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.

Stopped at the food trucks in Kapaa and all decided on fish tacos... We were not disappointed! Grilled ahi tacos were delicious. They load them up with a ton of fish, and the price is reasonable ($11.50-two tacos, beans, rice). My son said that his...More
