Their food and drink are exceptional. So much so,it is difficult to get parking. They have the best salsa in town and they may make their own chips. I've seen big piles of them in the kitchen.

I'm not an expert on Mexican food, but I totally enjoyed my outing to Mexico Restaurant. The service was good, and the portions were huge! The food was good, and the atmosphere is so great. I love how they decorated the place. I would definitely recommend this place!

Considering what the area looks like, We were pleasantly surprised of the flavor. it's our first 30 minutes on the ground in Honolulu… We were hungry and the number one spot on Trippet visor was across the street. It is a Hawaiian restaurant, with about a 25 minute wait. We were way way too hungry to wait. And we all... More

Stopped in for a quick meal early in the day. Place was empty. Staff was great! Gabriel was attentive and quick with the water refills. Chips were okay, salsa was too much like tomato soup for my liking. My fajita burrito was very good. Rice and beans were excellent. Atmosphere was typical Mexican restaurant and very nice and clean. It... More

Great Mexican food is hard to find in Honolulu. This family owned restaurant provides good food. I prefer Tex Mex over CA or NM styles. The menu is diverse. But, it does not offer fajita type meats for nachos, quesadillas, etc. I have not tried the lobster or crab enchiladas because the meat is previously frozen. There are lots of... More

Overall pretty standard Mexican food. The salsa was good but the chips were kind of stale. Atmosphere was good, but the live music can be very loud depending on where you sit.

At first glance, the area in which you find the restaurant is located may make you feel like you went the wrong way, but once you find this little slice of heaven you will soon realize you made the right choice. The Gods was exactly what I remember of my favorite foods from the Great mainland Mexican restaurants and the... More

This place has been around for a while but we never tried it until recently. It's nothing to look at from the outside but when you step in you feel you are stepping in to a southwestern state. The food is plentiful and tasty. We had burritos but felt it needed a little more salt or salsa. Service was excellent.... More
