We had lunch at the bar, which has a pretty good view into the kitchen - (!!?!) I don't know what to say except it's not very clean back there. That being said, neither of us got sick from the food, and it tasted pretty...More

Try the fish tacos - they are delicious, I raved about them to my family and when we had the chance to return to Maui it was on the top of my must do list to return!

Polli's has excellent Mexican food in nice, large portions. Ingredients are fresh, drinks are awesome and service is great. If you are visiting Makawao or just passing through on your way up or down Haleakala, make sure you stop by Polli's. You will leave full...More

Nice restaurant with a bar if you like. Simple fare, reasonably priced. Great if you've just done the Haleakala Crater or road to Hana run and need a food break. Friendly staff. Up in the paniolo town of Makawao.

We are wanting to find some good gluten free accommodating restaurants. Do you accommodate gluten free? My daughter is celiac and we will be looking for some options when we visit Makawao.
