Ditch the Resorts and Eat at South Maui Food Trucks

south maui food trucks

Hawaii had lunch wagons long before today’s Mainland food truck craze, nevertheless, even with all of the activity and tourism, there are only a few of places where you can find food trucks. My brother gave us the heads up on checking out the food trucks and we couldn’t be more grateful. Resort food is overpriced and usually mediocre at best, so ditch it and hit these food trucks next time you are on the valley isle.
