We had the fresh ahi tacos and they were great. Better than other fish tacos we had on the island. But fish was cooked beyond medium rare and wish it had been pulled off the grill a little sooner. We sampled the pastor, or pork,...More

The steak tacos were way better than the fish tacos. The tuna tasted a little overdone. The steak ones had good flavor. Service was good.

Everyone raves about the fist tacos, but I found them to not be so good. I definitely have had better ones. Seemed high priced for a food truck.

Good food fast. Reasonable prices. Fries were yummy! My son had chicken taco bowl and my daughter had the fries with steak (forget the exact name) and they both loved it.

Try their fish tacos made with fresh ahi. They grill it with a little salt and pepper. So tasty. One taco stuffed with fish is about $4.75. I opted for the meal which came with 2 tacos rice and beans and some guacamole for $11.50....More

The fresh ahi tacos were amazing!!! fantastic flavors and right off the highway/main drag. We've tried every taco there, and second to the ahi is the lengua! (surprised us too, but it is a MUST try!) Great service!!

As other posters have mentioned, it really depends on where you are. There is strong wave action. Check with your hotel as to the safety of the beach in front of the hotel. Many area are not good for non-swimmers/waders... More
