“Excellent Mexican Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Excellent and authentic mexican food. Portion size is large and includes cilantro spiced rice and black beans. The shrimp enchiladas are the best. Nice ocean view from across the street. Open air seating in front and side. Pub or bar environment.

“Love the beachy/Mexican atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

My kids and husband and I all loved this place. Very casual, with a real "local hangout" feel. The food and service was great. My kids even got up and danced! I would go back to this place, even if only for the atmosphere.

“Decent Mexican Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

This place was recommended and it was good and reasonably priced. My waiter was great! I don't know if it is the best Mexican food in Kihei, but I would go back again.

“Taco Tuesday at Fred's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Great calamari tacos for Taco Tuesday. Nice size portions on plates, but a little skimpy on the chips and salsa. Perfect location with ocean views.
