Food was affordable and came fast. Had my first steak wet burrito which didn't fail to impress. You also get a free basket of chips and plenty of salsas to choose from.

From Mexico to Hilo, street tacos are legit. Too loud, which is pretty authentic too. Great Al pastor and carnitas.

This is a great place to go. The locals are very nice, relaxed feeling. Busy with great food, good prices and large portions. Would return.

Stopped here for dinner w/ friends one night last week while on the way back to Kona from Volcanoes National Park. Food was delicious, portions are generous, and service was friendly and fast. Lucy's mom was super nice, too. :-) Just a great, low-key place.

Good food but nothing fancy. Prices are fair. You have to bus your own tables and get your own drinks and chips and salsa. That's ok but might tougher with young children or if you're elderly and no one will help. It was a good...More

3 generations were happy with their food choices. Burritos, tacos, rice and beans, nachos and prawns. My favorite was the blended coconut marguerite. Well worth a visit even though the music is a little loud.
