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...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. We each got...More

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.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Why do they not cater to customer needs- especially substitutions when needed. I am vegan, cannot have dairy- therefore not cheese or sour cream but refused to sub guac. Crazy to have to pay $15 for a burrito with rice, beans, veg and guac added

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.
