“Cheap eat in Lahaina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

As the name suggests they have local food. The prices are pretty cheap, the quality of the food is very good and the portions are huge. The Loco Moco is large enough to share. It's a take out place with two picnic benches in a parking lot.

“Great local food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We have Lau Lau, kalua pork w/ cabbage, loco moco and adobo pork, all excellent! It is located across from Hawaiian Bank in Lahaina. Make to order, fresh and inexpensive. Best find for this trip to Maui.

“Amazing find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

It's worth the couple block walk from front street. You feel like Anthony Bourdain discovering a hidden find because this is definitely the place that most tourists DON'T go and SHOULD go. Amazing and plentiful food at a great price in a humble setting. It doesn't get better and you'll feel like a local in paradise.

“Seek this little gem out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Only two blocks from the main street in Old Lahaina, this place is easy to find and was undoubtedly our best and cheapest meal on Maui. We aren't huge eaters and the kalua pork plate was the perfect amount of food for the two of us, and I think we spent $9 for the plate and a drink. It's definitely a little "hole in the wall" with only 3 picnic tables out front. As recommended by another reviewer, make sure you sprinkle on some of the hot vinegar they have out next to the window...it was so good!
