But you Maui Time reader, you have held a long time romance with Maui Taco’s burrito, voting it to the top of the Maui Burrito charts since 2003. What’s not to love? You get a ginormous burrito, you can choose from any of their healthy grilled meats, beans and rice, and fresh veggies. Other options are spinach tortillas and homemade sauce. Its all so good and vegetarian friendly. Plus it comes with chips, as if you could even fit any more in your belly. Even better, you will find locations all around the island so no matter where you are, Maui Tacos is nearby.

BEST BURRITO, Winner Maui Tacos Address: 2411 S. Kihei Rd., Kihei, HI 96753 Phone: 808-879-5005 Fax: 808-662-0717 Website: http://www.mauitacos.com When you want a burrito, you think Maui Tacos. Is it the fact that they have just about every kind of filling you could want: shredded beef, grilled chicken, grilled steak, BBQ pork, grilled fish? Or is it the options: smothered in sauce and cheese, take it to go, chips on the side? Or it could be the names: the Lahaina, Hana, Hookipa, Napili. (My favorite is the Paia, a vegetarian delight to which I add their fantastic grilled chicken.) In the end, whatever the reason, one thing’s for sure: they always make it fresh, quick and ono at Maui Tacos.
BEST FISH TACOS, Winner Maui Tacos Address: 2411 S. Kihei Rd., Kihei, HI 96753 Phone: 808-879-5005 Fax: 808-662-0717 Website: http://www.mauitacos.com MauiTime readers love Maui Tacos’ fresh approach to the fish taco. Chef Pepe’s signature cilantro jalepeno sauce seals the deal. Shells and chips are fried in 100 percent cholesterol-free vegetable oil, but they offer soft taco shells, too. I like to add their housemade guacamole and salsa to everything. Add their beans, made with no lard, and it’s no wonder these babies are considered the best.
We thought we had it good with fresh tortillas in any flavor stuffed with Maui Tacos’ savory grilled and seasoned chicken, fish, pork or beef. But then Maui Tacos upped their game with new ethnic burritos, monthly specials, wraps and breakfast burritos. No wonder readers voted them the best. Who can keep up?
