Stopped in for a quick bite. Not such a good idea. Shared the (essentially flavorless) vegetarian taco salad. Expected a lot more, but seriously this is a joint in a shopping mall. What were we thinking. Didn't finish it. I cannot think of a single...More

Been going there for years. My most recent visit and the Lahaina Burrito was not up to typical standards. Extremely light on the guacamole and hardly any chicken. Pretty dissatisfied for the $10. Will think twice before going back to this location.

I live on the other side of the island but whenever I come to Hilo I try to eat here. It is located in the Prince Kuhio Mall near Sears. The food is excellent.

We took a trip to Hilo while staying in Kona and stopped in for lunch at Maui Tacos. We did order chicken tacos and ended up with fish tacos but they were very good nevertheless. I would go back again and hopefully they will get...More
