Craving Mexican on the island? Cholo's does its best to satisfy. It is tasty, but mild across the board. Good Margarita, a bit weak...but I am from New Mexico where the salsa is hot and tequila flows strong. Still, we were in the mood for our fave cuisine, and it was pretty good. It is very popular, the place was packed whenever we drove by.

The food is average and fills you up but it pretty much stops there. The salsa is fresh and makes you think the rest of the meal will be great however the rest is disappointing. Matt our waiter was very good and attentive. There are plenty of sketch pictures and artifacts on the wall to keep you entertained and overlook the food.

We held our rehearsal dinner here for our small family wedding. I made arrangements online and was pleased when I finally arrived. It is a cute place. We chose to eat outside and that was great. The highly praised fish tacos were wonderful; of course, being from Texas, we added more salsa!! The drinks were good and the wait staff were excellent. Most people I talked to thought eating Mexican in Hawaii was strange...but it really added to our trip and I'm so glad we did. Also, Cholos allowed us to bring in our own cake; the groom's favorite Red Velvet from Ted's Bakery in Sunset Beach. Delicious!

Food, fun? Yes Mexican food can be very fun and celebratory and Cholos offers just thaqt. The food is good, not very spicy but very tasty. The fish tacos are excellent. The Margaritas are varied in fruit bases but properly tart. The atmosphere is fun also. The wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. Great fun for a couple that miss their Tex-Mex food living in Hawaii.

For Hawaii, the prices here are pretty reasonable and they have a nice selection of options. I had a great burrito, but with the rice and beans sides I couldn't finish it. Still, I would come back here and try something new.
