Found this joint on a whim, menu was expansive and cheap. Service quick and easy. Downsides were out of rice and the chips weren't the freshest. I had the vegetarian bowl and it was delicious, made Chipotle taste like McDonalds. My friend had chicken tacos...More

Found this place in a strip mall just off the main drag. Huge Burritos and tasty tacos. Very good price point for the portions. Went back several times and would go again. Good value play for Kona.

We live in Kona and eat here very often. Shrimp burrito is my fave. My wife loves the carne asada. Clean, friendly and happy environment. Food is made quick. Very tasty. Nachos are huge. Try them. You won't regret it.
