Coconut’s Fish Cafe
They have a menu consisting of a variety of fresh fish & grilled fish items. These are light, healthy, filling and delicious meals. They are located in the Azeka Plaza at 1279 S Kihei Rd Kihei, HI 96753. Phone: (808) 875-9979. Website: http://coconutsfishcafe.com
Our recommendation comes from the only thing we have ever eaten from their menu. This is the fish tacos. They say they have the best fish tacos in the world. We strongly agree (which is why we have never tried anything else on the menu!). They use 17 different types of fresh ingredients to mix in with the local fresh fish. If you have had fish tacos before I can guarantee you have never tasted anything quite like this. Fish tacos come with 2 which are more than filling for the average size appetite.
They have a menu consisting of salads, specialty sandwiches, Panini’s, gourmet hot dogs, keiki menu and breakfast. The meals range from light and healthy to heavy and filling. Everything we have tried from has been fantastic. They are located at 2511 S. Kihei Rd Kihei, HI 96753. Phone: (808) 879-1111. Website: http://www.808deli.com
Our recommendation is to try the Southern Squealer, Porkie, Roast Beast or the Red Rooster. They say they have the best sandwiches in Maui. We agree. Every time we have eaten there, it has been excellent. Only a few minutes wait and you can dine on your lunch in the back bistro.
Good burgers & fries at reasonable prices. There are plenty of burgers to choose from and the portions of fries they give you are plenty big for two. The burgers are not greasy or oily. They are located at 1819 S Kihei Rd, Kihei, HI 96753. Phone: (808) 879-0497. They do not have a website.
Good old fashion diner. Amazing shakes, burgers, & chili cheese fries. They have plenty on the menu to choose from and the diner has a great old timey feeling to it. They are located at: 1279 S Kihei Rd, Kihei, HI 96753. Phone: (808) 875-8944. They do not have a website.

Great Mexican food to go! Combo plates, burritos, tacos, vegetarian dishes, taco salads, traditional Mexican meals, Mexican bowls, kid’s meals, breakfast and desserts. They also have a large fresh salsa bar so you can season your meal exactly how you like it. They have two locations in Kihei. First one is located at: 1913 A S. Kihei Rd Maui, HI 96753.

We recommend the Taco Salad “Maui Style.” It is a huge salad with fresh everything. Plenty of food to fill up even the most hungry of appetites.
Fat Daddy’s Smokehouse & BBQ
Great fresh smokehouse BBQ style food! Fresh Maui grass fed beef from the Maui Cattle Company. Meat is smoked with local Kiawe wood that has been soaked in beer for added flavor. Menu: Meats from the smoker, sandwiches, sides, Texas style chili, fat plate meals, keiki menu and desserts. They are located at: 1913 South Kihei Road Maui, HI 96753. Phone: (808) 879-8711.

We recommend the “Braddah Plate” which is a choice of 2 meats and 2 sides. Great food, plenty to eat.
