Established in 2008.

Taqueria Cruz is a fourth & fifth generation family-owned and operated business which was first established by our great-grandparents in the beautiful Wine Country of the Napa Valley. Our family got into the restaurant business in 1951, building a warm and successful eatery from the ground up, and we are willing to bet that they never imagined all of their hard work and love for cooking would one day reach beyond the vineyards and blossom on the beautiful island of Maui. We are very proud of our family history as well as our culture, and we know you will taste the love in our food. So please come and let us share with you what they have shared with us. From our family to yours, the love and aloha of Taqueria Cruz.

Fabulous Mexican Food!

A hidden treasure at the top end of the Dolphin Plaza across from Kamaole One on South Kihei Road. BYOB, no corkage. Order inside, sit outside at a picnic table, open a drink and then feast on the delicious Mexican food that is made to order and quickly appears in front of you. This is amazing... read more

Very good, local, 'fast' food Mexican spot. We had the pork burrito ($10) and chicken tacos ($3.50 each), along with free chips and salsa thanks to a Yelp coupon (you need to check in to access the coupon). I can't remember what my wife ordered, but she enjoyed it. A very good burrito, and our 15 month old with less... More

I was walking around trying to decide what I wanted to eat. This place has great food. They fry the chips for the chips and salsa while you wait and the burrito was HUGE.

3.5 Stars. I had read the good reviews for this place prior to our trip so when my husband and I found ourselves famished after a dive trip we headed over here. It was a little hard to locate from the car but I knew it was in the center and once we parked we found it tucked in the... More

The best Mexican option on Maui. Blindingly good burritos, quesadillas and the freshest nachos in town. Baja fish tacos well tasty, go for the Cajun garlic shrimp in anything for a great choice. Awesome salsa & guacamole. Cheap, quality, ultra-tasty dining since 1951! Go figure out why.

We ate here on our recent vacation. It was very convenient, because my sister had wanted to try Maui Fish and Chips, and we were able to do both. I had the pulled pork tacos, and my mom got the chicken. They were both delicious, but I'll warn people, they are not tex-mex, they are more authentic. So they are... More

When my family and I visit Maui, we will have take out from Taqueria Cruz at least twice during our visit. The beef quesadillas are my favourite and it comes with rice and beans. A very good sized yummy meal. A favourite add is on the tortilla chips you can order on the side. The best!! Looking forward to a... More

The tacos (any kind) are fantastic! The burritos are HUGE and not just full of beans and rice, there's a pile of meat !!! The queso dip is fabulous and with warm fresh chips. Don't forget to try the French fry nachos (make sure you're hungry) I have probably tried at least one of everything on their menu at one... More
