“Tasty lard and salt”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Yes the food here tastes good but I suspect it's because how heavy they are on the lard and salt. I ate here once and the food was tasty but I suspect my burrito plate exceeded 1500 calories. I know mexican isn't health food but I've been places that can enhance flavor with fresh ingredients and seasonings and don't need to overdo it on fat and salt like these guys do.

“Great decor, good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

The food was good but in relation to "California Mexican food" it is OK/good but not great. I was sad that they didn't have ceviche. The food was a bit pricey but it was pretty consistent with local food prices. It is slightly less expensive than other Mexican food in the area and I will say it is probably the better of the choices for Mexican food in the Kailua area.

“Great Mexican Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

A very nice Mexican restaurant. Clean facility with okay decor. The chips and salsa were above average. Service was excellent. The appetizer and main dishes were hot, well prepared, and delicious. This was our second visit and was just as good as our first.

“Nice Mexican eats!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

My grandson and I met up with friends for a nice time. The staff is very friendly. They kept the chips and salsa filled. The food is superior for being in the middle of the Pacific! Nice choices. They have shrimp enchiladas that one person had and ate the entire meal! Parking is challenging but there is a nice parking garage to the back. The cost of 5 was about $20 a person with soda drinks. Seems reasonable, especially in HI!
