Found this spot a year ago and it was our first stop after getting off the plane. The ahi and shrimp tacos are fantastic. Friendly, quick service. We've eaten there several times on both trips and would return.

Best shrimp tacos! We had a great lunch as a family out of the snack wagon. The fish burrito was wonderful as was the shrimp tacos. The location by the beach is cool too. Loved it.

I will reiterate, this is the best taco truck in Kaua'i! I had their Pastor tacos which were absolutely delicious! A little logistical difference, as several of the food trucks have banded together (wagon train style), and the seating area is between all the trucks...More

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
