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.

We were so excited to try Lucy's based on the reviews, only to find that it was closed until July 5th. So much for the burrito the size of a baby.

Holy Guacamole!! Those burritos are massive! My boyfriend had no idea what he was getting into when he ordered the burrito grande. I kid you not, if you were to wrap that burrito up in a blankie, you would think it was a newborn baby. I got the traditional street tacos and they were really good! Loved the carne asada.... More

A bit more authentic that the average taqueria and unbelievably cheap. We stopped by just before closing and really enjoyed the food. We both ordered burritos and the portions were huge. You can definitely share.

You get plenty of food for reasonable prices. My 8 year old loved his tacos. The burritos were huge. Locals flowed in--some to eat in, some for takeout. We enjoyed our food and would eat here again.
