Great food at a reasonable price (the reviewer who mentioned price hasn't tried to eat anywhere else on the south side). A bargain! Yes, it's a food truck....they are turning out quality food in cities all over the country. Don't let that turn you away....More

We had a good little dinner here on 1/10/16. The service is efficient. You get to eat outside and it is so pleasant. Lots peeps eating there too. The fish tacos were very good. We'd go back.

At here twice, had the Barbacoa tacos, chicken quesadillas the first time and the shrimp taco plate and a Barbacoa taco the second time. Impress with the food and the service. Great food from a food truck. Will definitely eat here again.

Maybe we just caught the guy on an off night, but our experience was pretty dismal. We stopped by around 6ish one evening and were the only ones there -- no one else in the lot. I parked the car parallel to the cart in...More

Hidden behind the shops in Koloa is a great Mexican food truck. Always good and now there is shaded seating.

We ate lunch at this food truck during recent visit to Kauai. All in our party had the fish tacos - we enjoyed so much we returned again. I highly recommend. The food is delicious, fresh and plentiful. Enjoy!!

To a lot of people, tacos means grilled meat - whether it's fish, chicken or beef. That char gives the meat a distinct taste. So I did not have the highest expectations when I tried the fish tacos here because the fish did not looked...More
