Very decent Mexican food and/hamburgers. Good value for the money, good service. A nice place to go in a remote part of Hawaii

Family friendly, yummy margaritas and delicious food. Laid-back atmosphere, if you didn't know you were in Hawaii, Pahoa and Luquin's feels like the Old West. A trip to the Hilo region is not complete without a stop in Pahoa and a meal at Luquins.

Good food. We tried almost all items you would normally order at a Mexican food restaurant.

Chicken enchiladas, fish tacos, shrimp tacos, chicken tacos, nachos, rice and beans.

Passion fruit margaritas are wonderful but $32 per pitcher.

Order took a long time to get out, but they were busy.

Luquins has been operating in Pahoa for many years and is more like the town square. It's the largest restaurant in town and you're likely to see or meet many locals. Family friendly and reasonably priced.

The chips and salsa you get before your meal are really tasty and you can have more for $2. Food portions are average to large, so I never leave hungry

For breakfast I like the Moco Loco. About 1000 calories of rice topped with an egg, beef patty and slathered in gravy and mushroom. Sounds gross, tastes great and definitely fills you up.

Coffee is always on and the service is ok, the wait staff are efficient but no time to be particularly friendly because they're usually very busy.

Everything I've tried here so far has been great. And you MUST have a liliquoi marguerita (or a pitcher of them!) while you're there.
