“Ay Ay Ay (recommend this place)!!!”
Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

We stumbled upon this place after our hike to the volcano crater heading back to Lahaina. We arrived during happy hour (ended at 5:30pm) and had a couple of margaritas ($4 each), wings, and an assortment of tacos ($2.50 a piece). The waitress even charged our phones while we ate which was super nice! Loved the vibe... Very relaxed and chill!

“Consistant customer since I was born”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

I will forever order a "make my own buritto" even at age 20. Some of the servers are still the same. Reasonable prices for an excellent lunch or dinner. If you love mexican food you will love Polli's

“Neat Spot”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

We stopped here on the way back from Haleakala for dinner. Very friendly staff, large portions and home made chips and salsa. There was a lot neat artwork and surf posters. It's also in a pretty cool town so at the very least you should stop in for a margarita if you are sightseeing.

“Get a Taste of Upcountry Maui”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Lunch and Dinner. Mexican cuisine. Upcountry in Makawao, Maui’s famous “Paniolo (cowboy) Town”, great Mexican food and BBQ. Fun (but small) bar filled with locals and some great stories from their day upcountry. They also play cool sports videos. View of charming streets of Makawao. No reservations needed.

“Best taco salad”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

This was the best chicken taco salad I have ever had and I eat alot of them. All ingredients were fresh and plentiful and not weighed down with a glob of sour cream. Hubby had the empanadas and they were tasty too. Don't fill up on the very tasty chips and salsa because the portions are big and you won't leave hungry. Service was very pleasant and not over done and the price is super for the quality and quantity.
