Went there for lunch. Very good food, the chips and salsa were excellent. The first basket of chips and salsa are on the house. Lot of people when we went. The service was great and fast. Good prices. Good portions.

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.
