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.

Who knew? We had a fabulous lunch at this place which was recommended by the guy who did the botanical garden tour. Wonderful carnitas.

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.

We wanted to have a light, inexpensive meal close to where we were staying and Frederico's in Princeville was recommended by some locals. It is a take out place, where there is shared patio dining. The food was very good. It was served on picnic plates with plastic utensils. No complaints, go for it!!!

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
