Probably the best food we had while in Maui. The location is a strip mall, seating is outside in a covered public space. You order from a counter and wait for your name to be called to pick up your order. The people working there were super friendly and helpful and patient. A little salsa bar on the side to... More

I was disappointed in Maui Taco. It was highly recommended. But I had to eat it with a fork. The fish was mild flavored. It was stacked high with cabbage and nuggets of fish. My friend ordered the same thing and she felt the same. My husband had a burrito and he liked it. My friends husband had the pork... More

Karen, we're really bummed to see we didn't wow you. Not quite sure why you had to eat our Tacos with a fork, they are all made with a double stack taco-something almost none of our competitors do, hope they weren't too big? But it is all about the flavor so I hope you give us another shot and see... More

Beans were dry and looked like they were scraped from the bottom of the pan. Rice was also dry. Only a couple of shrimp in the shrimp tacos. The steak tacos were decent.

Jeff E, Owner at Maui Tacos Lahaina, responded to this review

While we're glad that you enjoyed our steak tacos, Richard, our shrimp tacos should always be just as fresh and tasty -- so we're sorry that that wasn't the case for you. It's not the norm for our rice and beans to be dry, so we hope you'll consider giving us another go. Mahalo, The Maui Tacos Team More

I was so shocked to see the guy prepare my taco with bare hands (no gloves) I had to take a photo or no one would believe it. I stood there at the window as the cook grabbed handfuls of cabbage from the prep tray and put it on my taco tossing the excess back into the bin. He basically... More

Andrea, I understand your reaction, however it is not warranted.We are super cautious about food safety and study this issue all the time to ensure we are up to date on the facts.There have been studies after studies that show that not using gloves is safer than using gloves-I know that is not what you want to hear but it...

We wanted a simple taco meal and were not let down by this place. The reviews are honest and accurate. We had the fish tacos prepared both the Maui way and the traditional way. We were not disappointed.

I had the grilled fish tacos. I thought they were ok, but not great. I had one in a soft tortilla and one in a hard shell. The proportion of fish was good for the price. The fish was chunky and the sauce on it was tasty. I have had better fish tacos, but for the price, you can't complain.... More

We have been coming to Lahina for years and used to eat at Maui Tacos regularly. It has gone completely down hill, unfortunately. From the fish tacos to the burritos and the salsa bar are just not what they used to be. They don't even put limes, cilantro and jalapeños on the salsa bar any more. Even the staff don't... More

We love Maui Tacos in other locations, but not this one. Horrible service, didn't get what we ordered, food was gross! These are not franchises so someone isn't checking on this one. Drive to the Napili or Kihei one.
