“Great lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

After a long day at the beach we stopped here for a late lunch...the service was friendly and prompt. We ordered vegan nachos which were HUGE. I had a fish enchilada which I really enjoyed. The really test of Mexican food is the next day and my digestive system was just fine lol

“Best Mexican Food on Maui”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

We've tried several mexican restaurants on Maui and feel the food is adequate, but not great. We had a late lunch at Polli's yesterday and were pleasantly surprised. We arrived around 2:30 and there were a lot of people waiting for a table. First sign this is a good restaurant. We waited about 15 minutes for a table. Our server was very friendly and attentive.
The food was so delicious. I had a chicken burrito that was very large and very tasty. My husband had the taco and enchilada combo and said it too was very good. The margaritas were also good.
We'll go back next time we want some good mexican food.

“Really good mexican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

I noticed this restaurant when driving to the Haleakala Crater. The slogan "Come in and eat or we'll both starve" convinced me! The food was good and the plates were really big! You should try this place!

“Had to go...just for the infamous " Lilli-koi Margarita"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Another "must do" on your way through Makawao. Stop at this well frequented little restaurant and have one of their "famous" local flavours... in a Margarita!! Lilli- Koi is a local fruit, to die for !!!! My BF from Kihei , insisted that we stop. We each had one, and added it to our list, of favorite things we tried- only found in Hawaii!
