Love this truck, it's my favorite place to get lunch in Kihei! My boyfriend loves the spicy garlic butter shrimp, I can't get passed how tender and delicious the calamari is with spicy sauce! I'll go here over a restaurant any day.

We sought out the Kinaole Food Truck because we heard it was a must do experience. The four of us chose different plates; they all were excellent. Thank you for giving us the lead on finding the best fish dinner on the island!

Great location. We took our food to the nearby park and had a wonderful meal. The coconut strip and calamari were so good.
