The best tacos and customer service of on Maui. An added bonus, for me, are the gluten free options! Family friendly and reasonably priced. The line was long when we arrived but moved quickly. The tacos are filled with flavor and fresh ingredients.

I ate here because it was rated #1 on Yelp. It did not disappoint we had the fish tacos and the Ahi Poke that was wonderful too. This is fast food and they have plenty of seating inside and out. It does get pretty crowded but that is just because it is so good. .

Came here because of the great reviews and had a great meal. The place is small, limited seating with some outdoor picnic tables available. Expect to share your table.
