We had dinner here a few nights ago. Typical American-style Mexican food. For fellow Aussies, it's not like home. It super juicy/runny and heaps of cheese!! Tasty all the same. I had the Big Mama, similar to a pizza but made from tortilla & cover in pulled chicken meat & salsa. The margarita menu... read more

This restaurant has a full menu of Mexican cuisine. It is also a hot spot for the night crowd. Our hotel room was nearby and we could hear the goings on there. We enjoy the nachos which is a meal for us. They offer burritos, and other dishes as well. The service is fast and the meal arrives quickly. Enjoyed... More

My husband and I just had dinner at this restaurant, and are not fussy. We have never written a review, but we will now. The food in this restaurant for the cost was really sad. My Caesar salad was like a small dinner salad and my husbands chilli rehanios was tasteless. When we spoke to the manager he said this... More

Where does one start. 1. Requested seat in outside dining area. Denied 2. Ordered Meal which arrived in 30 seconds. Owner must have ESP. 3. Ordered Beer. Flat as a pancake. 4. Gratuity included in bill before tip added.

This was by far the most disappointing and bland Mexican food I have ever eaten. This was by far the biggest waste of money of our whole trip. Do yourself a favour and give this place a big La Missarcha!

Typical mexican restaurant great service typical food kind of pricey (but hey, you're in Hawaii). If you want chicken Mole, or a delicious burrito with some chips and salsa and a margarita, go here. You'll have your cravings met.

We ate here Sun 22nd March 2015, food was just average and drinks not cheap. Gratuity included in the bill is bloody rude, and then ask for more with suggested amounts. There were 4 of us dining. Eat there if you must.
