A funny story, Shea Grimm said that she doesn't think of Mexican as a 'heavy' food. Lucy's mom, the owner of Lucy's in Hilo, said that, "Mexican is heavier than Italian". I had to chuckle.
Lucy's in Hilo is one of two Mexican restaurants in Hilo that I frequent. The food is qusint, casual and reminds me of places south of Dallas.
Lucy's mom is the most wonderful woman. She makes a person feel welcome from the moment she says, "May I help you?".
Tonight, she was advertising her son's restaurant in Seattle.
Stop by when your in Hilo and see casual Mexican at its Hawaiian finest.
Trivia: Mom use to be a rollerdurby queen in Seattle!
