If you're headed to the Haleakala summit, do yourself a favor and make a detour to the ranch store for one of the best burgers. Their lamb burger with the side of potato wedges was amazing!

After a long drive around the island we stopped by this little gem of a store and were pleasantly surprised by the friendly employees. It had been a long day of a lot of not so nice locals, so to be greeted by friendly mainlanders who were also hunters, it was nice. This little store is filled with cute little... More

We were across the street at Maui Wine and decided to cross the street to the Ulupalakua store. It was a nice stop - lots of nice souvenirs and gifts. (Creams, soaps, t-shirts, cowboy hats, snacks etc just to name a few). We had lunch already so we didn't eat at the grill! But the food smelled delicious! Maybe next... More

If you did the road to Hana from the west, you are almost finished. This is a must stop. Souvenirs, food, cold drinks. Definitely go across the street to MAUI Wines and stamp,e the different flavors.

One of my favorite stops while in Maui. After an educational and fun tour of the winery we headed over for lunch. The guide at the winery recommended the Elk burger, whichI had, while my wife had the Lamb.....so good!!! I would visit this place at least once a week for one of their burgers, it was that good!

When visiting Maui you always think about the beach, you never think about going to the Up-Country. Well now you should! On a day unlike any other we hit the hills and made discoveries... The one that stood out amongst all the others was the Ranch Store. Not cause it was better, it was different... All their meat is grass... More

The Ranch Store & Grill was recommended to us by a local. They serve, elk, beef, deer and lamb burgers. You order up at the counter, grab whatever else you want to eat and drink, pay at the cash register and find a seat outside to eat. The burgers are grilled on an outdoor grill. My son and I ordered... More

Following our visit to Maui Winery our family decided to walk across the street to grab a snack and cold drink. In reviewing the menu board the words "Gluten Free" caught our attention. My son and granddaughter are both gluten intolerant so our interest was peaked. We ordered three burgers, one gluten free. They actually knew how to properly prepare... More

We have been to the ranch store many times. They have great hamburgers made out of their ranch beef as well as sandwiches that you can take outside and eat at their picnic tables. They offer western items to wear and cute items to hang on the wall . A great place to stop.

We stopped for lunch after visiting Maui wine. They cook all burgers fresh on outdoor grill. You can sit inside or outside to enjoy. Great elk burger and the fries were really good along with it. Friendly staff and service.

When you come on up to visit us at Ulupalakua, you'll find it's not just about the drive. These days, it's about the food. "We're becoming a food destination," says Will Munder, Executive Chef of Ulupalakua Ranch Store & Grill. Mosey up to the counter, and you'll still find all the classic Ranch favorites, but the good stuff just got better. Now everything is made from scratch and as local as we can get it. The Ulupalakua lamb, beef and famous elk are part of our commitment to serve only meat from the Ranch or from Maui. And thanks to Upcountry's abundance. The bustling Grill gets crates of fresh local lettuce, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, pineapple, herbs and more, every morning.

Reminders of times gone by are everywhere inside the Ulupalakua Store, from the sepia-toned photos on the walls to the cowboy hats on the shelves. The Store is a happy place of simple things, good things. Our motto here at Ulupalakua Ranch is: "Happy People." Plain and simple.
