Had the Baja Ono and Ono Grilled tacos. Fabulous! Try the different sauces with them: chipotle and tomatillo. Quick service with a smile, and you can BYOB!

We had the happy nachos which were a really generous portion. Grilled ono tacos and the soft shell crab tacos were excellent as well as the chicken taco salad. Great service and happy hour mai tais! The fried ice cream topped off a great meal.

We ate at three different Paco’s locations during our stay in Kaua’i. Everyone of them was excellent! Delicious food, large portions, good service and reasonably priced. Very sad we don’t have one back home.

We visited paco's in Kapa'a yesterday on our way north. Ordered the two of the 3-taco special: Al Pastor & grilled ONO fish. They were authentic and jammed packed with meat, flavorful, and filling. A recommend. Nice service, through we chose to take out.

We had lunch here. Fish tacos were great. Our group also ordered the chimichanga. That too was good but the rice was bland. Indoor/ outdoor seating. Service was prompt.
