Stopped here for quick mexican lunch. Their seafood options are definitely better - shrimp burrito, fish burrito and fish tacos were great items. Ample seating inside and out. Friendly staff. Lots of sauces :) only downside is they don't serve alcohol.

In a place were food is expensive this little place is a great value and has great food. Red sauce has a bit of a kick. Fish tacos / burritos feature locally caught fresh fish.

We were in Hanalei and decided to give Federico's a try. The wait was a little long. I got the bean and cheese burrito with a side of rice and my husband got a burger, both were delicious.
