Short on atmosphere, BIG on flavor and value

Stopped here for lunch based on Tripadvisor reviews, and we were happy we did. The food is fresh, very reasonable, and the portions are huge. My husband and I shared the enchiladas with short rib meat - delicious! Our friends shared the breakfast burrito and they couldn't finish it all. The... read more

Delicious fish burrito and shrimp tacos! Around $14 for dinner, which was very reasonably priced. They also give you chips and salsa. Fun staff and great service! Small place, but we were seated and served very quickly!

Went as a family after a day exploring Kauai and were met with a clean modern space, friendly service, and wonderful food. Husband said the garlic Shrimp burrito was the best burrito he's had. Kids and adults alike were pleased. Portions were large - everyone took home leftovers for lunch the next day.

This cute store front restaurant does a good take on Mexican favorites. The servings were generous and we were offered $3 house margaritas the night we dined there. We were older than most of the youngish crowd, but we were treated warmly and received good service.

We stopped by for lunch on our way back from Hanalei Bay. This was by far the best fish tacos we have had on the island. The combo of flavors, textures and freshness was wonderful. Had the ahi and Ono taco. My husband had the ahi tostado which he also enjoyed.

Try the al pastor tacos and the fish of the day tacos. Really fresh and full of flavor. Margherita Mondays too! Good menu selection and friendly staff.

Wow! What a great meal on the island. Be prepared to wait as they are a busy place. We waited for a table for twenty or so minutes. Once we were seated it wasn't a long wait to order and get our food. We were "wow'd". Don't miss this place. :)

We decided to try this little Mexican restaurant for a change of pace. It's a little hard to find as its tucked into a strip mall next to a Big Save and a Pacific bank. We had the fish tacos and they were outstanding. Mine were the blackened Mahi and my wife had the seared Ahi. Both delicious and perfectly... More

This is a nice, inexpensive option, however it is rather small. The food was good and the service was fast even tho they were very busy. We sat outside so they were not able to serve alcohol. So, if you want a beer or margarita you will have to wait for an inside table. I would go there again.
