One of the best Mexican restaurants ever! We truly enjoyed the generous portions and delicious meals! You have to try the amazing chicken tortilla soup! Great service and lovely ambience!
I wish I lived on Maui! I would go there every week! FIVE STARS!

This is definitely a not to be missed in Maui. We always try to get there when we're in town. The soft tacos are great with an unusual jalapeño pickled onions on the side, delicious. Good beverage selection. Their staff is very nice.

Our server and service was awesome. Went for the fish tacos but they didn't have much flavor. The chips and salsa were good but again, in Hawaii I was expecting some awesome fish tacos.

We eat here every time we come out to Maui. The food and service is so great that we come here several times per visit (2-3x/1 week visit). The drinks are all amazing (especially the Hibiscucs and Lilikoi Margaritas) and the food is killer. Literally, everything on the menu is delicious. How could you go wrong? We are out here on our honeymoon, which is actually our 5th time out here, and we've been here twice already. We will probably be back at least 1 more time before we had back.

When we arrived, the wait staff openly disagreed over where to seat us. Unfortunately the server who lost the argument became our server. She was angry the entire meal, taking her sweet time to bring food and/or refill drinks. The food was okay, and the food better be amazing when the service is as bad as we had.

From start to finish Sangritas was fabulous! Our server was knowledgeable, attentive and very friendly! The margaritas are so tasty we tried the lilikoi and Hibiscus and had fajitas! We polished off two bowls of chips with their delicious Guac and salsa! This will be a destination every time we are on the Westside of Maui!!!

The enchiladas and coconut fried ice cream were outstanding! The best we've had anywhere in the state. The outdoor eating area was comfortable and spacious. Good service and a good value for an evening meal in a tourist area.

We were Seated right away. I was looking for a good margarita. We order one each and were so disappointed . Super sweet.
The waiter was great, took them back and the bartender did make them a little better.
Chips and salsa was just okay.
Order another margarita and the same thing again. Super sweet. Sent it back and told them never mind.
The beef fajitas were good.

Happy hour at Sangrita Grill is enjoyable, as tacos, quesadilla, and nachos are reasonably priced as are house glasses of beer & wine. The food is tasty and service very good, but regular menu prices are high, particularly considering the noisy highway setting.

Food was average - nothing special but the service was abysmal. The waiter acted like he was stoned or half asleep. After waiting for 25 minutes, he comes back to our table and says he forgot what we ordered. We tell him again and then he brings my quesadeia but with chicken, not the chorizo I ordered. And no salad for my wife. We send it back and finally get the chorizo quesadeia and after 10 minutes, my wife's salad finally arrives.

My wife asked for a glass of water, but he again forgets and never brings the water. Finally, I ask a different waitress and we get the water.

I do not think this place will stay in business with this kind of sub-par service. Save your money and order a pizza from Round Table Pizza, right next door.

We had the oysters appetizers, good size, they were good
also had guacamole, too spicy and too pricey
We also had cheese enchiladas (needed more sauce) and the beans are great. Chicken enchilada suizas was also good.
Had happy hour margaritas, those were great , of course ! :-)

We were treated great by the staff. They were ready for our group of 8. The chips and salsa were fantastic and we added guacamole, perfect start. I rated this a 3 star because we were very disappointed in the pork chimichangas. The soup and enchiladas were top notch but the chimichangas had maybe 2 ounces of pork, mostly rice and beans. We expected better with all the reviews we reed. Two of our group ordered these and it took away from the great experience on the other items that I can't recommend this restaurant as I expected.

We found this place on open table looking for last minute reservations. It was not very busy, and the reservations were not necessary. The vegetarian options were what helped us decide on this location. The service was friendly, and the the food came out quick. The veggie tacos and enchiladas were great. They were more than just peppers and onions and great taste. The pork spare rib wet burrito was delicious as well. There was not a view and it is located just off of the road. That created a bit of road noise if you are sitting outside. All in all it was a good place to dine for a quick meal.

Sangrita Grill is a good choice for select happy hour beer/cocktails as well as pupus, but the restaurant is located in a strip mall on a busy road and non-happy hour prices are high. My party enjoyed the complimentary chips & salsa, as well as chicken quesadilla with Mexican beers. The food is tasty and service satisfactory. I'd definitely return during happy hour.

We returned to sangrita 15 months after our first visit and were disappointed. The food was fine, not as good as we remember. Our server may have been smoking some of the local herb before his shift. Likely not on the list on next Maui visit

Not understanding the bad reviews. Food is good. Drinks were good. Was it Javiers in Newport Beach? No, but it is good Mexican food for Maui. I mean, come on, pork braised in duck fat?!?! Was even better as leftover breakfast! Try this place out. Its solid
