Our favorite stop for tacos in Hilo. Food is great at a reusable price you can't go wrong. And they have parking!

Lucys was recommended by almost every local I spoke to when asking where the great food in Hilo is. We were not disappointed. Lucys has the best mexican food I've ever eaten. Service was fast and food was delicious ! Visiting Hilo? This is a MUST!!!!

Food was fantastic, lots of choices. Especially loved the corn on the cob-I know that doesn't sound Mex but trust me you'll be blown away!

While in Hilo we had dinner from here twice, once eat in and the other to go. Service was really good, the food was filling and more than enough. It seemed more of a local place and it was a little confusing when we first went there but Lucy was helpful and patient to tell us how it worked. Lots... More

Lucy's definitely has its own style. The music is thumping, the bar area is hoppin, and everyone is relaxed and having a good time. They have a variety of tacos, plates, enchiladas, salads, fajitas, nachos, basically everything Mexican. The chorizo is delicious, I loved the salsa bar on the side, the horchata was sweet and creamy. You even get fresh,... More

They have tofu! They have vegetarian beans! Sometimes that's all we can hope for and Lucy's had a funky little style to go with it. Was it the best Mexican food I've ever had? Not really, but it was pretty good and quite filling. My biggest complaint was the cheese was kinda greasy once melted. Complimentary chips and salsa with... More

We ordered the enchiladas, the Lucy's Burrito, and the nachos. Portions are huge! We could have shared one entree between the two of us. Horchata wasn't so fret but the Agua Fresca was pretty tasty.
