Description: Established in 2008. Taqueria Cruz is a fourth & fifth generation family-owned and operated business which was first established by our great-grandparents in the beautiful Wine Country of the Napa Valley. Our family got into the restaurant business in 1951, building a warm and successful eatery from the ground up, and we are willing to bet that they never imagined all of their hard work and love for cooking would one day reach beyond the vineyards and blossom on the beautiful island of Maui. We are very proud of our family history as well as our culture, and we know you will taste the love in our food. So please come and let us share with you what they have shared with us. From our family to yours, the love and aloha of Taqueria Cruz.

“Best Street Tacos on Maui”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

On our search for the best tacos on Maui, we came across Taqueria Cruz because our wives were getting a massage and we were wasting time. While they were getting rubbed down, my friend and I sat down for a couple of street tacos, I had fish and pork, great is the only word to describe them. We liked them so much that after the wives were done with the massage, we walked over to Cruz to have some tacos, the wives didn't know we were already there. I was so full but so satisfied. Don't miss it for street tacos.

“Great Mexican Food”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

Great mexican food, worth looking for. Great tasting, great prices. Gluten Free options available.
It is just a small take out place with outdoor covered seating. BYOB. We grabbed some food and brought a couple of beers. Wonderful. You could also order and take it to the beach. Try this local restaurant. You can always eat at the big chain restaurants when you get back home. We highly recommend it.

“Veggie Burrito!!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

This was awesome. This place is a tiny hole in the wall Taqueria. There is tables outside and a small counter with the menu. I ordered the veggie burrito with sour cream. I have to say this was one of the best burritos I've had on Maui. Now I haven't had authentic Mexican food before so I cant say if is was great Mexican food but it was a awesome burrito. $10.00 was the cost and you could totally split this with someone. it was a big burrito.

“Kihei hidden jewel if you like Mexican Food on Maui”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

i was asked to do a review on any restaurant on Maui i think is a hidden jewel, well this is it "Taqueria Cruz" Mexican restaurant in Kihei's Dolphin Plaza. They prepare fresh whole Pinto & Black Beans, they don't serve refried beans, cause it means old beans that have to be mashed up like mashed potatoes 8)...the food is fresh and truly the best Maui Mexican food on island. It is BYOB so bring your favorite beverage but they do have live music towards sunset and Taco Tuesdays with great Taco Deals! you gotta try them out if you're in the Kihei or Wailea area and then you write a review, you won't be dissappointed :) ....Maui no ka oi!

“Great Mexican fare”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

Went here twice during our four-day stay in Kihei. Burritos are great, especially for vegetarians. Full of very tasty and creative fillings (poblano pepper mix is top notch), you will be happy and satisfied after every meal. You can also "build your own" burrito, with many options to choose from--all equally delicious. Try this place--you won't be sorry.
