This little place is great! Right off the main highway in Kapaa, easy to get to, food was delicious. There are a couple other food trucks in the same location so if you are with people who want something other than Mexican style cuisine it is easy for them to walk to a different truck. I got the ahi tacos... More

I read about this food truck in one of the food magazines. So when we were walking along the ocean and I saw a bunch of food trucks, we thought we should try it. We had one ahi taco between the two of us for the flavor and sure wish we had more room for more. Super tasty.

They serve different fish depending on what's fresh caught that day! We had tacos with a wonderful chipotle cream sauce. After several days of hunting we finally found the best fish tacos… Another couple was telling us they are local and this is their favorite place to eat

Sent husband to get lunch while I sunned at Kealea Beach. He was back in 15 minutes with fresh ahi tacos. The ahi was coated in a flavorful mayo mix and the double layered tortillas were stuffed with avocado tomato and big chunks of ahi. The accompaniment was beans and a scoop of rice. The spicy salsa verde on the... More

Was a little leery of food trucks, but my husband was eager to try this one. He ordered the ahi tacos and I had the steak and mushroom quesadilla. Both were delicious! The food is cooked to order so it takes a little longer than a fast food place, but well worth the wait! There were 3 other food trucks... More

Had the ahi tuna tacos and they were so delicious that I had to go back 2 more times while we were on the island. Cooked to order, hot and delicious. My hubby also had the ahi tuna burrito and it was delicious as well. Highly recommend a stop at this food truck while visiting the island.

Apparently dispite the name the fish taco I hear is their best. Duh your in Hawaii but my daughter who is used to us traveling to Mexico begged us to get them. They were ok but it is not Mexico.
