Great Margaritas!!!

We came here after a surfing lesson. My husband and daughters surfed. I watched and filmed so after 2 hours, I was dying for a cold margarita. We just wanted a quick stop and this place worked. My husband and I got house margaritas, on the rocks and we all shared nachos and a chicken... read more

We were able to be seated indoors after a brief wait. Food choices are varied and food tastes much better than I remember from a previous visit. The margaritas are fantastic. Wait staff are very friendly, efficient. Half of our party arrived after our orders were taken, yet it was no problem for our server. We had a nice late... More

We stopped in here on a Thursday night ad was pleasantly surprised. I had a Ahi Taco Salad that was done to perfection, I asked for the Ahi to just be lightly seared and that is what they did. The steak burrito special was ful of nice beef. The shrimp quesadilla was also delicious.

As Southern Californians, we love our Mexican food and were pleased with the atmosphere, service, margarita selection and food at Cholos. The pace is relaxed and it's a great place to take kids. There is a nice gelato store next door for dessert.

During our week in the Haleiwa area, we had a chance to try a few restaurants, including Cholos. The appeal of this location is the outdoor seating that faces a quiet courtyard-like parking area. It was a nice way to relax while enjoying the outdoors and we were able to find a larger table for our group of 5 adults.... More

Great little spot in a shopping center in Haleiwa on the North Shore. Frozen margaritas were great. Chips and salsa were awesome. Shared an appetizer nacho sampler, huge portion, the meat seasoning was just ok, kinda bland, but overall it was good.

This place was recommended to me for a good place to hang and get some drinks. They service was great, the food even better but the drinks were perfection. (*Side note, They had numerous pieces of artwork on the walls to sell, but we could never find anyone who could talk about price with us. Weird)

Good margaritas and food as well as atmosphere. Service was great, good to go after a day at the beach. I had the taco salad which was pretty filling.
