Service: The service is usually excellent at Mexico restaurant and the food comes out of the kitchen really fast. The best waiter is actually Mexican so if you see him there its worth your while to site in his corner as he can really “work a room.” Only one time have we had a really crappy waitress who left our food sitting on the window ledge for a good 10 min before serving it cold and soggy which has pretty disappointing.
Food: The food is average-good. Its not the best Mexican food we have ever had, however, its one of the best in Hawaii for sure. They have all the traditional dishes, tacos, enchiladas, burritos, and a full bar stocked with tequila and a variety of beers. The chips and salsa are really good and they must make them fresh daily so try not to fill up before your huge entree arrives. One thing that is really nice about Mexico Restaurant is that they offer some healthy options including grilled fish tacos & burritos served with salad instead of fried with beans & rice.
Favorite Dishes: Fresh Burrito, Tamale, Mixed Fajitas (Come out sizzling and large enough to share!), Salsa, Chips, Beans & Rice, and ALL the salads (TIP- if you like Crab is da fresh kind!).
Atmosphere: The atmosphere is one of the best things about this restaurant. Its really spacious and themed to perfection. The bar is very quaint and the tables, art and vibe is totally Mexican through and through. It’s a nice place to meet with friends or have a bite with your family as its kid friendly and overall very casual.
Consistency: The consistency is good. We have been 4-6 times and its pretty consistent. The food is just average Mexican food and nothing fancy so if your itching for a fixing…. Mexico restaurant is a good place to come even though its a bit out of the way.
Parking: There is free parking at Mexico Restaurant. The lot, however, is super small and can be difficult to park in during lunch or peak dinner time when the place is packed. Most often for dinner they have a valet guy outside to help customers so if you need help it may be available and will need it to get out of that lot in the dark… especially after a margarita or two!
