I visited twice while staying in the princeville area. Entrees around $10. Generous portions and good flavor. I recommend the beef tostada's, chicken and carne asada tacos and the giacamole. Near woodland and Piazzo pizzeria. Seating g in a shared courtyard with open seating.

I agree with the other post that this is just a casual place. Also you are on the other side of the island. I would try locations as far as Lihue from your location.
