We walked a long way from Wailea to Kihei for exercise and were rewarded with great tacos, chips, salsa, and beer at this fun place. Waitress was very friendly, too.

Went there twice this week with a large group and both times when I looked at the bill, multiple individuals were over charged. They also upcharged people's drinks to the larger and more expensive sizes without asking us or specifying. When we went back on taco Tuesday, they also charged us the regular drink prices instead of the advertised prices.... More

Fred's Mexican Cafe is a great place to eat. Portion sizes are big enough to share. You receive nacho chips and salsa as an appetizer but if you order the guacamole and/or cheese sauce to go with then you pay extra. The quesadillas are very good as are the burritos. Service is good but not exceptional. A good family restaurant... More

Wouldn't recommend going unless you don't care about wasting money and getting mediocre food. Nothing special at all, can probably make better at home.

I wish I would have ordered 3 fish tacos instead of the variety! They were that good. The service was a bit slow, but they were very busy (always)

Not a fan of this place. The happy hour margeritas were decent but the cheese enchiladas were not good. Go elsewhere.

Enjoyed the Fajitas and a couple of Mango margaritas that were delicious. Staff friendly. It is a enjoyable spot in a good location

Fred's Mexican Cafe provides good Mexican fare at reasonable prices. Located downstairs from Moose McGillycuddy's bar, the food was ample, and tasted fine! Not the best Mexican food I've had, but not bad, and worth a trip here if you are tired of the "normal Hawaiian cuisine" while on vacation.

Great view of the ocean, lively music, attentive staff and delicious food! Our server, Michael checked on us often and the hostess staff were very sweet. Definitely go on Taco Tuesdays... so many great options! Would definitely go back.

Thank Chase C
