Maui Tacos, Maui Hawaii - Best pulled pork tacos on the island

Rating Food 8/10
Its warm, its balmy and it was a wonderful morning out in sunny Maui. Hankering for a laid back and tasty meal, we headed to Maui Tacos in Kihei for some Island style tacos. This open air, cafeteria style taco joint has a self serve salsa and taco toppings bar just off to the side where you can load up your tacos and chips with whatever your heart desires.. or whatever heat your taste buds can handle!


Choices, so many choices...

After placing our orders, we sat back in the patio and enjoyed the breeze while waiting for our food order to come out

We ordered a Baja Grilled Fish Taco, which has little bits of marinated moist grilled white fish (other than the larger piece pictured) served with your choice of pinto, black or refried beans, shredded cabbage and cilantro +/- Jalapeño dressing. We went with the refried beans as were told it tasted the best with. A little short on the amoutn of fist, with a few random bits here and there, but still tasty! Mmmmmm!

We also got an order of "The Original" taco, which comes in variations made with charbroiled chicken, shredded beef, BBQ pork or ground beef and again your choice of pinto, black or refried beans with mixed greens ad a sprinkle of cheese. We were glad we got the pork as it was moist, flavorful slow cooked Hawaiian pulled pork yumminess!

And you can top your chips and/or tacos with a variety of salsas...

Loved the spicy corn salsa...

and more toppings!

I think we had the corn salsa, insanely hot marinated sweet Maui onions, and 2 of the salsas to go with our chips.. Mmmmm!

the VERDICT
Overall, love the variety of salsas and fresh/marinated toppings that you can try or load up your taco with...the best pork tacos on the island!  Next time, I'm going to try the Hana burrito - a massive burritto packed full of that yummy slow cooked Hawaiian pulled pork. Mmmm!
