Pretty good food

Stopped here for lunch yesterday after beaching at Lanikai. Parking sucks. Service was not the friendliest. However, food was very good. We split an order of nachos with shredded beef and a side of refried beans. Both were very tasty! The complimentary chips (good and crispy) and salsa... read more

it's a stretch to call this a Mexican restaurant. Salsa is canned, not fresh, pretty tasteless entrees, with yucky rice. Their refried beans are ok.

Nice family style Mexican restaurant. Good food at decent prices (unlike some other Mexican places in town). Service is always good and friendly. Food always arrive hot and ready to eat.

Great little spot to have good authentic Mexican food, and amazing Margarita's. The service was great, and the food was served quickly. Nachos with cheese, salsa and guacamole was a yummy starter, but don't eat too much because the servings are large. Only drawback is that you have to park at the municipal parking lot on the next street over... More

My wife and daughter and I all had Taco Salads which were awesome. The staff were also awesome. They were always coming by to make sure we were satisfied. I even go a picture of our waitress with my daughter. Very friendly. I was wanting something other than Hawaiian food and fish. I was passing by Los Garcia's and we... More

Los Garcias use to be good...not anymore. The salsa tasted sour and like tomatoe sauce, chips were a bit stale. We should have left but we did not want to be rude to our server. Ordered the nachos and carnitas. Carnitas were very nice-nachos average with hardly any fixings on them. It is all about the condiments and the salsa... More

Chips were stale and salsa tasted like jarred marinara. There was a "fresh" salsa option on the menu for $5...ridiculous. And it was downhill from there!

Not the best on Oahu but will satisfy a craving. The chips seem to be store bought but the salsa is tasty and a little different. More like a thick tomato paste.....I liked it though. Everyone in my group had carnitas which was flavorful and not overly oily. I had the carnitas tacos and again the tortillas seemed to be... More
