Pahoa fire officials have declared Luquin's Mexican Restaurant to be a total loss, along with the historic Akebono Theater. Hopefully, they will rebuild the only Mexican food establishment in Puna.

We have lived in Pahoa for about a year, it's time I shared one of the places we frequent! Luquin's isn't a fancy place at all. Some might be tempted to call it a "dive." However, often the most ONO grinds are found at places...More
