“Awesome food, huge portions!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

The food here is great, you can go for a full meal, or as we did a couple times just for nacho's and a drink. The Strawberry Margaritas are great, and the nacho's are a meal for 2, and you can order extra meat toppings.
Our daughter had the taco's that come loaded,more that enough for her.
As well you have a great atmosphere, outdoor views of the ocean at Kamaole beach 3, and if you go around sunset you can watch it go down it you have to wait to be seated-beautiful!

“Really enjoyed both breakfast in dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Fred's serves the BOGO breakfast advertised for Moose McGillicuddy's and both my wife and I loved our meals. The best fried rice I have ever been served. And we had dinner there a few days later and both really enjoyed our food. I had three different kinds of tacos and all wonderful and she had a chicken taco and enchilada. Said they were fantastic.

“Really good breakfast and dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We had breakfast here two times and dinner once. For breakfast I had their skillet breakfast and a banana muffin. Both excellent. For dinner I had a burrito and it too was very good. The service was fast and efficient. We were fortunate enough to be able to walk here from our condo, so very convenient.

“Awesome Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

My husband and I were staying in Kihei for 5 days and weren't interested in spending a fortune on eating out. However, we did want good food. Well we were pleasantly surprised with Fred's. Very reasonable prices, large portions, and best of all, yummy food. We kept going back because the food was excellent and good value. Fish tacos are to die for. And if you can manage to snag a table overlooking the ocean, you can watch the sunset while you're having dinner. Highly recommend Fred's if you're a fan of Mexican food.

“Tres Amigos!!! You can't go wrong at Fred's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Fred's is a must stop in Maui for Mexican food. The atmosphere is great, tons of outdoor seating and also - SUPER food!! I have had quite a few kinds of tacos, burritos and other options. All have been great! They also have killer margaritas as well as a pretty good list of tequila. Taco Tuesday is a great deal - BUT - be prepared for a LONG wait. Good news is that you can cruise upstairs to Moose Mcgillycuddys for a cold brew.
Make sure to razzz the guys about the soccer jerseys and take your picture out front with the goofy sign!!
