“A great find in Hilo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

I happened upon Lucy's after reading a review in the UHHilo magazine and was definitely not disappointed. Excellent food and service. Great for takeout. Lucy's is not only the freshest but the most delicious Mexican food ever. The portions are huge and the staff is always smiling!

“Great Food and relaxed atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I love going to Lucy's Taqueria.

Ordering the food is a little different. You order the food and drink and pick a small pinjada and chose your table. The food will be served to you when your order is ready.

Food is super fresh and it tastes great and is cooked in an open kitchen, you can even watch them. Nice is also just to have a little bite to eat when you are at their bar, having some beer from the tap.

Wonderful place, that i like to go back to every now and then

“Best food ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I was in Hilo for a day to visit and ended up here before the flight back to Oahu. I came at the recommendation of trip advisor and I was not disappointed. The food was fresh, tasty, and the portions were huge! I've never had a burrito as large as the one I got here. I only wish there was a place as good as Lucy's in my hometown! Prices are extremely reasonable and almost downright cheap for the amount of food you get. Great place to stop for a meal before a flight as the airport is nearby!

“Best Mexican on the Island bar none.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Ended up staying on the big island for seven weeks. This became a once a week place to go. Ok maybe twice... Cafeteria style ordering though. You order at the counter they bring it to your table and they ask you to bus your own table but well worth it for the food. They have several different salsa sauces. They have a house sauce that is served warmed up mmmmm good. Try them all you won't be disappointed. Very family-friendly. Seem to me many many regular customers which I like to see. Extensive menu. If you want sit-down service all you have to do is sit in the front bar section and you'll get served. They have lots of different kinds of tequila on the wall for you to try. A definite must place to eat in Hilo. Oh yeah and great prices.

Do yourself a favor and come here and get some chips/salsa, a horchata and a chicken torta(sandwich).
You will not be disappointed!
