All their Mexican food is good along with great burger, chicken, fish sandwich. You know it's a great place when all the locals go there. Margaritas are top notch along with chips and excellent salsa.

Pollis has the best Mexican food on Maui. It is just like Southern California Mexican cuisine. They have a great happy hour 4-5:30 pm Mon. - Fri. Their shredded beef tacos & Makawowie nachos (w/the shredded beef) are awesome !!! Great margaritas, mango or regular.

Thanks for your question. Coming from Waialea, it would be about a 20-30 minute drive, depending on traffic. For directions, just pretend you are heading back to the airport. Turn right onto the Hana Hwy and drive to a... More
