Hawaii has always been a place where good Mexican food is, well, a challenge to find. Some places come and go so quickly that one can hardly finish a Margarita before the place is closing up shop. But, the North Shore's romance with all things Mexican has proven to be this restaurant's gold mine. Open for many years, this cozy little spot in Haleiwa has been a favorite of area locals for family dinners, dates, drinks and more. It's small, and the seating outside proves to be the best spot in the cooler evenings while the inside tables are best for lunch. The menu is traditional with a few island specialties like the fish tacos, and the ahi taco salad. - Lottie Tagupa
It’s good to find a place that actually knows what Mexican food should taste like! I’m tired of people talking about how good Taco Bell is or how good Qdoba is, they are both really bad compared to here and Cholo’s is just excellent!
This was the perfect place to stop in on a warm day of sight seeing and grabing some food to eat. It was very good and we got a table outside wich was nice and breezy. Loved the place and yes we would go back.
Got a free coupon to eat here and after I have to say wow, was I lucky to find one or what!! The Mexican cuisine was excellent, I don’t think I’ve known any other restaurant to rival their authenticity and quality. The drinks were great, everything was made fresh and you could tell by the tastes. This is a strong recommended spot to stop on your trip in Oahu. You will have no regrets! 5/5
The Cholo’s Carne Asada is tremendously awesome! Every time I’ve had cholos the food has always been great! I have always been treated with smiles and great hospitality. They have done a great job selecting the people to work their as well as those who prepare the grub. Kudos, 5 out of 5 in my book
I really had a blast in Hawaii!!! It was my first time being there and the fact that the weather was so nice made it that much more enjoyable!! When we ate at Cholos it was about 78 and there was a nice cool breeze around the island so we ate outside. It was really good and I would go there again. It was very good
I was recommended by a couple locals who eat there pretty frequently, and their recommendations were all good. The place was great and looked very nice and clean. The staff was really helpful and made it a very pleasant experience.
