Large shrimp and a tasty lettuce and cilantro filling with a sauce make these very tasty and filling tacos a nice lunch meal. Price was a reasonable 2 tacos for $10. This place wss a nice find.

My teenagers eat a lot of burritos, and this place was their favorite ever. It begins with the incredible tortilla and quality meat/fish used. You can't return to chain Mex after this. The service is quick, polite, and warm. Will return!

Good service, good staff. We ordered the taco plates and sat outside, although they also have indoor seating. Nice atmosphere, and the fish tacos were really good.

Al Pastor burrito was recommended and did not disappoint. One of the best burritos I have ever had. Service was very friendly.

Grilled Ono (wahoo) on a bed of lettuce with guacamole and a spicy pink sauce made dinner a feast. Open air dining was perfect.

These guys know what they're doing, just good Mexican food. It's in the local radar, a regular stop for good grinds.

Paco's Tacos was highly recommended by someone we met while at the beach. He is also a bartender at one of the Paco's Taco restaurants. We visited the Kapaa location because it was the closest to our hotel. There was one other family eating there...More

The fish tacos were bland. There were 2 layers of soft tortillas, one inside of the other, and they were not cooked or browned. Would not go there again.

We spent $27 on two entrees. We were pleased by the generous amount of food given. It was more than what we could eat at one meal. Delicious!
