This place was really good!! We ate with a family of 9 and everyone loved their food. The people who worked here were also very nice. I would definitely eat here again.

The fish tacos were ok but nothing that stands out. Everything else was a waste. We got three different tacos to try a variety. Wish we would have tried the taco truck we saw down the road.

They are bit hard to find a few blocks off Front St in a older type shopping center. I just had 1 fish taco and it was good although I thought a bit smaller that I would have liked.. Wife had a burrito and enchilada and said they were fine. Service was fast and only a few tables out in... More

Simon, thanks for stopping in during your trip! It's a bummer that your taco wasn't perfect-- we do tend to go for quality over quantity and we never want you to leave still feeling hungry. Would love to see you again while you're on vacation and make it perfect! Mahalo, The Maui Tacos Team More

What a shame, it was just waste of my calories. Shouldn't go there at all. The fish taco was bland, small portion. The pork quesadilla wasn't nice neither. The chips was awful and it wasn't that cheap. We came from England and we have excellent Mexican restaurants there.

Wei, what a disappointment. A total wipe out. We are world famous for our Fish Tacos including our portions so this really hurts. As Hawaii's most famous Mexican restaurant with Mauitude we should be delivering great taste with every bite. I apologize that we missed the mark on your order. Mahalo, Jeff CEO Maui Tacos More

We should have checked reviews but we're so hungry (just arrived to Maui) we just came to eat here 😣. Food was just gross. DEFINITELY will never eat here again. My husband got a pork burrito and literally had just a big blob of rice and beans, hardly any meat and was not even tasty. My daughter got the enchiladas... More

Wow, Areli. We never wish to hear about an experience like this at one of our restaurants. The food you're describing is not what we're known for, and we hate that's the impression of us you were left with. Burritos and enchiladas are two of our main dishes, and we always want to make sure they're tasty. We're sorry you... More

We went here after reading reviews that it's comparable to Taco Bell, I honestly think I'd prefer Taco Bell over this place which isn't saying much. Chicken in my quesadilla was fatty and had bones in it. The burrito my husband ordered was so dry and looked awful. The chips were stale. Overall waste of money and time.

Jeff E, Owner at Maui Tacos Lahaina, responded to this review

Jillian, this is quite a disappointment. Chicken shouldn't be fatty or come with bones, so that's something we'll definitely look into. It sounds like we dropped the ball on your husband's burrito as well. This isn't the norm for us, and we apologize that this is the experience we showed you. Mahalo, The Maui Tacos Team More

Family recommended this place for good food at reasonable prices. We had a hard time finding it at first but once we did, visited many times during our vacation.

Pretty low quality Mexican food - with stale chips. You can do much better in Maui - and would pass on this one. Should have walked out and not ordered, but didn't.

This is such a letdown! You're right, there are a lot of good places to eat in Maui, but it's always our hope that we stand out as a great, casual spot. Stale chips aren't what you should expect from us, and we're sorry we let you down. Mahalo, The Maui Tacos Team More

By far the worst food we had on Maui! Tasteless and greasy. Chips were stale, overpriced everything! Yuk, Yuk, Yuk! Go to Lahina Luna if you are in Lahina and want a good taco stand or better yet-Cool Cats Cafe

Don't get me wrong we were all happy with the offering even though the Best Fish Taco in Maui was in the breeze way of a back block shopping centre on outdoor furniture. To be fair I don't have enough experience with Fish Tacos to seriously rate it as The Best but we were happy and not too disappointed with... More
