We are all beggars here. Wondering if we've made the right dining choice. Being a fussy eater I was pleased with the friendly suggestions to my many questions - star 1. I liked the flexible menu, where I ordered a Chile Verde plate with side of blackened garlic shrimp - star 2. I listened to soothing live music while waiting... More

We had the taco with shredded beef and burrito with pulled pork - both were just excellent. Will definitely come here again during our short stay in Maui.

After visiting Mexico, I am very picky about the Mexican food that I eat. Many places disappoint me, however I was very pleasantly surprised to find an awesome Mexican restaurant in Maui. You must order the shredded beef as your choice of meat, it is to die for. You know it must be a great place when many of the... More

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
