We dined nearly every night (walking from the Marriott Ko Olina), or grabbed a quick drink at Just Tacos. Their staff was kind and attentive, the salsa amazing! If you like hot salsa, be sure to ask! It had a hot and smoky flavor, and we could not stop eating!

I've eaten at Just Tacos many times over the years and never had a bad meal. The food is decent with few surprises. The margarita's are made with any of 200 or so tequila's in any way you like. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Atmosphere is fun and inviting.

That said, my latest trip out was only average. My family ate with some friends at a table for 8 with dinner reservations. We were seated promptly and attended to initially but as the night went on, the service dwindled and made me wonder if they wanted to sell us drinks. Food came out slowly but when it did it was hot and no complaints on taste. They were accommodating to our 3 young boys including tolerating their late-night antics in and out of the seat.

There aren't many dining options in Ko'Olina outside of the hotels. For a long while, Just Tacos was the only option. It's still popular so arrive early to avoid a wait. Inside dining can be loud and boisterous, outside more relaxing. I've never had a problem with flies as one recent reviewer wrote. With regards to cost, I'd say it's a good food-for-dollar value in a resort environment. Hawaii dining anywhere is expensive so there are few deals anywhere.

Note that parking has gotten very limited with the opening of a neighboring restaurant and shows no signs of improving. Free valet is currently offered which I recommend to avoid frustration, walk, or take one of the hotel shuttles to the JW and walk over.

Just Tacos is a great addition to Ko Olina since the last time we were there. After a while, it nice to be able to eat a more "normal" meal. Twice, we ordered take-out, I'd go pick it up and bring it back to the room. The portions were more than adequate, you can easily make two meals from one serving, we did.

They have a great tequila bar, very limited on other liquors. Food quality was very poor and service was extremely slow. Seemed understaffed.

The food was pretty good. We had a fun server but he was very busy with tables inside and out. All in all, we would eat there again. The best place there was an ABC store across the street. We had the best hamburgers at their little deli inside the store. Better than Roys!
