Location and contact

If you're craving fresh Mexican food with one-of-a-kind flavors, there's no need to hop a plane across the Pacific. Just visit Maui Tacos! We're Hawaii's favorite place to grab a bite and step into a colorful fiesta. Every made-to-order dish combines the best of Mexican and Hawaiian flavors for a meal that'll make your taste buds say "mahalo." Join us and see for yourself what we're all about. There's a reason we call the Maui Taco experience "a vacation you can eat."

I had a delicious taco salad and my husband got fish tacos. This was one of several places on Kauai and in Maui that he ordered fish tacos. He said these were the best of all of them.
