Mexican Restaurants on Oahu
Celebrate Cinco de Mayo by eating at one of these Mexican restaurant on the island of Oahu. If you love Mexican food, you will want to try all of these Hawaii Mexican restaurants at one time or another. I like many of them, but my personal favorite - if I am evaluating food over atmosphere - is the tiny fast food cafe in Waikiki's International Marketplace.

The restaurants at the Aloha Tower Marketplace often The Aloha Tower Marketplace Shopping Center is their 4th annual Cinco de Mayo Celebration beginning at 4:00 p.m. On Saturday, May 5, 2007.
