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.

I'm not an expert on Mexican food, but I totally enjoyed my outing to Mexico Restaurant. The service was good, and the portions were huge! The food was good, and the atmosphere is so great. I love how they decorated the place. I would definitely recommend this place!

Considering what the area looks like, We were pleasantly surprised of the flavor. it's our first 30 minutes on the ground in Honolulu… We were hungry and the number one spot on Trippet visor was across the street. It is a Hawaiian restaurant, with about a 25 minute wait. We were way way too hungry to wait. And we all... More

Stopped in for a quick meal early in the day. Place was empty. Staff was great! Gabriel was attentive and quick with the water refills. Chips were okay, salsa was too much like tomato soup for my liking. My fajita burrito was very good. Rice and beans were excellent. Atmosphere was typical Mexican restaurant and very nice and clean. It... More

Great Mexican food is hard to find in Honolulu. This family owned restaurant provides good food. I prefer Tex Mex over CA or NM styles. The menu is diverse. But, it does not offer fajita type meats for nachos, quesadillas, etc. I have not tried the lobster or crab enchiladas because the meat is previously frozen. There are lots of... More
