Wow! Those were the best burritos we have ever had! Chocked full of your choice of meat or fish, or even a veggie version, as well as beans and rice and tastiness. Then you can add guacamole and sour cream, and then you can choose red ranchero sauce, chile verde sauce, or half-and-half. Add some home-made chips and great salsa,... More

Taqueria Cruz is tucked away in the corner of a plaza across the street from Kamaole I beach. We read in a Maui guidebook that the blackened fish tacos there are good so we ate dinner there once during our Maui stay.

Food was ok. Cheap by Maui standards, $10 for a burrito, $3 for chips. Not a true sit down area. Good for take out back to beach or hotel.

We've been there thanks to Tripadvisor on a busy weekday Night. Food was good, Service Too - but we've waited for over 35 minutes for food. I've you got time, you'll enjoy the Food!

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.
