“What's happening here?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

When you eat here you never know who is behind the counter, that is because this is a training restaurant for the world. On my first visit I encountered Russians, on the next, Koreans, then Japanese, then French and Chinese. It makes for an interesting ordering experience. I always order by holding up fingers to show the number of the meal I want and then the amount of items I want. I speak slowly and always check my purchases for errors, always! If you want to see panic, pay with a 50 cent coin.
Why the yelling? Some languages use volume to indicate the meaning of a word. What to our ears is yelling is just adding an er to the word as in fast to faster. There is no hostility in the tone, but it does make me jump. Most of the workers don’t understand English so if you have a problem talk to the manager.
The food is McDonalds, but this is Maui so they are often out of something or another until the boat comes in. Land is expensive here so parking stalls are tight. The drive thorough backs up to block the parking lot so it can be hard to get out once parked. On the upside if you listen you will hear Hawaiian and Pidgin being spoke by other customers.

“Yuck”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Not only do I already not care for mcdonalds but this one was really dirty inside and we waited a long time for our meals. There are lots of other options besides this place in the area so avoid eating here if at all possible!

“A good McDonald's”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We don't do McDonald's often but we found the McDonald's in Kihei to be a good place for lunch. They have good fish sandwiches. The place is kept clean and we had good service.

“Good coffee as usual.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Good old McDonald's. It's always the same no matter where you go. We visited a few and got good quick service. The prices are excellent for Hawaii.

“Prices are not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

With being in Hawaii you'd expect the prices to be way more expensive.... and they weren't. They had the $1.00 any size drink special going on.
