Good food, good service, good price

My husband and I went here on a whim, and it was great. We had the veggie burritos and aside from being HUGE, they were really good - they actually had vegetables in them! It's a nice place to just sit and chill out and eat a comfortable meal. We'd go back, for sure.

Food not as good as it use to be. Watered down salsa that is no longer complimentary. Cramped seating.

Had a great lunch here last time I was on Maui. Good margaritas and great service! We both had tacos and they were delicious. Good variety of locals and tourists made for a great vibe!

We are from Texas so our Mexican food standard might be different. Not alot flavor on the chimichuna and the sauce is Pico not salsa. Staff was good along with a good atmosphere.

Small and cozy. Good food at very reasonable prices. Our server was friendly and quick. The was a 'surprise' find on our way down from the Volcano.

OK ... let me saw this about that ... I can NEVER look at another Buritto Supreme the same. Went here for lunch, and I got the beef Buritto Supreme. Made with shreaded beef not ground beef. So between the size and the flavors I cannot ever eat another buritto that can compare.

This Nacho plate fills its Makawowie billing. The lively atmosphere and friendly service helps too. The somewhat spicy unique salsa sealed the deal mixing with the chips and other toppings. We ordered nothing else except beers and enjoyed the treat.

The food was OK and the service was good. I expected a little more spiciness and Mexican flavor but not from Polli's. The restaurant was nice but there was no separation of the bar (noisy) from the eating area. Parking was easy.

My Tostada Grande was good and my partner was very happy with his Huevos Rancheros. We stopped here on our way from Hana to the airport and we're delighted with both the food, ambience, and friendly service. This is a very casual spot catering to both locals and tourists.
