First meal off of the plane! It was...everything!

We stopped here after our Hana Road day trip. It was about 8pm when we walked up, and although they usually close around then and nobody else was around the gent manning the stand didn't hesitate to get some tacos going for us. He suggested starting with just one because they were pretty big, but we both ended up getting... More

If you have the chance to hang out in Haiku, which I highly reccomend, come here for lunch or an evening snack. The geckos will serenade you and the wild chickens are always fun to watch. The fish taco is amazing!

In the parking lot of the haiku market offering tacos made with fish, chicken, or pork. Lots of topping and the price point was only $6. I will definitely be back.

New location in Poipu next to Puka Dog. Poipu Shopping Village 2360 Kiahuna Plantation Dr Koloa HI 96756 I got the shrimp burrito and it was perfect! My wife got the Classic burrito and she complained about it the whole time but what do you expect, brining a Mexican to a Hawaiian Taco stand :)

Cheap, big and delicious tacos! Tim, the owners husband, was working there the week that we stayed in Haiku. He's super nice and happy to give tips on what to see and do in Maui. We went back to him almost every day for tacos and will definitely be back when we return to Maui! - Emily & James

Every time that I have the chance, I stop by and eat at LEAST two large pork tacos! $6.00 for 7-layered, LARGE tacos! The pork is my favorite, flavored sweetly, just enough spice, avocado, and homemade salsa to die for!!! Haiku is a cute and quiet little town, so if you are looking for a quiet little date on a...
