Reviewed March 13, 2013

We ate here on way to north shore. Was a good place to eat. Food was good and authentic. I thought was reasonably priced. It was pretty crowded so people flocked to it. Always a good sign.

“Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Being a Mexican Food snob from Southern California I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. I usually don't eat Mexican food in Hawaii but we went to Cholo's for a Margarita(which was excellent). We just ordered a carne asada quesadilla but the waiter misunderstood me and brought a carne asada plate. His screw up became our pleasant surprise, It was the best carne I have had in a restaurant in a very long time. We broke our own rule and actually went back a second time.

“Good margaritas and that is about it ...”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

The drinks are outstanding, the food is average. Maybe my standards are too high but something was off. The meet was overcooked, the rice was dry, the service was average, but the drinks were really yummy. Did I already mention that?! Go for anything that has tequila in it and not for the food. The drinks are worth the trip.... Yes we had several!!

“High price/quality ratio !”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

One who like mexican food would find himself amazed with 'real' spices and hot sauces, no fraud like in Europe' similar joints. Taste of food is excellent and prices are like you could yell: drinks for the whole house ! Real McCoy for a roadside cantina....

“Best Mexican Food on the North Shore!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

We stopped here immediately upon arriving in town due to the reviews we had seen. We were not disappointed. Be sure to try the daily specials. I had a seafood enchilada that was one of the best things I had ever eaten. Good, spicy salsa and a full bar made this an excellent experience. We came back the next day too! Nachos had a few too many beans, but otherwise very good. Service was friendly and efficient and the decor was very nice. Can be a bit crowded at times, but usually not a long wait. Located off the highway in a small shopping center but is worth the search.
