“The best vegetarian, Mexican food ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We went to Lucy's for dinner on our way back from the Hawaii Volcano Park on the Big Island. This restaurant has the best salsa that I have had so far. Awesome vegetarian varieties to choose from (which is usually rare for us vegetarians)! Awesome potato burritoes. Never had those before.
A fun, lively, local hang out.

Highly recommend it.

“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

This place is busy (for Hilo) and loud (for Hilo) but the food is great and very well priced. The owner is a sweetheart! I dont like that you have to clean your own table without a tray. Bathrooms clean, but tables are often not wiped down. Nice area for kids to play while parents dine.

“Delicious, Friendly Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We stopped in Hilo after touring Volcano National Park and were famished. Lucy's hit the spot. It is right next to Subway. Seemed like a favorite for the locals and college students. Great variety on the menu from simple tacos for the kids to huge burritos for the adults. Enjoyed trying the three different salsas on the salsa bar. Food was tasty and staff was very friendly. Would definitely recommend.

“You will be happy you went!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

Delicious food and lots of it for a fair price. The service was prompt and pleasant and everyone was egar to assist. Try their homemade hibiscus drink, it's unforgettable just like their huge burritos! We will be making the 2 hour drive to Hilo just to have lunch their again!
