Fred's was a nice surprise--Mexican Food, ample portions and specials every day!

We had a shrimp quesadilla, and three tacos--it was Taco Tuesday and the prices on a la carte taco's was super reasonable ($2.95 and $3.95, depending). PLUS, free chips and salsa!

We waited about 1/2 hour and were seated just before sunset. Fred's is across the street from the Ocean but there are no buildings blocking the view. Seated across the street were lots of folks taking photos of the setting sun--which we could, too.

Restrooms are upstairs--in the Moose McGillicudy Restaurant--separate stairway to get there.

Just wasn't very good mexican food, but for Hawaii there isn't much in competition and the location is good for views. The drinks weren't bad, but bartenders acted busy when they really weren't.

This Mexican restaurant is not good. In fact, of all the places we ate in 8 days on Maui, this was by far the worst. Our waitress was spread way too thin. The margaritas were awful. The guacamole tasted like something squeezed out of a Baggie. My companion did like the chicken burrito. My enchiladas were gross. Do not recommend

We went to this restaurant in hopes we would have an enjoyable and memorable dining experience for our last night in Kihei but we ended up having a horrible experience due to the horrendous service. Our server avoided our table like we were the plague. We were not offered nachos or salsa and from the time we ordered drinks we were only checked on once which was when the food was delivered and the food wasn't even delivered by our original server. When the food was delivered we were told that our original server would check on us in a moment so we could get fresh drinks. We didn't hear from anyone else until we were done our meal and WAIVED OUR SERVER OVER to tell her we were done and wanted our check. On the way out we expressed our displeasure to the manager who apologized but didn't offer any discount or complementary item...maybe because we had already paid. It seemed to us this establishment is not interested in customer service because they are fully aware that many of their customers are tourists who are here today and gone tomorrow. Food was satisfactory but one of the dishes we ordered was quite salty. It's a shame that this was the restaurant we selected for our final night because during our 8 night stay we visited SO many other restaurants that were A+.
