Very good tasting. Shrimp tacos for me and chicken for the wife. (They had run out of the fish). At a nicer restaurant I would expect to get two very small soft taco shell with each having three medium shrimp in them and pay $12. At a food truck I expected better. I had three times the shrimp for the... More

So we did a mini taco crawl (basically hit up as many taco places as we can) and found this one to be amazing! The amount of fish they put on the taco is pretty awesome (especially for $4.50). We went back a second time it was that good - and the woman that works it is super kind! I... More

We went here based on the reviews. We were not disappointed! We ordered the fish tacos and fish burritos. We were told the fish today was ahi tuna. Best tacos and burritos we ever had! Both were served with fresh guacamole and beans and rice. Yum!! Service was very quick and pleasant! We'll definitely return!

We stopped for tacos and it was certainly worth the visit! Delicious fresh ahi tuna tacos, shrimp tacos and chicken tacos all got rave reviews from our crowd. Rice and beans rounded out lunch. This food truck has outdoor tables with umbrellas. Great little stop for lunch

Nothing beats these fresh ahi tacos! The rice was very flavorful but the beans were bland in comparison. Will be back!

While driving around a very windy Kauai we stopped in at Tacos Al Pastor. I had fish tacos for the first time. Very fresh Mahi, cooked just right, served with all the trimmings. You can sit and enjoy your tacos at the tables by the truck or you can take a short amble and sit on the beach. Delicious meal... More

We had fish tacos at 3 locations near Kapaa. This was the favorite. The fish has the best ratio of fish and toppings. No crazy amount of slaw here. The al pastor was extremely flavorful. Two tacos rice and beans is plenty for a meal.

The fish tacos were excellent, as was the rice. I'm not a fan of the pinto beans and would have preferred refried. Also, the moas everywhere diminished the low key ambiance. Good, quick option!
