We stopped off in Hawi on a leisurely Monday afternoon and found this place by accident. Wonderful tasty great value Mexican food. Freshly cooked by a friendly couple of ladies. Would thoroughly recommend it. Much better than some of the other places in the town.

We drove 30 miles fir Mexican food one night during our vacation in waikoloa area. Only to drive up and see a hole in the wall. It's a simple counter. One lady pretty much runs everything. But the food was sooooo good and worth drive.

Having moved to the island from southern Arizona, we are used to excellent Mexican food -- and this comes pretty close. We especially like the chile Colorado and the enchiladas. Not crazy about the chicken burrito: not much flavor and would not order that again....More

If you are looking for a good cheap bite, the definitely hit up Mi Ranchito. They have a large menu of authentic Mexican cuisine for very non-tourist prices. However, go alone or take out because there is very little seating.
