Luquin's is the people's choice in Puna. Several (all?) of the half dozen or so restaurants in town are better. But for visitors and locals who want unpretentious comfort food, on a budget,this fits the bill. Two bars. A friendly crowd and pleasant vibe.

Great Mexican food and entertainment. It's located in downtown Pahoa I would recommend it though it could be a little cleaner.

We had to drive by this place three times before we figured out that you need to go up a side street to park in their lot. This town is really sketchy compared to many other places we visited in the island, people splayed out on the sidewalks, unkempt look to the storefronts. And this restaurant was dirty: marks on...

The food is really good - might not be the BEST Mexican food, but it is fresh and delicious and HOT (temperature) every time. The burgers are great, too! Anytime you order shrimp it is... More

The restaurant was very busy when we went it, and every time we went past. Found it a little strange as the food was pretty average. I am not an expert of Mexican food (I have managed to visit Mexico twice though), but am pretty sure I have had better. Service was decent though, and quick considering how many people... More
