“Well worth a Bite”
Reviewed 29 March 2013

This is a wonderful place to stop for a meal. Located in a small shopping center, we drove around twice looking for the restaurant. This is a little stand tucked into the corner of the mall, with a covered picnic bench to dine. Skeptical at first, we took a closer look. There is not much of a menu - your choice of chicken, pork, fish or just beans in a flour or corn soft shell. But what was delivered for $6 (we got fish tacos) was a wonderful meal. There was plenty of fish, in addition to beans, cheese and freshly grated lettuce. One taco is large enough for most people with a big appetite - in fact too big to eat rolled up. For $26 we had two fish tacos, a been/cheese taco, a kiddy meal and four sodas; the best value by far we have found on the island. These service was friendly and fun. We got to talk to a few locals that ate there too. The atmosphere is a parking lot, but looking past that, the real atmosphere are the people and the food. 5 stars for a wonderful, tasty, inexpensive meal. A very nice experience and an excellent meal.

“BEST FISH TACO ON MAUI”
Reviewed 11 March 2013

We discovered this place two years ago, and just returned this year, eating at Island Taco a number of times in the six weeks we were there. Owner Ron and his staff do an outstanding job of offering one of the real food value on the island, not to mention delicious. Simple menu of tacos only, either Fish, Chicken or pork. All common priced at $5 each. And one is a meal.

“Superb fast lunch”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

Well, on Maui we wanted to maximize our snorkelling, swimming, and volcano exploring time. And our outdoor time. This taco stand fit right in with our plans. Outdoor seating, fantasticly fresh and quickly prepared tacos, friendly service, and back to having vacation fun for us. We had the chicken tacos and the pork tacos. The chicken was slow-cooked with a terrific seasoning mix, and so good that my disappointment that my first choice (fish taco) had just sold out was totally erased with the first bite. And I don't blame them for selling out of fish tacos, as we did not stop by for lunch till 3 PM. Highly recommend for a laid-back lunch on the go.
