Island of Maui

Don’t let the word “Mexican” limit your notion of this sturdy, home-away-from-home cookhouse in Makawao. Some regulars come here just for the barbeque chicken, the ribs, or the burgers. South-of-the-border fare includes vegetarian and seafood options. Although the menu is varied, the ambiance is cantinastyle. Polli’s booths are deep and comfy; the bar often packed. Sombreros hang from the ceiling and the walls are lined with images of Mexico and windsurfing. Try the fish tacos and a mango margarita! Open daily for lunch & dinner.
