This place is very good. Fresh food. We ate there twice on this trip and we had very good food both times. We are from TEXAS and we know Mexican, well Tex-Mex, and this place hits the spot. The only complaint is they are so busy it takes awhile to get your food. This is not a sit down place... More

I live here part time. I Go to,Federico's quite often, not best Mexican but it's consistently good and hits the spot when your craving Mexican food. The carne asada burrito and chicken taquitos are very good. They usually have a fresh agua fresca of the day.....if your debating between Federico's and Chinese/Thai next door, go here, the other place is... More

Small store, order and they'll bring the food out to your table outside. Excellent Mexican cuisine and a great avocado salad. Very reasonably priced and good service.

They stay busy and the cashier seems comfortable knowing that and acts accordnigly. Being friendly wouldn't hurt..she should try it some time. Food was out fairly quickly. It was okay, nothing special, but I wasn't expecting great mexican food in the middle of the Pacific. It served its purpose of a quick bite between meals. If that's what you're looking... More

Enjoyed the food. My carnitas burrito was delicious. Good value for Kauai. The salsa was tasty, but the "hot" was not all that spicy. The seating is somewhat limited. We were there a little on the late side, so did not have a problem. There are a lot of birds (sparrows, chickens, etc.) that are a bit of a nuisance.... More

Staff was friendly, food came out fast, food court dining. We had the enchilada wrap, steak and Carne asada burrito, both very tasty and large portions. Great for a quick meal.

Enjoyed it very much. However, I suggest you get it to go. It is a tiny place and you sit outside in a shared area where the birds are abundant and so is their poop. They definitely don't clean the tables or chair since it is a shared area by three tiny food establishments

Stopped here while touring the north and east side of Kauai. Big disclaimer - we are from Texas so Mexican food is something we are a bit selective about. My wife had a chicken burrito and I had the fish tacos. Both were good although my tacos were probably a bit better. The burrito was large but lacked any significant... More

Super delicious breakfast! Omelets and other items, and the open air eating is nice. Very friendly staff!

The burritos are huge and delicious. This is a food court, so there is no ambience, but the meal was very good and not too expensive.
