14 bucks (cash only) for a delicious dinner! I loved it all--I had the seared ahi with a cream sauce to die for! My hubby had pulled pork. Both had rice, salad, and macaroni salad. We took it back to our condo to watch the sunset. We plan on returning before we leave Kihei!

There is just one very nice lady that runs this food truck and she is super friendly and very fast. I got the coconut shrimp with sweet thai sauce and it was awesome. The shrimp was big and cooked well and the breading was super crunchy and the sauce was fantastic. Worth a stop for sure!

Our recent trip, we noticed a food truck while driving down Alanui ke ali'i past it on a couple of days, finally gave it a try......great food, fried calimari, pulled pork, garlic shrimp, coconut shrimp and katsu chicken. Even tried a Slice of the lemoncello cake and the lilikoi cheesecake. Worth the stop. Yummy

This place was awesome. So awesome, we ended up eating 3 of our 9 lunches here. Renee was super friendly and made some delicious food. We had chicken katsu the first day, panko mahi mahi the second, and coconut shrimp on the last day. The portions are huge and we shared each plate with no complaints. Plus you'll have a... More

The meals are on the expensive side of a food truck ($10-$15) but are huge portions and was more than enough for my girlfriend and I to split one order for a lunch. We got the pulled pork and it was AMAZING! Very tender and all cooked perfectly. We received a very generous portion of meat on a huge bed... More

A very friendly guy was running the grill when I went there and gave me some good tips for things to do that were happening the week that I was there. I ate the tempura Mahi mahi with white rice and it was fairly good. Only two pieces when da kitchen gives three of the same size, and kinaole doesn't... More

My girlfriend and I visited Kinaole grill food truck the other day and we forgot our american cash. But the woman serving us gave us our meals on the house and told us to come back and pay her later, which we of course did yesterday. The food was excellent, great Mahi Mahi and coconut shrimp and a short walk... More

There are two of these trucks now, one in Kihei and one that goes up north of Lahaina. We only had the Lilikoi cheesecake in Kihei, which was equally as good as the cheesecake from the other truck. We got supper from the other truck twice, probably would have been more but she only comes to Kahana Falls, the resort... More

When looking for dinner in Kihei, I didn't expect to get the best dinner of my entire trip from a food truck. Yet this is exactly what happened at Kinaole Grill. The owner was super nice and engaging. She gave lots of recommendations on what to do around the island. But I was not expecting the meal she cooked up.... More
