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!

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. While the tacos weren't bad, I feel like prices have definitely increased. I got one taco and my husband for two. They aren't particularly large so I should've... More

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. Although I really wanted to try the mango... More

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.

I have been coming to Maui taco since the first one opened and was known for a good vibe and fresh delicious food..since the chain was sold awhile back you can see a steady decline in the quality of food ..the cleanliness and the attitude of the staff...I went this year to Lahaina and it was so filthy I walked...

No matter how busy we are, the salsa bar shouldn't be empty and dirty, Richard. I can imagine your frustration since you've been such a loyal customer for so long. Our staff also shouldn't be using their bare hands to handle any of the food, so I assure you we will be following up on this to make sure this... More

I've probably been to Maui Tacos at least 10 or 12 times at one of their various locations. I'm not sure if it was this location in a strip mall that is getting run down or a general decline in the quantity and quality of the food. The taco was fair; not up to well known national chain standards. I... More

I had the fish tacos one day and a pork burrito another day. Both were fabulous. They have a salsa bar that is widely varied and all of the ones I tried were great. I was too chicken to try the really hot ones. I had the black beans both times with my meal and they were very good. Can't... More

It's great to see you were able to try both the fish tacos and the pork burrito and thought they were fabulous! We can't blame you for sticking to the milder salsa -- everyone's taste buds are different! We're just glad you found several salsas you liked. The bathroom situation isn't ideal right now, but we're glad that didn't stop... More
