OK! We had heard that their Mexican food was good. Nope. It was not good at all. They do have a happy hour. Ate the shredded beef quesadilla, chili fries, and a chimichanga. Starting with chips and salsa--chips were bordering on stale; the Pico de gallo was watery. The chili fries was barely OK. The Chimichanga was awful, not crispy... More

The food I got (flautas) were very good. Drinks are EXTREMELY expensive here. Its a very small place so probably a wait, especially for a large party. We were actually ask to move tables so they could use our four top (there were two of us) for a larger party. (it was seat yourself). Short on staff so it took... More

We've had the burritos, crab and shrimp enchiladas, flautas. They were pretty good. Their salsa doesn't seem freshly made, little salty and tomatoes look like it could be from a can. Chips are nice and fresh, sadly they don't give any with take out, only with dining in. The rice is good but I don't care for their refried beans,... More

We've been patrons of this restaurant for a few years and the quality and service has been going downhill. we go because it is on our way home from work. The food is just OK. Nothing to write home about. But the service has sunk to a new low. The servers make you feel like you are in a mess... More

This is a great place to have a good lunch for under $10. I had the chimichanga lunch special in the restaurant. It felt like I was in a typical Mexican family restaurant just North of the border in Southern California.

It's hard to find good mexican food here in Hawaii. This restaurant was recommended to us and it was pretty good. Coming from California it is hard to find decent mexican food. It was a little pricey but then what isnt here on Oahu. If I didnt feel like cooking it myself I would go back.

We're not really known for having lots of Mexican restaurants in Honolulu but this one is a gem. Located in Market City Shopping Plaza at the corner of Kapiolani and Harding Ave near the Market City Foodland Grocery Store. It is run by an El Salvadoran family and has very good food and cute decor. I must advise that the... More

I'm not a fan of Mexican food like my wife but I'll say that Toritos in Market City is one of the best Mexican food restaurants I've eaten at in Honolulu. Their service is very fast and the guys working are fun and competent. I tried their "Crazy Burrito" based on the recommendation of one of the servers and it... More

Disappointing experience. I am trying to check out all local Mexican restaurants and this one was not far from where I was shopping today. I went there around 1 PM (on Sunday) and the place was rather empty – 2 people at the bar and few people at 3 dining tables. I looked at the menu and was surprised at... More

I have only eaten at their McCully location (there is another one in Market City), and the service and food is FANTASTIC. The prices are very reasonable and they have the best Risotto in the Island!!! Also,I have had the same server each time and he is very attentive. When my family and friends want to eat Italian, we always... More
