I am new to the island and took my in-laws up here to eat. We had been shopping in the area the day prior and it smelled delicious. My refried beans had been microwaved and a portion of them had been blown up as a result, something that clearly doesn't happen when you cook them on a stove. The food... More

Stopped in here on our second visit to Hawaii (didnt have time to stop in on the first visit). We each had a great lunch at Cholo's after hearing so many good things about this place we were exciting to be dining here and were not let down. As we sat down we were given corn chips and salsa to... More

We stopped here on our way up to the north shore and was not disappointed at all. The Chile Verde was excellent and extremely spicy and the kids loved their beef tacos. Service was great and fast as well.

The servers are very friendly and helpful. The bartender has a nice heavy pour. And the food is yummy. We had the fish tacos and they really hit the spot. The decor is cool and the vibe is chill. You get more than enough food for your money.

Our entire family loved this restaurant. The salsa is fresh and made daily in house. The guacamole was very tasty. I would highly recommend the fajitas. Two in our party enjoyed the burrito. The Mojito was good, but not great. They have a nice selection of beers on tap. Enjoy!

If you're looking for authentic Mexican food, this is not the place. This was, however, a nice change from fish and plate lunch! There service was good and so were the margaritas.

After a long day of hiking we decided to stop here for dinner and margaritas. The frozen margarita was just a blended drink that tasted watered down. My husband ordered a margarita on the rocks with a different type of tequila and it was better but cost $12.50. For dinner we had the carne asada and the spinach & cheese... More

Cholos had been recommended for great margaritas so when we went to Haleiewa today we made sure we stopped. We had just eaten at one of the shrimp trucks so we ordered an ahi taco and a shrimp taco a la carte. My mango margarita was huge and made with fresh mango. It was a real treat. The tacos were...
