“Local Dive DeliversTaste Extrodinare”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

We stumbled upon this place while walking through town after miles of enjoying the local beaches. It looked like a nice place to grab a light meal and had a good fan base of customers. Turns out it has a great Zagat review and received local attention for the best tacos on the island for the past few years. Yum, we ordered a round of the fresh fish cakes with cold slaw and passed on the fresh fries. The flavors were fantastic....and the next day while we were planning our high end foody dinner, my travel companion was still looking for a way to have the tacos for dinner again! Will definitely come back and hoping for a smart franchiser to pick up on this for our area!

“Great Fish Tacos”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

These were really great tacos. Its a "takeout" kind of place. You line up to place your order, then grab a table or eat outside. Lots of options - and they also offered Gluten Free - the chicken on corn tortillas. Be forwarded - you will GET MESSY! There is no classy way to eat these. Staff was super nice as well!

“Lived up to reviews”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Ate dinner here our first night in Maui. We ordered fish and chips and an order of fish tacos. Both were very good but we REALLY liked the fish tacos. First, they were made with a toasted tortilla then fresh fried fish, slaw, salsa--delicious! Planned to go back but ran out of time.

“Great lunch spot ”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

This is a great restaurant for lunch. We ordered the fish tacos and salmon burger/sandwich. Between the two of us, it was a lot of food!!! We also walked to the liquor store to pick up some beer because it is BYOB!!!

“Best fish tacos in the world”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Seriously, no joke. A great family owned place with amazingly unique fish tacos. My 6 and 9 year old call them heaven. We get off the plane and head straight there for our first meal on the island. If you miss this place you'll really miss something special.
