Great Chille Relleno and enchiladas! A bit out of the way but the most authentic food you will find on Oahu. I eat here once a week. BTW try Helena's across the street for great Hawaiian food.

Salad made with iceberg lettuce and chicken in tasteless chunks not freshly shredded. Have been going there for 5 years and watched food quality go down and prices soar! Sorry to see this happen as Honolulu has so few choices for Mexican Resturants

have had the opportuity to eat here on several occasions and find the value and quality to be consistently favorable
the one down side might be the noise level esp on evenings when they have live music
but it is not that big of a problem in my view
food is fresh service is friendly and speedy
oh and servings are pentiful many times i end up having enough fpr lucn the next day
try the two choice combo
and the lemonade is ono (delicious)

This is one of the first places our family tried when we moved here and it was well worth it! The food is tasty, with large portions and a great selection; staff is friendly and the location is off the tourist path. There is a kids menu and sometimes there is a wait because it is sooo good!

I've eaten there only 1 time so to be fair I can neither rave nor bad mouth this restaurant. I went there with my daughter & her husband Sept 20, 2013 & I had a good meal. It was a Taco/Tortilla combo for $14.50. I was hoping it wasn't too spicy & it wasn't. It came with a generous helping of fried rice & refried beans. All good. My son-in-law had a huge chicken Taco salad that he loved & my daughter had some kind of Mexican soup that turned out to be better than she expected. The service was fine & the small dining area was tastefully decorated, as you might expect, like a restaurant in Mexico City--not bad.
