Food was ok. Cheap by Maui standards, $10 for a burrito, $3 for chips. Not a true sit down area. Good for take out back to beach or hotel.

Good, fresh, fast, authentic Mexican food. Would recommend it!! Location is correct on Google maps, it's hidden in the Pizza Hut plaza.

We've been there thanks to Tripadvisor on a busy weekday Night. Food was good, Service Too - but we've waited for over 35 minutes for food. I've you got time, you'll enjoy the Food!

We make sure and set aside at least one evening every trip to visit Taqueria Cruz. The food is very good, and you can't beat "Taco Tuesday". We enjoy the enchiladas, rice & beans especially. But, we have not had anything that we were disappointed in. The bonus is the relaxing live music while you enjoy a few adult beverages... More

I ordered a fish taco and the queso and chips. The fish taco was good, but not excellent. The dip was good as well, but I couldn't taste any cheese in it, which is what I was expecting it to be. My friend had a burrito and said it was very good (she ate all of it). The chips were... More

This was our second visit here and our family was here last trip when a local recommended it. It's been on our "must do" since then for when we returned. It didn't disappoint. Our young kids really enjoyed it as well, and it was really fairly cost effective. The chairs and tables could really do with an upgrade. I would... More

Established in 2008.

Taqueria Cruz is a fourth & fifth generation family-owned and operated business which was first established by our great-grandparents in the beautiful Wine Country of the Napa Valley. Our family got into the restaurant business in 1951, building a warm and successful eatery from the ground up, and we are willing to bet that they never imagined all of their hard work and love for cooking would one day reach beyond the vineyards and blossom on the beautiful island of Maui. We are very proud of our family history as well as our culture, and we know you will taste the love in our food. So please come and let us share with you what they have shared with us. From our family to yours, the love and aloha of Taqueria Cruz.
