Okay Mexican food

Went here to eat while waiting for a late flight back to the mainland. There was only 1 other couple in the place but decided to give it a shot anyway. Chips & salsa were very good. I ordered the ground beef taco plate. The tacos were good and the taco shells were home made. Beans & rice on the... read more

Food is good Mexican and the chef is willing to accommodate dietary restrictions. Margaritas are really nice, too!

Atmosphere is sports bar and Mexican decor which was fine because we like watching soccer. Open air style is nice if there is a breeze, but food was not good. The surf and turf burrito was small and taste was ok. The enchilada was small, flat and had almost no meat and tasted awful. Tomale was ok. Over priced even... More

My wife and I gave this place a shot for lunch. We both agreed, it was the best Mexican food we've eaten (and we live in the Southwest ). The prices were fair and the service was outstanding. The salsa and chips served with the meal were also very good.

We're from California and so are the owners of this establishment. The food is ok. The tacos and salsa are bland tasting. The service was good and the staff is pleasant.

Decent food, nothing to write home about. Service was friendly and efficient. Good place to grab a bite if you're nearby, but i wouldn't go out of my way to eat here.

We stopped here on our last day in Kauai and needed a restaurant for dinner before going to the airport in Lihue. Disclaimer - we live in Texas and eat outstanding Mexican food at least once a week. This place was okay. The food is decent and it is nice to sit out on their patio. It would be a... More

They were nice enough to let the dog I was taking on a field trip from the Kauai Human Society (check it out!) sit outside with me. They also cooked my food with respect to my gluten sensitivity (although cross contamination doesn't bother me, so very sensitive celiac's may still have issues). The house margarita was tasty and buzz inducing,... More

We ate here twice because it was convenient and a good break from resort prices. The food is good, the restaurant clean, the service good with a smile. One server even got some ice and cold cloths for a diner who was have a heat stroke episode. BTW, the margaritas are also quite good.

We went there for dinner and went again for breakfast. I had an omelet with big huge chunks of avocado that was so good. I don't even love Mexican food but I would go there again.
