Maui Tacos!

You can't go wrong with Maui Tacos. My favorite place for fish tacos. Their menu plate include choice of beans and chips. The sauce accompanying the tacos was exceptional .

Given the number of Mexican restaurants and food trucks in this area, I can't imagine why I would go back here. I had the nachos and there was nothing very tasty at all in this dish. The chips were pre-fab, the ground beef was kind of strange tasting and the guacamole on top was not that appetizing either. The price... More

After everything I read about these being voted the best tacos on Maui, I was very disappointed. There were simply 2 small soft tortillas, a bit of shredded cabbage, a couple of pieces of white fish and some white sauce. There was no flavor - not even cilantro!! I would never bother going back to this place.

This is not what we like to see! The most disappointing part about this is that the tacos were lacking in flavor. We're so sorry you didn't get to taste our best, and we hope to make it up to you some time. Mahalo, The Maui Tacos Team More

Was the worst dining experience that I ever had, the retried beans I watched as the worker microwaved them not right! The hard tacos used flour shells not corn. I just need to know if the owner is not repairing the equipment or the employee was to lazy to stock the hot top. It was 6 PM should have been... More

Had been at the beach and wanted to get something quick when we saw this taco place. I quickly went on trip advisor to check out the reviews and wasn't sure from the last few bad ones as my husband and son went on in. I was glad we did it was a little expensive but isn't everything in Maui!... More

Very good tacos and very fast service. The chimichanga is great. Not many taco places in Maui and this one seems to be very good.

stopped by for dinner and we were pleasantly surprised with a great meal. We all had the original fish tacos and my wife had the shrimp tacos. We all loved our meal and especially like the various salsa's that they offered. Great price for good food.

Visited Maui Tacos a couple of days ago. Upon arriving we were unsure whether to eat here due to the look from the outside, but we decided to because of the previous reviews.

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
