“Good healthy food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

A small, hole-in-the-wall restaurant with reasonable prices for Kauai. The ahi tostada was wonderful. Be aware that the fish is nearly raw, so if you want it cooked more, you will have to ask for that.

“Excellent Mexican Food and a Great Value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This restaurant is a must visit if you are staying at any of the resorts nearby. It is easy to miss as it is located in a strip mall and is somewhat small but you won't be disappointed by the food. Happy Hour is from 3 pm - 5 pm and I believe it was $4.00 margharitas which were very tasty with the salt rim and all. The food was amazing both in taste and size. All three of us had different meals and we each could not finish and had to bring it back to the resort for the next day.

Highly recommended!

“so good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Great find! Simple, basic restaurant with top notch food and great service! The guys working there a friendly, fun and know their food! This could be just any old Mexican food restaurant but it is not! Unique twist - Ahi Tuna Tostado for example - and really, really good! My determining factor is always "would I go back?". And this was a resounding YES. Enjoy!

“Great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Go on a Monday...it is $3 Margaritas!!
The beef (short ribs) is tender and shredded. It taste good on anything. The green salsa and red are excellent! (I was surprise being from the LA area). Big Portions so you might want to split if you dont have a microwave in your hotel room.
