Very traditional and tasty mexican in Makawao. Reasonable prices and Large servings. Good Margarittas! You did have to pay for the chips and salsa, however.

Great vibe with a friendly atmosphere. Food is great and the meals are massive compared to Australian servings. Our hostess ‘T’ was exceptional! I would recommend this restaurant!
