Great tasting food at reasonable prices

The very friendly staff went out of their way to explain the diverse menu & make reccomendatons to us. I had the BBQ pulled pork plate & my wife the chicken plate, both with rice & beans & topped with tortilla chips. The food was fresh & tasted great.

For years my family and I have been enjoying the great food at Maui tacos. Over the past year the quality has gone down hill and I can now say that it is all the locations not just one. We will no longer eat their food - they made their name on quality and now serve crap. Stay away

Finding this place wasn't that hard, but it was well worth the effort. The fish tacos weren't the best that I have had, but were very good for the price. The crispy tacos will also be a treat for perogy lovers.

So glad you got a chance to come check us out! We're pleased to see you enjoyed the tacos -- we've never thought of comparing the crispy ones to perogy, but you're so right. Hope you get a chance to come back soon. Mahalo, The Maui Tacos Team More

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
