Located in the small and popular Kinipopo Shopping Center in Wailua, this small taco hotspot is a popular spot for area locals and island visitors who seek something inexpensive and tasty. The setting is casual, friendly and colorful, but it’s the menu that has made this spot quite popular. Garlic Shrimp Quesadillas, enchiladas, fajitas and nachos are all authentic and satisfying. There is a small bar that offers cold beer and patio seating to enjoy. The parking can be an issue especially during the after-work and dinner hour. The lot is small and not well organized, so bring your patience along with your appetite for awesome Mexican food.

Location:  4-356 Kuhio Highway, Kinipopo Shopping Center
