Good food truck. Lady taking payment was a little unpleasant. Would recommend Al Pastor before this though when traveling back from Princeville however was still good.

Whenever we are at Hanalei Pier we have lunch at Pat's. We love everything on the menu with the Kalua Pork and Carne Asada burritos as 2 favorites. You can go a week at Hanalei Pier by just mixing up different combinations at Pat's.

Having always stayed near the pier on kauai vacations, I've been here numerous times. Food is consistently good and hits the spot after a day of water activities on the bay. Only open from 12-3 and is the only food option near the pier.

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...More
