Pretty good Mexican in Hawaii

The portions were large and tasty. Margaritas were above average. Our waiter was tremendous, but the hostesses were not! Outdoor seating is better than the loud, crowded inside. Would go again, but only if other better choices weren't available.

This place has so much potential it's a wonder that the dishes come out uninspired. The family is from Mexico and very nice people, I'm not sure where the disconnect is. I've tried it several times as I keep thinking maybe it's me but I don't think so. Go enjoy the huge assortment of Tequila and then travel forward from... More

We had lunch here one day, one adult and two kids. The kids nachos and tacos were great. I had a chicken burrito and it hit the spot. The service was great, a little laid back but very appropriate in Hawaii. The hostess was very nice and the waiter was great. Definitely recommend if staying at the Aulani resort, quick... More

Nachos were great, kids meals were good, fish and shrimp tacos were just ok...fajitas were tasty, but skimpy on meat... Drinks were good, service a little slow, but in a resort area, I guess you get what you pay for!

Great Mexican food in a strip mall across the street from Ko Olina resorts. Delicious food and great service. Only complaint was that our appetizer nachos arrived the same time as our entrees.

Chips and Guac/Salsa were very good. Fajitas were okay, very big portions. One order can feed 2, maybe 3 - don't order fajitas for each person, unless you're a big eater. A nice short walk from Aulani.

Service was super slow. We ordered bloody Marie's which were super watered down and had little to no flavor or garnishes. For $10.00 I was disappointed. Food was excellent

Decent place to grab lunch or dinner. Service was good. Selection was decent. Small inside and gets crowded at dinner time.

Really wasn't expecting much, but exceeded my expectations. Waiter was attentive, the food was excellent. We got hot nachos with meal and lots of menu options. I went for the taco salad. Hit the spot. Save room for desert their fried Apple pie and fried ice cream are worth the calories.

We ate here, and enjoy drinks. Had taco salad kinds small, but the free chips & salsa fill you up anyways.
