On our search for the best tacos on Maui, we came across Taqueria Cruz because our wives were getting a massage and we were wasting time. While they were getting rubbed down, my friend and I sat down for a couple of street tacos, I had fish and pork, great is the only word to describe them. We liked them... More

Great mexican food, worth looking for. Great tasting, great prices. Gluten Free options available. It is just a small take out place with outdoor covered seating. BYOB. We grabbed some food and brought a couple of beers. Wonderful. You could also order and take it to the beach. Try this local restaurant. You can always eat at the big chain... More

This was awesome. This place is a tiny hole in the wall Taqueria. There is tables outside and a small counter with the menu. I ordered the veggie burrito with sour cream. I have to say this was one of the best burritos I've had on Maui. Now I haven't had authentic Mexican food before so I cant say if... More

Went here twice during our four-day stay in Kihei. Burritos are great, especially for vegetarians. Full of very tasty and creative fillings (poblano pepper mix is top notch), you will be happy and satisfied after every meal. You can also "build your own" burrito, with many options to choose from--all equally delicious. Try this place--you won't be sorry.

The place is hidden on the second floor we were looking for something to eat. I had the chicken tacos, and they are one of the best tacos a had in along time reminded me of my trip to Mexico.amazing.

There are some good restaurants on Maui that serve Mexican food and we have tried several of them. Taqueria Cruz is the best we have found. Terrific tacos, and get a side of the pinto beans. They are awesome. Priced right and the friendly staff look after you with great recommendations. I need to go back and try a burrito!... More

What I love best is the open atmosphere, BYOB, live music, and great food. Every time we stopped by there was someone singing their heart out. I know they state only weekends have live music, but that is NOT true. Maybe they just 'plan' the music on the weekends and let others just show up the rest of the time... More

If you really like true Mexican Food, Taqueria Cruz if by far Maui's Best Mexican Food and BEST Fish Tacos on the Island. It's located at Dolphin Plaza in Kihei, but worth the drive if you are staying or living on any side of the Island and the value is great. it's BYOB and Live Music nightly. You can follow... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat at on Maui. Very good Mexican food and especially delicious fish tacos. It's BYOB if you want to have a beer. Hard to find it sits in the corner of a strip mall but worth looking for. Don't miss this place if you are on Maui.
