Late afternoon on a Thursday, the shops in Makawao were beginning to fold up (it was about 5 pm), rain was threatening. A good time for an early dinner when you see an inviting little Mexican joint at the crossroads of a tiny old Hawaiian town. Sleep- looking from outside, Polli's was teeming with happy diners, and look packed, but the smiling waitress found us a table in the side room. It was the last table. The service was great from start to finish. Drinks came quickly, our order taken, chips and salsa arrived, and before too long, our dinner. One thing about the chips (and the tortillas for the tostada), these appear to be the package sort and good as those go, but not fresh-out-of-the-fryer. No knock against Polli's , just expectation management for other folks like us from places with "authentic" Mexican restaurants (we are from California). The waitress was able to customize my tostada with sauteed ono (which is offered for the fish taco). A "super" tostada, indeed! It covered an entire dinner plate and was loaded with all the good stuff, including avocado. Delicious, fresh, beautiful. A happy thing! My husband had the Seafood Super Burrito, which has the twist of being served with a jack cheese sauce -- pooled underneath, not drenching it. The sauce was a great complement to the burrito. Nary a crumb was left -- my hungry husband ate the whole thing, and satisfied. In summary: Polli's is well-priced for Maui--and for the portion sizes and freshness of the cooking. A friendly happy vibe all around. My husband was pleased that with the TV tucked in the corner of the bar (not at all obnoxious), he could check on the progress of the UCLA v. Florida basketball game. Three cheers for Polli's! Good times!
