We had dinner hear, yes, it was a busy night, however, it was around an hour and 15 minutes to get a plate of enchiladas and a taco salad. The salad was soupy, the "shredded beef" was nearly all fat globs. The waitress was great,...More

We have lived in Pahoa for about a year, it's time I shared one of the places we frequent! Luquin's isn't a fancy place at all. Some might be tempted to call it a "dive." However, often the most ONO grinds are found at places...More

Building is run down and needs to be updated but food is good. Hard to find Mexican food worth eating in Hawaii. Give it a try.

Stopped in Pahoa for a quick lunch after doing the Scenic drive on Hwy 137. We chose Luquin's as it was very busy, so always a good sign. As it was our 1st trip to the area, it seemed a little rustic, but this was...More

Luquin's is such a fab local spot! We go there for Pau Hana without fail every Friday, along with a bunch of the usual suspects. Food is authentic Mex, atmosphere is pure Pahoa, Margarita's are sublime. For a real taste of Pahoa, don't miss Luquin's

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...More
