“Best Value Restaurant on Maui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Vacationing in Maui can be a strain on the wallet. However, we found Iron Imu was the best value restaurant that we visited and the food was awesome. 4 in our party and 4 different menu items; all were great. The service was also great and the owner very friendly.

“IRON emu BArbecue OUTSTANDING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

In Maui, at the Napili Shores resort, who expected to find smoked brisket that is outstanding. The interior cut is better than at Mile End, in New York. The concept here is to pick your main meat, from about a dozen on offer any given day, plus three sides, all good and hard to choose from.The meats are smoked, and you decide what sauces to use, including barbecue sauces.Highly recommended!

“Great little BBQ spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

This is a new spot since our last visit to Maui. It's a nice combination of counter service for ordering and a dining room where you can sit down and they bring you food to you when it's ready. The food was great, but don't wait til the end of the night to get there. They do their smoking in the morning, so some of the more popular items can run out before the end of the evening. The food was great!

“A lot of food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

It's a lot of food. Two people can comfortably share the sampler plate with one extra side. The food was very good, and they had a delicious pineapple cheesecake.
