It was flavorful, affordable, and the service was fast and helpful. They have a huge variety of flavors to choose from. I recommend having it on the Macadamia Nut Ice Cream. It is a great treat to have on a hot day.

Ulalani's whatever its called, the famous place. This is better shave ice more authentic, better tasting, no line and just down the street. Get the cream topping thing on it, that makes it taste way better. Shave ice is just alright for me -- as Randy Jackson would say -- but this is the best of it.

The scoop of locally made ice cream at the bottom, the quality syrups, the cream on top. So refreshing!

My daughters always enjoy shaved ice so we stopped by Local Boys West after a snorkel adventure. A lot of flavors to choose from and it was the first time my girls had ice cream and gummy bears with the shaved ice, which they loved. Price was in line with Maui shave ice!! We stopped by on a Thursday afternoon... More

We were recommended to go here for shave ice and it was wonderful!!!! To be clear, you are not going here for the decor...it's rather rustic, but don't let that deter you! The shave ice was so delicious and the girl working there was great. We clearly needed an education on all things "shave ice" and she was happy to... More

Looking for a chilly treat to beat the Maui heat? Head to Local Boys West shave Ice. TONS of flavor options and combinations. Our favorite is always the Large shave Ice; heres how to eat it: vanilla ice cream on the bottom, topped with three flavors of syrup ( we like passionfruit, coconut and lime) and topped with Maui cream...

Li Hing Mui, Pineapple, and Mango with Mac Nut Ice Cream in the bottom is the way to go here! More than 57 flavors to choose from to top your shaved Ice! I live the "Local Flavor" here and I love supporting them when it comes to shaved Ice in Lahaina!!!

Local Boys is located near the large banyan tree in Lahaina. It's a great place to grab some shave ice. They have a large assortment of flavors and several sizes. The service was quick and the staff very friendly. We always stop here when in Lahaina.

Sooooo good. I liked this shaved ice more than Ulalanis. There are 2 locations, Lahaina and Kihei. The Lahaina one is better. They have more flavors and the legendary Papa size for $6.50. Lahaina location has over 57 flavors and no extra charge for ice cream and other toppings. Mmm im gonna miss this!!!
