This place was awesome! It is parked right by the pier and has a tent with 2 small tables and chairs to eat. It was pretty crowded and it took about 20 minutes to get our food, but it was worth the wait. The best by far were the carne asada tacos. So delicious!

Stopped here based on someone's recommendation. Weren't dissapointed, we all had different taco's and were all happy. My favourites were the fish and Carne Asada. It's a trailer next to the beach near the pier, casual surroundings but good food.

Good, fresh Mexican food prepared to order; I enjoyed the kalua pork burrito, while my wife had the carne asada tacos. This is a very popular food truck, with a wait even in the driving rain.

After a couple hours of kayaking, we enjoyed eating burritos from Pat's Taqueria. Yummy and were big enough to share.

Really great food, no atmosphere because it's a truck with a place to sit at plastic picnic table under a tent. Takes a bit to get your order-but it is made fresh so it's worth the wait. The food tastes so good the portions seem a bit small. I think most adults would want two items, even my kids eat... More

My family had food for lunch from Pat's last week. My husband had the kalua pork taco and carne asada taco. $4 bucks each. I had a veggie burrito for $7. Our two kids shared a kid's bean cheese and rice burrito which was pretty small, kids size. I would have ordered two had I known it would be so... More

If you like beef or pork, this is the food truck for you- can't go wrong with either choice. Located in Hanalei bay, perfect lunch for sitting on the pier and soaking in the sun and scenic views. Loved the tortillas too!

Good beach tacos at the beach. Because it is just a little trailer in the beach parking lot, it takes a few minutes to get your food. It is not just sitting around waiting to be purchased. Probably the best fish tacos on Kauai.

Best fish taco's??? Not! The best thing about this is its convenient if you're starving and don't want to leave the beach.
