Vegan-friendly Mexican restaurant and bar

Restaurant, Bar

Cholo's is a popular Mexican restaurant located in the North Shore area of Oahu. They get pretty crowded, even on week days, so make a reservation if you have a large group.

Both the rice and the beans are vegan, so you can get any number of vegan options, tacos, burritos, grilled veggie plate, grilled veggie platter, etc. They also have a number of fresh squeezed juices (including guava) and 25 styles of margaritas.

Both indoor and outdoor seating is available and they don't allow smoking in the restaurant.

Cholo's displays Mexican artwork from Oaxaca, Mexico on the wall, much of which is for sale.

There are several vegan choices on the menu. Maybe not the best Mexican food I've ever had, but Cholo's is our restaurant of choice when we're in Haleiwa. They also have take-out for the days when we're too wet/sandy/tired to stay. The staff is always friendly, the outdoor seating is wheelchair accessible and a good option for my kids and service dog. The one downside is the restroom, which is a one-seater around the corner of the building. Sometimes there's a long wait, and once it was out of order and we had to go eat somewhere else.

Great restaurant on the north shore. The server we had knew what vegan meant and recommended options. I had black bean tacos with rice and refried beans. Cholo's has a very interesting, charming atmosphere and we had a lot of fun there!
