Enjoy tacos, wraps, quesadillas, and more with a Hawaiian twist at Loko Wraps. This Kailua-Kona hot spot for quick Mexican-inspired food serves dishes suitable for vegetarians, vegans, and meat-eaters that appeal to all appetites.

Loko Wraps started initially in 2014 at its Captain Cook location, which has since closed. However, the same family-owned and operated business remains strong in Kailua-Kona. Their dedication to serving unique dishes with quality ingredients keeps them popular with locals and visitors in their current location.

The menu at Loko Wraps includes freshly squeezed juices, smoothies, smoothie bowls, nachos, salads, wraps, bento boxes, taco plates, quesadillas, and sandwiches. Ingredients used in the food and drinks come from local farmers and vendors to optimize the healthfulness of the food while supporting local producers.  

Diners get to watch their food and drinks made in front of them. The resulting meals have the highest level of freshness and always meet the guests’ requests. For instance, if you prefer coconut water, apple juice, orange juice, or lemonade instead of rice milk for your smoothie base, just ask. Plus, you have the option to add boosters to your smoothie or juice to enhance the healthfulness of the drink. Boosters include whey protein, kava powder, spirulina, bee pollen, chia seeds, multivitamin, flax seeds, and other healthy add-ons.

Add one of the following visitor favorites to your order when you go to Loko Wraps:

Lilikoi Lani Dressing
The Lilikoi Lani Dressing is the main topping on salads and an optional topping for other entrees. This dressing mixes creamy poppyseed dressing with lilikoi for a sweet and flavorful topping that doesn’t pack the intense heat of the other Loko Sauces. Choose this as a topping for your wrap, quesadilla, nachos, or tacos if you want to have a well-balanced, mild sauce to complement the flavors.

Kalua Pork Nachos
The Kalua Pork Nachos come with a base of tortilla chips topped with mozzarella and nacho cheeses and pork. You get to choose from the Loko sauces, which include mild and hot options. For extra crunch, pineapple coleslaw and alfalfa sprouts go on top. The Kalua pork cooks slowly to infuse the meat with a sweet, smokey, and savory flavor. The smokiness of the pork works well with the nacho chips and cheese. Visitors report very generous portions of cheese and meat on their nachos and perfectly balanced flavors.

To enjoy a meatless version of smokey, barbecue nachos, try them with the BBQ jackfruit, a plant-based alternative to pork. Visitors who choose jackfruit for their nachos praise the dish as highly as those who get the pork nachos laud their choice.

Dragonfruit Bowl
The Dragonfruit Bowl is a smoothie you enjoy with a spoon. This fruit-heavy treat is a healthy dessert that will cool you off from the heat. It includes strawberries, bananas, dragonfruit, and pineapple as the fruits in the bowl. These layer with chia seeds, coconut flakes, granola, agave, and bee pollen. This generous smoothie bowl will fill you up without making you feel weighed down or guilty for indulging.

Pineapple Coleslaw
Though a simple side or topping for the wraps and salads, the Pineapple Coleslaw deserves its mention. People often rave about the flavor of this crunchy side, saying that it and the Coconut Rice are both die for dishes. Even people who claim not to like slaw enjoy the pineapple flavor of the slaw at Loko Wraps. This slaw is so good, that you might want to order an extra side of it even if you have it included inside your wrap.
