I had the carne asada and chicken tinga tacos. There was so good, the chicken was amazing! I could have eaten a few more. I tried my son's burger and wow, it was delicious. The service was great even though it was busy.

I was pleasantly surprised at how great the food here was. We landed here on Taco Tuesday so you can grab various taco "deals", though I use that word loosely since everything here is a little pricey. Two Steak Tacos for $8 and two Chicken Tinga tacos for $6 don't exactly scream "Taco Tuesday Deal" in my book but they were incredibly good. I also did the Salsa Tasting where you get unlimited chips and 3 salsa flavors for $6.75. Ouch.

Their Tortilla Soup was excellent but, again, pricey at $7 for a cup. Yes, cup. A glass of guava and pineapple juice for the kids ran $3 and keiki chicken tenders with fries was $8 (and a lot of food). Another shock was the kids cheeseburger with fries which ran $14. For a kids meal! Now, it's important to note that this was a massive burger (adult sized) and also one of the best I've had on the island so kudos to them for that. Still, $14 kids meals?

Service was a little slow since our waitress seemed way overworked but still good overall. So a $70 bill for a family of four with tax and (generous) tip. Would I eat here again? Yes, in a heartbeat because it's just that good. In fact, we almost ate here again the next day but it didn't work out.

You won't like my review, we were most disappointed. Didn't enjoy the drinks or food we had there and found the service lacking. Would not go back.

Tortilla Republic has a lot of positive reviews for its modish ambiance and flavorful food (with the margaritas being singled out for a few praises, and the guacamole being recommended).

On the negative side, the recurring complaints pertain to the high-end prices and long wait times – with the service from the staff being a mixture of good and bad reviews.
