“Tex-Mex in beautiful Princeville, Kauai”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

This place is very good. Fresh food. We ate there twice on this trip and we had very good food both times. We are from TEXAS and we know Mexican, well Tex-Mex, and this place hits the spot. The only complaint is they are so busy it takes awhile to get your food. This is not a sit down place to eat....you order your food, they cook it fresh and then you get it and find a place to sit in the courtyard. We were lucky to have live music one night, the local husband and wife, "Soulgood." They were phenomenal ! Loved them and their music -- bought their CD. Please look for them when in Kauai and go and listen to them....buy their music. They made our good food even better. Also, eat at Federico's.....you won't regret it !

“Good and hits the spot”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

I live here part time. I Go to,Federico's quite often, not best Mexican but it's consistently good and hits the spot when your craving Mexican food. The carne asada burrito and chicken taquitos are very good. They usually have a fresh agua fresca of the day.....if your debating between Federico's and Chinese/Thai next door, go here, the other place is very mediocre.

“Economical but delicious lunch in Princeville”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Small store, order and they'll bring the food out to your table outside. Excellent Mexican cuisine and a great avocado salad.
Very reasonably priced and good service.

“Okay food, service without a smile”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

They stay busy and the cashier seems comfortable knowing that and acts accordnigly. Being friendly wouldn't hurt..she should try it some time.

Food was out fairly quickly. It was okay, nothing special, but I wasn't expecting great mexican food in the middle of the Pacific. It served its purpose of a quick bite between meals. If that's what you're looking for, it's a great option. If you're wanting something more, move on.

“Good food, good price”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Enjoyed the food. My carnitas burrito was delicious. Good value for Kauai. The salsa was tasty, but the "hot" was not all that spicy. The seating is somewhat limited. We were there a little on the late side, so did not have a problem. There are a lot of birds (sparrows, chickens, etc.) that are a bit of a nuisance. A lot of folks were picking up food to go.
