The good was nothing special but was cheap compaired to other food around that area. Didn't have any drinks as we were on our way to the airport to fly home. It is an easy stop and has a normal taco menu. Don't know if I will be back again.

We recently ate at this restaurant and the food was so bad I am writing my first trip advisor review. We ordered 4 separate dishes and each one was mediocre at best. Even my wife's blended margarita was horrible. There is a big write up about how the owner opened the concept while in university, and while a great story... More

Seriously don't know what we were thinking going to a Mexican restaurant in Hawaii. It was fine. No one got sick. The service was good and it was a good place to sit while we waited for our hotel to be ready. Very clean. Pretty expensive for the quality. Not rushing back.

We loved the food so much we came back the very next night. All 9 in our party, including some rather fussy little ones, enjoyed our dinner so much the first night we made plans immediately to return the very next night. Great, friendly, helpful service also. Highly recommend.

Across the street from the Aulani, this spot falls a little short. It was just another Mexican restaurant serving the same thing as every other Mexican restaurant. They were very busy and did not seem ready or capable of handling the crowd. The wait staff seemed overwhelmed and stressed, which did not make for an enjoyable diner experience.

We came to check this friendly looking restaurant and enjoyed it a lot ! Walking distance from Disney's Aulani and JW Marriot. Menu is good and the portions are huge. Moderately priced and great service made it an enjoyable night. The green pork tacos (more like a huge Mexican plate meal) was delicious and the fajitas were very good. The... More

Best thing is it is within walking distance to the JW Marriott. The food was good, drinks were good. It was our final night in Oahu. We ate outside so that was nice. We like to eat outside in Hawaii as much as we can.

We took a chance and went to Just Tacos while in Ko Olina. It is a very short walk from our hotel and we wanted to get away from the high prices at the resort. So . . . we returns to a shopping area to find a couple of restaurants. Mexican sounded good but we are from Phoenix, so... More

It always amazes me when a mexican place has no food for vegetarians. The beans, etc all meat laden. I actually eat fish but was with vegetarians. The ambiance was just OK, service ok and food was average. Another odd item, there were not many tacos on this menu and mostly other items.
