The folks who work here are always friendly and that goes a long way with me. We had queso which is deelish. We also had the nachos with added guac and it is a HUGE amount of food. Shrimp tacos were very tasty, the sauce has a nice flavor, not quite buffalo but yummy. Comes with three tacos and beans and rice. Cannot complain about serving sizes. Recommend trying some of the sampler salsa sides, particularly liked the Serrano Garlic. Keep it up Roasted Chiles.

Non-traditional (perhaps one call it nouveau) preparations of Mexican dishes are delightful to both the eye and pallet. Wonderfully skilled chef.

Was hoping against hope that this place would be a decent Mexican restaurant: I was disappointed. The first clue was the Cheese Whiz and canned jalapeños used on the nachos. The chicken fajita was tasteless and served with only onions and peppers. Unfortunately, one could tell that almost everything came from a can and there was nothing fresh or bright about this meal.

We recreated our first date and the food was still just as amazing as it was 2 1/2 years ago. We definitely love this place!!! It’s so underrated because the food is so amazing. The flavors are spot on.

Our food had no spice or flavor or salsa.
The fajitas were cooked nicely, but the fish in the tacos was breaded and fried and bland.

We have eaten at Roasted Chili’s several times and enjoyed the food and experience, even in COVID times, however, tonight we felt that the owner/staff did not respect/enforce the mask requirements for many of the guests entering or walking through the restaurant. A group of six patrons arrived (who obviously knew the owner) ....two of the three women wore masks, none of the three men wore masks, but were shown in and seated. Another couple arrived (again, seemed familiar with the owner)....No masks, walked through, stopped and visited with a table behind us. We are offended that the owner would not request these patrons to wear a mask. On the door of the restaurant the sign reads “Please wear a mask so we can stay open”.....this is definitely not enforced. We cannot patronize an establishment that does not support the best interests of ALL OF ITS GUESTS. It appears MONEY is truly the driver at Roasted Chilies. Given what we saw tonight, it is just a matter of time before this restaurant is shut down for a COVID outbreak.

We love this place, the food was amazing! The best Mexican food on Maui. The ambiance is fine, the prices are like any other good places to eat. Unfortunately the service was bad, they had a new server training so he was slow & was not as friendly maybe he was shy I don’t know. The older man I think he was the manager was helpful he was training him but I wish we had an experienced server. I hope they train inexperienced servers & hire more experienced servers. It was first time for my friends & they really loved the food, we ordered a lot, but they did not care for the service. Overall if there’s anything that will cause you to go back it’s definitely the Food!
Thank you.

We prefer our margaritas in rocks glasses with less mixer. When we asked for that they accommodated and they turned out great. We commented on the delicious salsa verde then learned the the owner makes all the salsas and sauces from scratch in the morning. We will be back!

First of all, our server, Nicholette was an absolute joy. She was clearly very busy, but always made sure we had what we wanted and took care of us. She was also very honest in her descriptions of the food, so we liked what we order. Above and beyond, she took the time to be her personable self with us. That makes a huge difference. Tell her Ed and Connie say hi.
The food was above average Mexican food. The quality and freshness of the shrimp were excellent and the carnitas was very good and the portions were quite generous. We happily have leftovers. Nothing was very spicy, but that's why they make hot sauce and this is Maui. Drinks were tasty and did actually have alcohol, unlike some places. Like everything here, a bit pricy, but that is nothing new. The guacamole was very fresh and good. I would rate the restaurant overall higher, but I try to keep things in perspective. It is a family restaurant and good, but not as creative as I have seen elsewhere, nor is it a romantic, high-class night out. We will certainly be back! For what it is, certainly recommended.

Wow based on what I read here I was expecting something very different, this place was a disaster. I cannot express how bad it was from the moment we walked in and waited to be acknowledged to the end when we left, all of it was TERRIBLE. We waited for water , we waited for drinks, we waited for the waiter to even look us in the eye. The food was cold when brought to us and really wasn’t great, I had the chicken enchiladas and my husband had the chicken quesadilla. The best part of the meal was the queso we had that was a lot like the stuff I make at home with velvetta and rotel tomatoes. We sat at the table by the front door and watched people wait to be greeted and also watched people leave because they weren’t. Also had the spicy margarita and that was not good either . Seriously I can’t say how bad this place was! Gross !

Best Mexican in Maui! Old standards and creative items along with a great bar if you’re so inclined...Plus, the people are terrific, fast and friendly. This is definitely not old, tired “microwave Mexican!” Fresh, tasty, inspired cuisine at a great value! Convenient parking too...

The bartender need more training to deal with all kinds of people. She was quite busy dealing with her friends rather then the customers like us who were spending $100.
