We stopped at Maui Tacos and grabbed some food to go. There were a few people sitting at the tables outside. The service was quick. The had about 6 different homemade salsas (The Maui Mex was very good). I had the fish tacos and was very pleased with the size and the quality. They used corn tortillas instead of flour... More

This is good, reliable Mexican food with a Hawaiian twist. I love the fish tacos here - they use swai, and it's very good. Our table had the tacos, and some burritos, and everything disappeared, This particular location is in a dying strip mall - even the hardware store wasn't busy. But then, the strip mall was dying the last... More

This is my second visit to Maui Tacos. It was as good as six years ago. The fish tacos were great and the fruit salsas were incredible. Even in the small shopping plaza is fun to sit outside and enjoy being in Lahaina w/o the crowds.

Chicken was spicy, but good. Fish in the tacos was very good. Everything else was so-so. Soft taco shells need something. Beans and rice were average.

We're glad you liked the chicken and fish in your tacos, but we're sorry to see that nothing else you had completely wowed you. Hopefully next time we can get you something that you're crazy about because that is what we are known for. Mahalo, The Maui Tacos Team More

ok, the regular fish tacos were wonderful. However, the fish tacos with the beans, I did not care for, but that's perhaps just me, my companions said they were good. Recommend the regular ones,, delicious!

It's hard to go wrong with the regular fish tacos, Don! Sorry you didn't care for the fish tacos with the beans, but it sounds like those just might not be the right tacos for you. Hope you're having a fun time visiting -- come back and see us before you take off! Mahalo, The Maui Tacos Team More

Seven years ago when I first ate here, I had a different experience than this time. My first experience eating here is what drove us back to enjoy the good inexpensive tacos.

It's disappointing to see that your most recent experience didn't quite measure up to your fist meal with us seven years ago. We can assure you that our prices are a direct reflection of the cost of high-quality ingredients we use. Unfortunately, as those prices go up, so do the prices of our food. Hopefully next time you're visiting, we... More

Stopped here while on our way to our resort since our room wasn't ready. Surprised at all of the recent crappy reviews. If you go to Maui tacos expecting a fast food experience, with healthier options - you won't be disappointed. My husband got the fish tacos, he said they were great.

Small fastfood restaurant. Order food at the counter. You get your food on paper plates with plastic cutlery. Softdrinks or water in paper cups. Little place to sit, outside are some tables and chairs. We had 3 different dishes with beef, pork and chicken. Food is ok.
