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.

How do they keep on getting high ratings for this dingy hole in the wall taco stand? The name and sign outside is a low class image of a derrière and if that induces one to buy food there go for it.

A hidden treasure that is so popular, if you drive too fast you'll miss it. And, you will miss the best Mexican comfort food on the island!

Food was great! Was starving in the evening and wanted something quick with reasonable portions and this hit the spot! Ordered two bowls with fish, brown rice, sour creme, and all the sauces! It hit the spot, definitely recommend!

Went for lunch. Had nachos, pork quesadilla and a fish taco (marlin). Nachos were a tiny serving for $8.99. Not impressed, chips weren't anything to write home about. Fish taco was decent but definitely lacking in quantity of fish for $12.99. Nothing special about the taste. The best of the day was the pork quesadilla. Glad my teen so ordered... More

After a long day of hiking, we arrived back to Poipu hungry and decided to stop at Da Crack because it was highly rated. As expected, the place is a small little kiosk window where you order your food with no seating. The menu is simple (choice of taco, burrito or bowl) and you simply select what you want and... More

This is a great stop. You walk up to the window order your lunch and sit on a bench. Nothing fancy but certainly hits the spot when hungry. We stopped her twice as it was super easy and satisfying! Great portion sizes too.

We really enjoyed the food...but it is QUITE expensive ($12 for a burrito) and very slow (20 minutes to get our food, after waiting in line another 10 minutes). Oh, and the only place to sit is a couple benches and rough outdoor tables shared with another restaurant (inside the market) next door.
