We stopped at Federico's, which is next door to Lei Bakery and Coffee Shop in Princeville Town Center, because the Lei's Bakery was baked out....no food....one scone and great coffee. Federico's food was delicious and the six of us had a variety of different entrees that were among the best Mexican food we've ever had. ( Coming from California that's... More

We ordered a taco salad and a wrap along with chips n cheese. Took about 35 minutes after placing out order to be served. Several folks who ordered after us were served first. With my taco salad, it said grilled chicken. What I got was grilled chicken slices that had been dipped in a fryer to warm up. Had a... More

This is just tiny take out restaurant with tables outside. The food was just average. I asked a couple of questions and they said yes and the answer was really no or not really. So I think a good place for a quick lunch. I had the special and it was fine. Appeared to be home made except for tortillas.... More

Portions are very large. Kids loved it and I loved it too. I recommend paying the upgrade and getting the green sauce. VERY YUMMY.

Standard "americanized" Mexican food that is tasty and reasonably priced. It's basically take out but there is a food court of sorts where you can sit and eat.

After a long day at Waimea Canyon, Federico's hit the spot for a delicious, quick dinner. You can order take out or eat in the covered eating area outside. We ordered a combo plate which included beans and rice. We had the chipotle and Rosarita fish tacos and shrimp tacos. All were delicious!!! Each taco comes with two tortillas, your... More

After a LONG day on the island we were hungry but didn't want the pressure (or expense) of a real restaurant. The concierge took this into account & suggested this place. It's located in a small (market) shopping center food court. Hearing this made my wife cringe but when we were told that this was the BEST Mexican food on... More

The breakfast here is a good value for the price. The Mexican style menu has good choices and the food taste great. A breakfast for two is about $15 which is a good price for Hawaii food prices. We found this place latter in the week because they are not open on the weekend. So plan accordingly.

We decided to get the tacos a la carte. The wife had the chicken taco on a flour tortilla and I went with a carnitas and a carne asada taco. We decided against the rice and beans as we were heading to a luau later in the evening. I was glad that I had me cell phone along. The tacos... More
