We stopped in to get some food to go. We were very happy with our meal very large portions and very good. The employees were very friendly also.

The food might have been warmer temperature wise, but was very tasty and a generous portion. Nice friendly staff, very reasonable pricing, plastic knives and forks a minor nit.Will definitely be back.

Food was great but there are a few bummers. Chips and salsa will cost you, should be free just like every other Mexican restaurant on the planet. Hidden 10% gratuity if you have a party of 5 or more! What possible reason could that be for when you have to order at the counter!

All of the food is good but for me the signature is the Barbeque chicken salad in a deep fried tortilla shell. Eat the salad and then eat the shell. So good!!1 Nothing fancy about the place and the owner is not always the most cheerful guy. In fact, he wouldn't allow us to make room for six to sit... More

The food was fresh and fast! The queso dip, chips and salsa were tasty. For dinner we had the steak tacos and steak fajitas. Both were large portions and delicious. Our only issue was the restaurant only has 1 high chair and it was being used by another family so we had to hold our 8 month old, but it... More

Yummy and filling Mexican food available in a casual, unpretentious setting. The BBQ chicken salad is tasty and huge, my daughter felt the same way about her fish salad. The pollo asada and carnitas tacos were hits with my other kids. Good selection of cold beers and Mexican sodas. $4.50-$10.50. Fills up quick but to-go is an option!

I love the choices , but my favorite is the pork burrito. It tastes like kalua pig, a Hawaiian dish, and it's so huge, i save half for dinner.

This place is under new ownership. That's good, they are actually friendlier than the last owner anyway. The recipes and the cooking staff are the same. Instead of "Jimmy's famous margaritas" they were "Maggie's famous margaritas" Still the same good recipe. This is usually one of our first stops on the island and will be in the coming years as...
