After hiking the Napoli Coast trail we stopped in Hanalei for a late lunch. The young woman at the counter was engaging and helpful. The Ono tacos amazing.

My husband and I both ordered the taco combo plates. The shrimp taco was delicious; however, the rice and beans had zero flavor. The guacamole was very good. They have three sauces to choose - two are very spicy. The only one we could eat...More

No fish when we walked but it arrived thru the back door so it was grilled in time for our taco. Burrito came with refried beans, so you should ask for something different if interested. Small scoops of guacamole and sour cream are included. I...More

I have eaten at Frederico's several times over the years but my last visit last year was the end. I had the tacos and they were so dry and crumbly that I needed water to help it down. It's also a bit of a worry...More
