Founder Luis Silva grew up in a Mexican household in San Diego California where his mother always had freshly made salsa in the refrigerator and tortillas warming on the stove. His passion and palate for authentic Mexican food developed over years of watching and learning from his mom cooking for the family. He also frequented all the best restaurants and taco shops in Mexico while traveling on surf trips.
When he moved to the North Shore of Oahu in 1992, the first thing he said was “Where is all the Mexican food?” He missed it so much he would bring coolers full of fresh tortillas and marinated Carne Asada back from California to share with his friends in Hawaii. He always dreamed of owning his own restaurant, and he told himself that he would one day bring his love of Mexican food to the people of Hawaii.
He started Luibueno’s Baja-Style Mexican Catering in 2005. He catered everything from birthday parties and weddings to surf contests such as the Triple Crown of Surfing. Luibueno’s quickly gained a reputation for stellar Mexican cuisine as well as his very personable service.
Luis met me, his wife Taryn in 2007, and our romantic and business relationship began almost immediately. After a couple of years building the catering business together, we both knew we had something special. With Luis’s palate for Mexican cuisine, my background in business and our combined years and passion for the restaurant industry, we decided to realize our dream and open our first restaurant.
Luibueno’s Mexican & Latin Cuisine opened in 2010. Our menu features Baja-Style Mexican recipes with fresh, made from scratch ingredients infused with European and Latin style influences. We focus on higher quality Mexican fare, both traditional and experimental while staying true to the wider range of authentic Mexican cooking. We also encourage creativity in the kitchen, and take pride in our Chef’s daily specials. Luibueno’s has an intimate, colorful and authentic setting with a casual, lively modern vibe. We understand that there is more to a great dining experience than good food and a fun atmosphere. Top-notch service is also our highest priority, and we are dedicated to ensuring that our guests feel welcomed and leave beyond satisfied after every visit.
Our family, which now includes two small children, has created a unique restaurant concept around original family recipes. This is much more than work to us, it is our home and our goal is to create a hospitable, enjoyable and satisfying value for all of our customers. We hope that you feel our passion and dedication to what we do throughout your dining experience!
