Description: A must for visitors and locals alike! Our shave ice is made old style with soft fluffy shaved ice saturated with a wide variety of delicious flavors. We offer ice cream on the bottom, mochi, azuki beans and cream over the top all at no extra charge. You won't find shave ice as good as ours anywhere else on the island. This is the real deal, you'll keep coming back for more! We also sell Roselani ice cream and many other local favorites. Try our location in Kihei too.

Went here to see the difference between shaved ice on the island...it was ok but not the best because I found the Snow Cap (sweetened condensed milk mixture) too watered down (I know personal preference). However there was no line up at this place like the more popular Ululani's where the line up was at least 10 people long.

This place makes great, finely shaved ice and has a ton of flavors. You can get a scoop of ice cream on the bottom of your snow cone if you like. Then your shaved ice goes on top of that. Next they pour their signature "cream" on top which was yummy! Of all the shave ice places we tried, Matsumoto's... More

Ok folks - as you're getting ready for your trip to Maui, you need to heed my advice: 1. Go to Local Boys in Lahaina OR 2. Go to Local Boys in Kihei. First, once you have a shave ice, you're going to want another, which begs, why wouldn't you want to eat a buy one, get one free every... More

My family was raving about something called “shave ice" and pressuring me to try it. I had no interest, thinking it was similar to our "snow cones" back in Maine which are just crushed ice with sickly-sweet flavored syrups. Finally I gave in and am glad I did. Delicious! It's a creamy mix of finely shaved ice with amazing flavors... More

The ice was soft and fine. Lots of syrups to choose from. My favorite shaved ice! You can get a scoop of ice cream and also have Hawaiian cream pored on top which made it even more incredible.

This was our first shaved ice 'experience' and did not disappoint. The staff were very helpful, and the icecream, delicius syrups, and cream 'on the top', made for a very refreshing treat!

I have to say this was the worst shaved ice. We have been coming to Maui for the last four year's. On our first trip we tried local boys and I was unimpressed. Being that we were last here in the first week of August (when the hurricanes were to hit) we decided to try local boys again, just as... More

We have been to Hawaii many times and we always get shave ice - you have to - you're in Hawaii! Local Boys is the best. They have the best flavors of both shave ice flavoring and ice cream, and then they top it off with cream - delicious!
