- The Local Expert Team

If you’re ready to fuel up between all your island adventures, you cannot go wrong with a trip over to Maui Tacos. Set right off Honoapiilani Highway, this Napili eatery creates fresh, flavorful tacos on demand plus a whole lot more. Although fast service is their specialty, they expertly create all the Mexican favorites on demand, including Huevos a La Mexicana, Taquitos, and Carne Asada. Then, they serve it all up with tropical drinks from their tiki bar, like their Maui Tacos Original Margarita.

While you might want to try it all, it’s often difficult to deviate from their signature Maui tacos. Every taco starts with a double stack of corn tortillas to hold everything together. To that, they add your protein of choice, like their ultra-fresh fish, and then pile on all the fixings you could ever want. Their tacos come with a pile of warm chips on the side, plus free access to their World Famous Salsa Bar.

Serving as the perfect complement to their salsa bar is their tiki bar featuring tons of top-notch alcoholic drinks. Although their margaritas are definitely the star of the show, they also have Mai Tais, Daiquiris, Pina Coladas, and their incredibly rich Chipotle Bloody Mary. If you prefer something a little simpler, you can go with their imported or local brews instead. Or go in the other direction with their ever-popular Michelada using your beer of choice.

Want to keep alcohol out of the equation? Their Keiki Fruit Daiquiri never fails to delight. If that’s not quite your speed, the Aguas Frescas might be right up your alley. This drink gets made fresh daily with all new Hawaiian flavors on the regular. So, be sure to ask about their flavor of the day whenever you come in to avoid missing out.

Don’t miss out on the:

With a salsa bar right on site, the Nachos are always a sure bet. They create this huge plate of deliciousness by piling beans, cheese, meat, and tomatoes on fresh tortilla chips. Then, all that goes in the oven until melty before getting sour cream and guacamole over the top. Want it without meat? That’s fine, too. Just let them know to leave it out.

Huevos Rancheros
Want to start your day off with bold flavor in every bite? Just get the Huevos Rancheros. This fan-favorite begins with scrambled eggs elevated with onions, jalapenos, and tomatoes. Once it’s piping hot, they put it on the plate with rice and beans.  

Baja Grilled Fish Taco
If you’d like to see what all the fuss is about, treat yourself to the Baja Grilled Fish Taco. They create this dish by grilling marinated fish until perfectly flakey. After that, they stack two corn tortillas and place the fish along the center. Shredded cabbage goes over the top of the fish, followed by their tasty cilantro jalapeno sauce.

Although you might be tempted to fill up on tacos and more, their desserts are well worth cutting your meal short. So, put the extras in a doggie bag, and then set your sights on their sweet treats. Although the Fried Ice Cream and Churros are plenty good, it’s the Banana Chingalinga you need in your life. To create this dessert, they wrap a honey-drizzled banana in a tortilla, and then deep fry it. After that, a roll in cinnamon sugar elevates the rich sweetness even more.
