Da Crack has some tasty (and heavy) Mexican food that was so good we ate there 3 times. The food was prepared fresh and was well worth the wait. The shrimp was tender and the Ahi flavourful. We loved the wasabi sour cream. Definitely an excellent value for a fulfilling meal

Great take out, beans, rice, fish, etc. Small kitchen so offerings are amazing considering. Fresh guacamole and pico. Call to order or you may have to wait in line.

If you like grabbing some excellent mexican-island hybrid dishes without having to dress up and sit in a fancy restaurant, this is an excellent alternative in the Poipu area. The portions are large, and we've always been happy with our orders. We live in Poipu and eat their food often.

Get the Ahi bowl and you will not be disappointed . Locales mainly go here but if your a smart tourist you will stop . It is a take out or sit outside place .

My wife & I love Mexican, we stopped here specifically because of the good reviews we read here on TA. It is literally a hole in the wall beside an aging grocery store, I normally wouldn't have given it a chance but I'm glad we stopped in. My wife & I split a mexican bowl that was a good amount...

Awesome Poke bowls and burriots. Little hole in the wall stand, small bench seating for just a few folks out in front. The bowls and quality of food is fantastic. One of those small local gems. Order thru the window and magic comes out a few minutes later. Pick you carbs, pick your protein, pick your toppings, pick your sauce.... More

For our last lunch on Kauai, we decided to try Da Crack. Don't be in a hurry -- it takes awhile to order. Food comes relatively quickly after ordering. Very good.

Best mexican across all of Hawaii. Loved the nachos, burritos, and fish tacos. We loved it so much we went back 2 more times.

We stopped by the grocery store next door to pick up a few items and saw the line for this place. We decided to pick up a quick dinner and we were not disappointed. Burrito was excellent and great portions. Highly recommend for an easy bite!

I had Da Crack's bowl with the daily fish. My wife had the bowl with grilled shrimp. Both were very tasty. The portions are good size. An excellent value. We plan to dine at Da Crack the next time we're on Kauai.

Thank Arthur W
