A lejandro’s Mexican Food has been in existence since 2011, when founder Alejandro Al- varado started selling tacos in the back of the bar and nightclub called Maddog Saloon Waikiki. He later obtained a lo- cation at 2831 Kalihi St., the company’s original brick-and-mortar eatery, that
opened on Cinco de Mayo in 2015. “That location is still going strong and we have a full bar and small area for
seating there,” Alvarado notes. Previously, the company also had a site in Maili, which has since closed, but now has a new location at 949 Kap-
ahulu Ave.
“We were lucky to get such a central
location and were able to open in the middle of the pandemic. We created this walk-up window on the sidewalk that helped keep people spaced out and safe social distancing. At Alejan- dro’s, we want our guests to get away from their worries for just a little bit
and come in and enjoy tacos, tequila and more,” Alvarado emphasizes. “We pride ourselves on making good food and giving great service.”
Among the delicious meals available at Alejandro’s is the Three Taco Com- bo Plate. It features three tacos of your choice with a scoop of rice and beans, along with a drink ($13.50-$16.50). Customers can also get a Veggie Com- bo Box ($11.50).
Another popular item is the Wet Burrito Combo Plate (choice of meat or veggie $13.50-$15.50). This includes a 10-inch burrito topped with a house- made tomato-based enchilada sauce.
Served with a scoop of rice and beans, it is garnished with fresh onions, cilantro, cheese, sour cream and black olives. The Mexi-Bowl ($9) is like a burrito, but without a shell and served in a bowl.
“Our most famous meat are the car- nitas. We slow cook them in the oven overnight and then finish them off in the flattop till the pork is nice and crispy. Our most popular meat is the carne asa- da steak. We use a good cut of chuck roll steak and season it with our house seasoning mix,” Alvarado shares.
“What’s unique to us is our wet bur- ritos and our fine fresh margaritas. We do a local li hing mui margarita, and the
