Tropical Taco

5088 Kuhio Hwy.
Halele'a Building
Hanalei, HI, 96714, United States
TEL: (808) 827-8226

What started out as a taco wagon, this eatery evolved after many years into a fixed restaurant in the Halele'a Building about a mile from the Hanalei Bridge on Kuhio Highway. Serving lunch and dinner every day except Sunday, Tropical Taco has indoor tables in its white-and-wood interior with an outline of the original taco wagon surrounding the lunch counter, and outdoor seating on the veranda. Tacos, burritos, and Fat Jacks (10-inch wraps) are served with lemonade and soda. Fish tacos come with local fish grilled or beer-batter fried.

Insider Tip:

Walk up to the counter to place your order, be sure to have cash, and expect a wait while your food is made to order.
