We stopped as a detour to avoid traffic and we're just looking for any place to have a drink. About this place and stopped and despite our reservations about the area and were very surprised at the service, drinks and food. Very friendly met lots of great people here. Worth a stop

Had an early dinner here. Cute place, full menu, happy hour specials. The margarita was good, there are several different options, we had the cadillac. The chimichanga was good, I've had them fried a bit more, large portion with guacamole and sour cream. No outside dining, full bar in the next room. Women's restroom was pretty neat with a trough...

While this is my first review of this restaurant, it is not my first visit. We have been here numerous times and each time was better than before...and before had been GREAT! The food is outstanding and the service is premier. While it is a small place, you can tell the locals hang out here because it is always packed.... More

Authentic mexican food and a great atmosphere. Terribly tight parking, but that seem's to be normal around Hawaii. The prices are a little expensive, but if you search the menu you can eat fairly reasonable. Free chips and salsa with your meal. The salsa is made there, and is a little spicy. The service has always been excellent and the... More

This place is tucked away so it's hard to miss. This restaurant was a surprise hit! The margaritas were amazing, especially the Li-Hing Mui! The portion size of the food could feed you for a few days! Authentic food for a great price. The best part of the evening was the live band. It could be a little loud for... More

The food was awesome! Service wasn't that great. Had to ask to get our drinks refilled and ask for to-go boxes and our check. The queso was super yummy! We arrived at the lunch rush-hour. Was very busy when we arrived. By the time we were finished there were only 2 other tables eating. And service was still sub-par. Decent... More

I went there 2 years ago and being a Hispanic this is very authentic Mexican food being in Hawaii. Service was great a lot to choose from, very good if you want to take a break from Hawaiian food.

If all you had was a Margarita and the complimentary corn chips and salsa you might think you're in for a delicious meal. Sadly you'd be disappointed. The portions are quite generous but the food is fairly bland and disappointing. Not the worst Mexican food I've ever had but definitely not great

Their food and drink are exceptional. So much so,it is difficult to get parking. They have the best salsa in town and they may make their own chips. I've seen big piles of them in the kitchen.
