We stopped here while visiting Kauai. The food is very good and atypical of the general restaurant food one would stop at. Great service and small picnic tables outside to eat. Prices are comparable to other food trucks on the island.

Saw this truck and stopped. Great shrimp and fish Hawaiian plate and nice cold drinks. Friendly staff. Fast service. Picnic tables on site. Worth the stop!

After swimming all day and laying in the sun we treated our selves and the grandsons to battered shrimp and fries, and they were some of the best I have tried. Do your self a favour and try them the van is situated in the car park diagonally across from the Hilton Hawaiian Village Hotel on the beach side.

This is a great place for a "snack". It's located right in the middle of old town Koloa. Friendly people, good food and they will customize your order without any trouble! We will return.

This is a must stop for anyone looking for some great food on Kauai. Jo and her girls kill it every time. The food always tastes great and I love thier personalities and their smiles. The Braddah Burger and The Volcano Burger are great. Whatever you get the tacos, the garlic shrimp, the grilled fish, the pastele stew,....... It's all... More

Freshly made burgers and tacos - eat on a picnic table under a giant Banyan Tree. Great way to enjoy Kauai. I had the three taco combo and I can't really say which was my favorite as all were excellent: fresh local grilled fish, spicy shrimp, and tasty pork. My wife loved her fish sandwich, and my son-in-law thought the... More

This food truck is parked on the location of the historic Koloa Bay Plantation. Our meals were fantastic. We had the Taco Trio and the Kalua pork with cabbage. Both were delicious. Also we had a fun and informative visit with the owner.

Hubby said these were the best tacos he had on island. He never took me there and I think he wanted to keep it for himself. ;-) I will make him take me on the next trip. You end up eating lots of tacos while you are on island so its nice to find good ones. He said the fish... More

The truck owners are personable, the food is exactly as advertised and was one of the best food places on this island, no question! They actually care about their service and quality which was sadly not the case with the rest of Kauai. Recommend.

It is getting harder to find good local food so we were pleased the Kauai Food Truck was still located in the park in Old Koloa Town. The butterfish special plate lunch was delicious and filling. There are lots of options to try. Seating is picnic style on tables within the park, complete with chickens to offer accompaniment to the... More
