El Burrito is a great quick good lunch spot. The food is so fresh and everything tastes delicious. There's only street parking so have to allow time for that unless you call ahead and just do a pick up.

Originally Mama's cooking kept us coming back because we enjoyed her food so much. We've tried just about everything on the menu and found the generous helpings to be consistently delicious.

Reasonably priced, standard menu Mexican food made by authentic Mexicans. This is a simple, small place with just tables and few furnishings on the wall. However, I've been by four times and have never been disappointed. Know too, that "healthy eating" choices consist of veggies and beans as the meat dishes have some oils, as would be found south of... More

For those of us that have occasional cravings for good mexican food in Hawaii, you know that it is very difficult to find. Having spent most of my life in California, I do know what mexican food is supposed to taste like and finding El Burrito was a total pleasure to find! I have been there twice (so far) and... More
