Red Hot Mama's restaurant on Kauai

Red Hot Mama's Price: $5 to $11.50 Scoping it out: Touring the island? Before you hit the Napali Coast, pick up a snack at Red Hot Mama's in the far north corner of Kauai, almost at the point where Kuhio Highway fades away into the cliffs. This hole-in-the-wall stand, next to Wainiha General Store, features fresh-Mex burritos and tacos to go, with an emphasis on organic foods. We loved ... big chunks of chicken and beef in the burritos. We didn't love ... the grumpy kitchen staff. Red Hot Mama's, 56607 Kuhio Highway (Route 56), Wainiha; (808) 826-7266
