The sister location for Jawz food truck isn't much to look at. It's easy to miss but if you're headed to any of the beaches in the Makena area, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the bright yellow food truck parked on the side of the road. The tacos are fresh and absolutely reflective of fresh, easy, Hawaiian... More

For the price, the fish tacos were very good. One of the locals recommended the place to us, Not much ambiance but you get what you pay for. The owner served us and was very friendly. We will go again!

I sample fish tacos wherever I go and these were some of the least impressive I have come across. Single tortilla and I couldn't even see the fish when I looked. Goes to say that I couldn't taste it either. Smoothie was good. Was the food truck at Makena park.

We stopped here after a long day at Big Beach. We had the combo where we got a fish taco, pork, & chicken taco. All of them were average. Nothing the write home about, but they weren't bad either. They are a little pricey for what you get, but it is nice to be able to grab lunch right there... More

This was a one one woman show, and she clearly could have used some help. Service was slow at an off-peak time. We (4 of us) placed our order and were told to wait & she'd give us a wave when it was ready. After a while waiting in our car, we walked up to find out she thought we... More

My wife and I stopped by the Jawz food truck at Big Beach (Oneloa). Typically, fish tacos should come with two tortillas, these don't. That being said they were just okay. The staff is friendly so nothing against them. It's just that the tacos aren't as good as Coconut's Fish Cafe. We did however get a large bottle of water... More

At these off their food truck.Fish tacos were amazing. A little pricey but amazing. Went to the restaurant on Sunday before our flight only to find out they are closed on Sunday so make sure you get your fix the rest of the days.

We tried the Jawz truck parked in the Makena (Big Beach) parking lot since my husband was hungry for lunch. We are perhaps the least picky eaters on earth and sincerely tend to eat things like from the 7-11 when on road trips; top ramen, hot dogs, pre-pack sandwiches, whatever. Like, we don't care. It's food. You put it in... More
