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.

We went there on Tuesday night because their tacos are not only very good but cheaper and they had live music. You can BYOB and enjoy a cheap night out. Everybody in our group had the tasty fish tacos that night.

This was right across from our fabulous beach and in the same plaza as Maui Gelato, so I went there lots. The food is really good, and a good price. Those nice Aloha juice drinks in the cooler along with the usual Coke. It's just in an alcove of the plaza so I was comfortable to sit outside on the... More

We went here with friends for the 2 buck taco night on Tuesday nights. Byob with mix available reasonably at the restaurant. Live music provided by a local artist and it was very good. He got the crowd going and we were not pressured to leave our table all night. Place is a bit of a "hole in the wall"... More

After we finally got to our vacation rental after a long day of traveling, we were hangry! So we found this little taco place on trip advisor and it was close by so we gave it a chance. Everything was good, very basic, but we were a bit confused by the $2 taco and $6 dinner signs and advertisements. Our... More

Taqueria Cruz is located in a strip mall in Kihei. Order inside and grab a table outside. Husband had chicken and grilled fish tacos. I ordered enchiladas. Both were served with rice and beans. Including soft drinks and tax the total was $25. Good spot for a quick, flavorful meal

We love this place, great food, non-greasy and affordable! We like to get ours to go then go across the street to watch the sunset. Highly recommend.

I'm so glad we stumbled on this place. It's in a strange location inside a strip mall with few tables outside…but the food is AMAZING. I loved their tacos. If you're in Kihei and are on the lookout for some good inexpensive food, hit up Taqueria Cruz!
