It's definitely more of a fast food place, but its good! Perfect quick meals for when you've been at the beach all day and want something easy. Also they make a decent margarita! Fish tacos were good, taste pretty fresh, and the burritos were huge. I also had the nachos one night and it was a large portion.

Not a fancy restaurant, just a step up from fast food chain, BUT the food is excellent. Large servings, take your pick from the extensive menu, it's all great. Very nice staff.

Was sold by the sticker on the door which said "the best tacos in Maui". Not sure who reviewed it or if there are other taco places - but this one is on the same level as Taco Bell. Tacos were soggy, the mango salad was pretty bad as well. Salsas were good though.

Man, that's pretty troubling to hear, Alex, and we're sorry to have dropped the ball when you came by. Like you said, we're known for having awesome tacos, and it's not just the sticker on our door that would say so! With that in mind, we really hope you'll give us another shot to knock it out of the park... More

Lets face it.. this is not a fancy Mexican restaurant it's more like a fast food chain type facility. My wife and I stopped for lunch and found the establishment, quality and service to be very good for what it is. After reading some of these harsh reviews, I gotta say... lighten up people.

Not real mexican food and poorly made. There is no knowledge of whats good or even how to make it. Crap.

We're honestly surprised to read this, considering the awesome reviews we usually get from both guests and critics. While we have to say that our two executive chefs, Alfonso Navarro and Pepe Vega, can't imagine what you're talking about, we obviously must have dropped the ball when you came in. We're not sure what happened that gave you this impression,... More

The tacos taste great, but if you need gluten-free it's not for you. Even though the ingredients are gluten-free no care is taken to keep them from becoming cross-contaminated because all items are cooked on the same grill.

We understand how important it is to avoid cross-contamination, Terry, so we're concerned if you got a different impression when you stopped by recently. Each member of our team is trained on food safety issues like this one, but we'll definitely follow up with them to make sure we're all on the same page. Thanks for bringing it to our... More

We really liked Maui Tacos, but have to say there were better options on the island for fish tacos. We were a bit disappointed that the environment didn't live up to the hype - but the food and service did. We felt that the tacos were "simple" but that the flavor was phenomenal. If you're in Kihei, you really shouldn't... More

I love fish tacos, so I ordered one ...and it was OK. Not special, not extra unique or served in an interesting manner. OK, so you get to choose your salsa from a salsa bar comprised of 4 choices..not such a big deal. The taco had two corn tortillas, nice grilled white fish of indestinct species, shredded cabbage and a... More

We're sorry to hear that our fish tacos were just average, especially you're such a fish taco fan!

As for the tables, we do clean them frequently throughout the day, but we definitely want... More

We are not big eaters and like finding places that we can purchase smaller plates of food. Food is good and a great value, it is not for ambiance. We loved Alexander's and were so bummed it closed, this is a nice substitute.
