Be prepared - its in a food court. But the food is delicious and fresh, people are nice. And they have lots of vegetarian options..

Great food.. the buritto portions are huge - ingredients are fresh and the price is right! The lady at the front serving the food was a bit overwhelmed but she did a good job at deflecting all the people coming through

We had good Mex food here. It's simple and on paper plates, but filling and tasty. FYI: The food choices are more limited on the North side, so you also have to appreciate what you have. Staff lacking personality and the outdoor patio could be tidier. Good lunch choice before grocery shopping! :)

We eat here frequently. It's take-out, but there are tables available in the covered courtyard. Food is excellent. I especially like the tacos al pastor. Service is friendly, and the prices are very good for the area.

We ordered chips with guac and were shocked at how large the portion was for only $5, it was really good too! I got the steak tacos and my husband got an enchilada both had great flavor. There was an acoustical gituar guy playing there that night in the courtyard which made eating outside nice. Would recommend this little hole... More

We went for dinner with the kids. It was really good. The only flaw was they were short staffed and had a line. Be prepared for good portions and go early or prepare to wait in line.

Located in the Princeville Shopping Center behind the hardware store. Right next to Lei Pettite Bakery and the Lotus Garden. Also in the same area is the Tiki Iniki. The prices are reasonable, the service a little slow, but the taste was very good. The freshness was evident and the portion was enough to fill you up.

Pretty good Mexican food in the Princeville Center. Grab your drinks ahead of time at the Foodland Market. More variety and a bit cheaper. Some nights the center has live music. But always a good place to relax and people watch. Leave room for Lappert's Ice Cream just around the corner.
