According to the receipt, the cashier's name is Maria. We asked for her name, but she wouldn't give it to us. She was extremely rude during our order, but we still tipped over 17%. When she brought the food out to us, she carelessly dropped it on our table. When we noticed it didn't come with the fresh fruit and... More

Counter service operation within a food court. Order took a long time. Service person was grumpy so I was turned off right away. Based on the ratings, I was expecting more. Fish tacos were average considering the access to fish in Hawaii.

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.
