good burrito

Had burrito and hubby had tacos. Good flavor. Burrito was big but tacos were small. Not cheap. Seating is in courtyard shared by other eating establishments.

Service was horrible in general (staff was even yelling at each other at one point). They were out of tortillas, how do you run out of tortillas at a Mexican restaurant! Staff seemed confused. That said, food was basic and good tasting when we finally found food to order that they had.

When we first saw this place, we were dubious. The restaurant itself is simply a walk up counter with setting outside in a common area. Thankfully, we tried it. Absolutely delicious. We had both kinds of fish tacos (the grilled is my favorite) and later tried the chicken mango salad (delicious) and the taco salad(average). Great place to grab a... More

We ate twice at the Federico's Fresh Mex Cuisine. The food was good and the service was fast. To order you walk into a small store front then wait out side in the covered patio area where the one person cashier and server brings your food. There were two cooks who prepared the food. The kitchen small and didn't look... More

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.
