Being from Southern California, we wouldn't have expected to find such delicious Mexican food in Hawaii but Lucy's is fantastic!!! Wish Marlene and her family would move to Pasadena! The grilled chicken was perfect, the cheese enchilada superb and the shrimp fajita taco out of this world! We'll be back!!

We drove to Lucy's from the Volcano area because there was limited dinner options. So glad we made the trek to Lucy's. Our family of four each had a burrito. Yum. One of the best burritos I have ever had. Three of us couldn't finish and packaged our leftovers to snack on the next day. Very friendly staff. You have... More

We live in Hilo and have watched this restaurant grow from day one. Marlene, Tomas and their daughter Lucy not only serve great food, they are active in supporting Hilo and the people of Hilo. The food is fresh, local and delicious. Homemade salsa and chips are top notch. The food is authentic taqueria. These folks know what they are... More

The food was great. The only 'compliant' is that its very large portions. If you get a burrito, sharing is not a bad idea. Great food though

How did it take me so long to discover this place? Lucy's is the perfect taco-Mexican stop in downtown Hilo. Service is excellent! They take your order at the counter and were incredibly helpful as my husband and I asked questions because we could not figure out what we wanted to try. The menu is huge and has pork, chicken,...

Excellent Food at Lucy's. We found this place on a recent visit to Hilo and I wish we would have found it sooner in our trip so we could have gone back to try other dishes. You order from the counter for both food and drinks but they do bring your meal when finished cooking to your table. They had... More

They serve very nice Mexican food with efficient service. It is always very crowded, but I do not need to wait for a long time. The food is also very nice with free salsa sauce table. Yummy!

Had the fajita plate... DELISH! Can't believe I actually ate the entire thing because it was HUGE!!!! Free chips and salsa... I swear they were homemade chips. Yummy!!! I had 3 margaritas (Shame, shame) and my bill was only $25. I can't believe 3 margaritas and fajitas for that price! PERFECT!!! And the people there were really fun!!!

If you want excellent Mexican food in Hilo, make a stop at Lucy's. A local and casual place with a great menu. We had the steak burrito-wet and it was excellent. A huge portion for a very reasonable price.
