Maui Tacos is a fast food franchise restaurant that serves Mexican food with a twist of Hawaiian flavor. The first Maui Tacos was opened by Mark Ellman in 1993 in Nāpili, Maui, Hawaiʻi. Ellman opened six more locations in Hawaiʻi before opening his first store in the mainland in 1998. Maui Tacos now has 21 restaurants in 11 states (including the District of Columbia) and recently opened its sixth Maui location, in Kalama Village, Kihei. In June 2009, the company's eight Hawaii locations were sold to Maui Tacos International, the New York-based company that operated the mainland locations under a franchise agreement.
The menu includes tacos, burritos, quesadillas, nachos, enchiladas, and salads. Ingredients for the tacos and burritos include pork, chicken, beef, steak, or fish. Each location includes a salsa bar with fresh salsa in exotic flavors.
