“cheap and fresh tasting”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

the guacamole, salsa and food tasted fresh for fast food..maybe it was the cilantro that did it..? The kids were happy with the place, not bad I guess.

“Thank you for coming back!”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

Thanks for coming back!Why did you close?hope history does not repeat itself!What happened to the automatic doors?atmosphere was a low score because we were the only customers there!I just wanted a soda but ordered a shrimp plate cause The two young men working needed customers they were working hard when we came in and were very professional. Not slacking off like lots of workers do when they dont have anything better to do! Thanks for the courtesy and the great dinner! The atmosphere looks like it would be happening place with the surf decor and the party vibe to it and those workers could teach the surfshop across from them a thing or two about what customer service is all about! Is there an Edward working there cause I think that was my helper's name? Sorry but I forgot the other boys name but mahalo for a great experience and when my son grows up and gets a job that he will be a good employee like them. Gracias!

“Give um a try you won't be sorry...”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

Taco Del Mar is located in the Maui Mall...right on the big curve as Hana Highway turns into Ka'ahumanu Ave...think Whole Foods, as they are 'upfront at the Maui Mall'...easy to find this place...as you head down the center/main entrance going towards the Mega-mall Cinema it's on the right...

Mark, the most friendly and accommodating owner/manager was there when we went to grab a quick, and as it turned out to be, ono (local speak for Good!), and a great value lunch...

they have daily specials and today was...ta da...

Two fer Tacos......

2 tacos with rice, beans, AND small drink...how much? 7.99...a truly real deal...I asked if could get one soft and one hard, or as they say, crunchy taco, and it was sure no problem...

got a veggie soft and a 'braised chicken' crunchy with pinto beans (the bean state before they become refrieds) and the ubiquitous rice, they make these all to order right in front of you...think Mexican Subway (sorry for that comparison but it should conjure up what we're talking about here)...they put the salsa on the tacos for you...they have a selection from mild to hot/jalapeno which loving hot hot hot I asked for...

my brother, the consummate vegetarian, got a veggie burrito...unlike me he didn't ask for it 'wet' (add 1.50 I think it was)...he's a 'value hound' and was most satisfied with what he got for his Mondo burrito at $7.29,they have a 'mondito' at a buck cheaper...

there was a steady flow of people throughout the approx 30 min. that we were there...and I'd say half of them were regular customers...

Nothing on the menu is fried, and they offer whole grain and vegan options.

all in all I'd give Taco Del Mar/Maui Mall 4 out of 5 stars...you can see exactly what it is you're getting..they are VERY generous with the fixings, the price is certainly right (put it this way, on Maui, no matter where you go, food court or sit down, lunch is gonna be 10-12+++usd and these guys got that beat by 2-5 bucks, so please DO drop something in the tip jar, and I"m not talking about the coin change you get back)..

they are open for dinner as well so if you're going to catch a movie at the megaplex they have recently started table service from 5 to closing...

some of the other daily specials:

if you're Ka'maaina you get double punch on Mondays

Friday...Two fish tacos...for...can you believe it...5usd...yes you read that right...

got family/kids? free kids meal on Sundays (one kids meal free for each adult entree (not ala carte) purchase...

how can you go wrong...

try them out...there's plenty Mex on Maui and these friendly folks certainly deserve at least one visit...

aloha...and enjoy!

“Loved the burrito!”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

We stopped in for lunch today while on our vacation. We loved the Subway-like way you could build your own burrito and tacos. Very large portions so you get your money's worth and I personally lived the flavors in the burrito.

“Burritos are back on Maui!”
Reviewed May 29, 2011

We were so disappointed when Taco Del Mar closed because it was the only place on Maui with real burritos. And we were thrilled to see they're back while walking through Maui Mall. A new owner, but the same great reasonably priced food!

Good luck, Mark! We'll be back!
