Luquin's Restaurant Review

: A little bit funky and a definite throwback to the Old West, this spot is seemingly stuck in a time warp. Still, meals are good, inexpensive, true Mexican fare and portions are huge. We recommend the enchiladas, carnitas and burritos. Anyone seeking a taste of Hawaii with their meal can order the lilikoi or mango margaritas rimmed with li hing mui powder. The beer and bar are also not to be missed. Bottom line: Half the fun is people-watching --- the booths will likely be filled with interesting denizens of the area.
