Friendly staff, DELICIOUS food! We enjoyed nachos on the shaded tables with freshly fried chips and finger-lickin' toppings after a long morning at the beach. Will visit again for more awesome food!

The vegetarian tacos make this place my got-to-eat place each trip. The guy who runs it really seems to care if I get what I want too. Very casual

The nachos are good and that’s the only way you’re going to get sour cream and guacamole without losing your shirt. I went to taco Tuesday for $2 tacos but that only applies to a few options, none of which were vegetarian. It’s too bad...More

Guacamole costs a lot more than sour cream...I'm guessing cost and creative license are the reason.

Established in 2008. Taqueria Cruz is a fourth & fifth generation family-owned and operated business which was first established by our great-grandparents in the beautiful Wine Country of the Napa Valley. Our family got into the restaurant business in 1951, building a warm and successful eatery from the ground up, and we are willing to bet that they never imagined all of their hard work and love for cooking would one day reach beyond the vineyards and blossom on the beautiful island of Maui. We are very proud of our family history as well as our culture, and we know you will taste the love in our food. So please come and let us share with you what they have shared with us. From our family to yours, the love and aloha of Taqueria Cruz.
