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.

Not too many dining choices in Ko Olina and gave Just Tacos a try. Menu had an interesting write up on the owner and how Just Tacos came about in 2005. Seeing menudo on the menu, had to give it a try....on the island no less. It was okay. May not have been the favorite on the menu because the... More

The food is good, not outstanding but a good solid meal. We got our food to go which the restaurant was more than happy to do. The front host/hostess staff was super friendly and went out of their way to make sure we got everything that we wanted. Will eat here again when we return to Hawaii next year!

Just Tacos had a good menu and nice decor. It was reasonably priced for the area. I'm from California, so I'm used to really good Mexican food. This was not bad for Hawaii.

Good menu, great view of the sunset, mexican beer and a good bunch of waiters and waitresses equals a great time. The steak platter is very good but be prepaired for a hot spice!

Stopped in for quick bite and saw......hmmm happy hour. $5 margaritas and 25% off select appetizers. I ordered the chicken taquitos and although they came out hot they were flavorless no salt no seasoning at all. The frozen Don Julio margarita was watered down with tons of chunked ice and the chips and salsa brought out for the table were... More

My family and I went to Just Tacos for dinner, and everyone left satisfied. Only a 15 minute wait for 6 people. Our food was ready 10 minutes after we ordered it. A little bit pricy, but completely worth it.

While staying at Aulani for the weekend we decided to get dinner at a more reasonably priced restaurant so we crossed the street to visit Just Tacos. Well the food prices were really not all that bad considering the area, the quality was just average. Not a savory as Mexican should be. The drinks were waaaay too expensive. I ordered... More
