This restaurant bought an excellent one, raised the prices, changed the menu but kept the original 5 star reviews on the door. The food tastes ok but the prices are high even at Maui standards. I think it’s misleading leaving the ratings up from another...More

Stopped at the truck after hanging out in the lava fields. Nice service, quick eats, terrific fish tacos. I want to go back!!!! I’m not a food truck connoisseur, but this place has me thinking I should be.

Don't miss this truck on your way to Big Beach. Amber has a PHD and works for NOAA, but she says this gig pays the bills.

Gave the food truck 3 stars because the shaved ice with vanilla ice cream was pretty good. Fish tacos were not up to par-lacked flavor. Burrito was alright-nothing to rave about. One of their trucks takes cash only FYI

Do not eat here!!!! The food truck is a trap to suck you in thinking you need food for the beach. The fish tacos I ordered were terrible. I actually returned them for a refund. Should have stuck to what my “Maui Revealed” book said...More
