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

We had the coconut shrimp, calamari and garlic shrimp. Everything was fantastic. Even thought the some of the food was fried - nothing was greasy. Portions were large. Will go back again.

Our first time here was simply because we were on a quest for good coconut shrimp. HOLY COW. We came back the next day for more, and branched out into the BBQ pulled pork and cheesecake with some kind of passion fruit-like sauce. The salad dressing is phenomenal, and she won't divulge the secret ingredient(s). Always a good sign in... More

Yup, it is a food truck, but do not let that fool you. It is good and it is simple. During our stay we went twice. The first time we decide to just dip our toes in and only ordered appetizers - or should I say pu-pu's, Last night we ordered dinner, went down to Kam II, sat at a... More
