This food truck stand is the cutest little spot with the best Mexican food that you will find in Kauai (TRUST ME) my gf and I tried 3 different Mexican restaurants and this one hit the spot! We tried the Sopes and enchiladas (that were...so good) and we are definitely going back to try the tacos and the burritos 🤤 I highly recommend this place, you won’t be disappointed! It’s a family owned business. One of the nicest people I’ve met so far!More

I have been going to Happy Taco since they opened up. Mahalo for many years of outstanding food and service. To say that this is the best Mexican food in Kapaa would sell it short, not only is it that, this place would make a...serious rfun as best Mexican food on Kauai. The tourists are right and I usually don't agree with them, but all the 5-star ratings here are correct. MahaloMore

This meal was so fresh and delicious. We traveled back to enjoy a second time for our ‘last meal’ on the island before our flight. Amazing safe gluten free homemade corn tortillas and chips. Ceviche was the freshest I’ve ever had and the fish tacos...were outstanding. 5 stars. Eat here.More

My 17 year old daughter and I stopped here for a late lunch and the food is delicious. We had fajitas and chips and salsa and loved it. This truck is cute and colourful and we think this is the best Mexican food on Kauai.

We opted for traditional vegetarian Mexican (no carrots or broccoli). It was absolutely delicious, in an adorable charming setting. The owners were very accommodating and we came back a few more times to enjoy some other menu items! Tacos were amazing, as were enchiladas!

We had the fish tacos (mahi mahi). The fish was grilled to perfection served with a warm corn tortilla. It had a zesty, crunchy slaw with a creamy dressing. Green and red sauce on the table. We ate at the picnic table under an umbrella...of greenery. We will definitely go back.More

Fabulous parked Food Truck located in Kapaa! The Truck is located in the middle of shopping and tents, which makes it a prime location to have a lot of fun. We ordered the fish tacos, chicken tacos, and homemade hibiscus juice. They have covered picnic...tables that have some overgrown plants, which makes it cool and fun to sit under. The owner hand makes the tortillas, and you can tell. The flavor of the tacos and tortillas are so fresh and delicious. If you are looking to do some shopping and have lunch, stop here! If you are in the mood for authentic mexican food, stop here. If you are looking for some friendly natives, talk to the workers, they are kind, talented, and know good food!!More

We weren't impressed with the food from this food truck as it didn't have much flavor. I wouldn't go back again.
