We have been coming to Kailua Kona for over 15 years and we always have to have our Mexican food each week--we are from Arizona so we know good Mexican food.
Several years ago we discovered El Maguey in a little strip mall in Kailua Kona--across the street from the Honda Dealership. Good, good food.
So, yesterday we decided to just take a drive up to Hawi and discovered Mi Ranchito--we were shocked to learn that it is owned by the same people--family members--who own El Maguey.
Have to tell you how fabulous the food at Mi Ranchito is--great salsa. I had the tamale and chili relleno and it was yummy, yummy.
Husband had two chicken enchiladas and they were gone in minutes.
Their beans and rice are really good.
Cash only--it's ok. And, the service was just excellent and friendly.
You won't be sorry at either restaurant. Too bad you can't get a margarita at either but El Maguey has beer and at Mi Ranchito, you can go around the corner to buy beer.
