Plenty of food

Excellent slushies prepared each day. You order inside and the waitress brings out your orders outside to the food court. It is loaded with chickens, roosters and wild birds all waiting for you to drop a piece. If we go again, we will take them to go and eat at condo. Nachos were good and burritos... read more

"Fresh" is the key word, including the cornbread and salsa condiments. Lots of value and quantity for the price!

This was a nice change from all the seafood and Hawaiian food. We each had two tacos and they were just right.

We arrived at Kauai late and after driving for 50 min from the airport to get to our hotel in Hanalei Bay, we were ready for a quick bite to eat. The Princeville Center is a small shopping mall next to where we were staying, and I stumbled upon this tiny hole in the wall there. As other travelers observed,... More

Good Mexican, but this place is always slammed. Girl working counter is always busting, but 35 minutes for some carry out tacos is nuts. The tacos are good, a great variety of options including shrimp, fish, carnitas, al pastor etc. they even have a salsa bar to choose from. A little pricey...5 tacos, rice& beans, and chips...$38

If you are on the North side of the island, don;t miss breakfast at Frederico's. It's fast and budget friendyl, not to mention very tasty. Huevos Rancheros were a highlight. Portions are huge so consider sharing!

Eating here is kind of like eating in an outdoor food court, so it doesn't have much in the way of atmosphere, but the food is perfectly fine and the service is very friendly. Servings are very generous.

Federico's was a little late opening for breakfast but we all recieved our breakfast in time for our tee time near Kapaa. Huervous rancheros was OK for food court food, breakfast queso with ham & cheese was yummy. Beware, there is no coffee served here, so send others in your party in line next door for java.

Being a Mexican-food lover, I'm kind of picky about my Mexican food. It lacked taste for me. The staff were friendly, the service is fine. Don't expect it to be great and it will taste just fine.
