We enjoyed the welcoming corn chips and salsa on arrival while deciding from the extensive menu options. All were satisfied from the three year old to the fifty-plus! A good introduction to Mexican food that was delicious and filling. Try the pudding at the end - divine silky custard.

My husband and I went there just because the restaurant that we wanted to go to wasn't open yet. Around 4:00 not many are open. The place was totally empty, and we sat and ordered right away. The service was fast since there were no other customers, but the food was just okay. I think that they used a microwave... More

The thing about Hawaii is that there aren't really any good Mexican places here. I've eaten here several times and have never been blown away. It's just ok, maybe not even. The first time I went I ordered the chicken quesadilla, the chicken was dry and tasted like it was old and had just been heated up. I did recently... More

Authentic, friendly, quick service in downtown Kailua! We simply found it on the GPS, easy to find, but not easy to park. There is a public parking garage behind the restaurant on the next street! We had ceviche tacos, very nice, split an order & there was plenty! We're from Texas & we were really surprised to find such authentic... More

The place was clean and the staff was friendly and able to accomodate an infant and to provide a fussy mom with food to meet his needs. The salsa did not impress, but the tacos and fahitas were tasty and hot.

Waitress was rolling eyes when asking questions about menu which was NOT clear as to what was being offered. When coke tasted like diet, which was NOT wanted, she pushed back about it saying it was NOT diet, and we had to ask for another one, which tasted as it should. Served a FILTHY coffee cup with black grease on... More

I wish there was a designation of 3.5 out of 5. This really isn't just "average", but I have to leave room in my reviews for that WOW factor. Los Garcia's doesn't have it, at least not on my day. But it is very decent and worthy of return visits for sure. Los Garcia's leaves you adequately satisfied with an... More

it's a stretch to call this a Mexican restaurant. Salsa is canned, not fresh, pretty tasteless entrees, with yucky rice. Their refried beans are ok.

Stopped here for lunch yesterday after beaching at Lanikai. Parking sucks. Service was not the friendliest. However, food was very good. We split an order of nachos with shredded beef and a side of refried beans. Both were very tasty! The complimentary chips (good and crispy) and salsa (rather blah chipotle-based) were a good accompaniment for the refries. Didn't drink... More
