prices are reasonable. Their spicy options were very tasty,... More

First stop on the island and will definitely be going back! Hawaiian pork tacos are awesome! Flavorful and filling. Highly recommend.

Everyone has their idea of what makes a good taco. Unlike most places where an order comes with several tacos, their tacos come one to an order. These are massive and youll need both hands. Personally I think they are way to big and they cram way to much stuff in them. Im a believer that less-is-more, however this is... More

Because of the long wait, we had to come back another night. The tacos we ordered were fusion style with raw fish. Definitely worth the wait.

After having a bad chicken taco experience at the island tacos, i still gave a shot to this place which again had a rave reviews about the food. this time the risk was little low as i knew what to not have from my last experience but still i went for the soft chicken taco just to compare. So for... More

From the "Mexican" food that I had in Kauai, I thought this place was closer to true Mexican food than most of the other places on the island ... not that any of it was not good. The ingredients seemed very fresh and were combined well, with some good spiciness. Definitely hits the spot if you want a flavorful and... More

This small shop slowly produces great food. We didn't get there until late in our trip, so didn't have a chance to go a second time...but I really wish we had. The individual Tacos are enough for a mid-sized hunger, and thus it can be a quite cheap ($5-$8) dinner in this tourist area. And, oh, it is yummy food.... More
