We stopped by this food truck shortly after landing from the states. The fish was fresh Ahi and quite tasty. The meal was 2 fish tacos, rice and beans. Everything tasted great. The wild chickens are roaming about but did not seem to bother anyone....More

I have eaten here many times. The food is as good as Mexican food trucks get and better than many restaurants. Friendly quick and great location on the north side of KAPAA set for heading to the north shore. Highly recommend.

I was so looking forward to trying this place out. Living in San Diego, I practically live off street tacos and love the gritty, food truck experience. However, while to service was excellent and the portions were huge, the food was totally bland. We had...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
