Fred's is great if you want to grab some Mexican food. Both indoor and outdoor seating. A varied menu and good Mexican food. This is a casual eatery with a fun decor and nice colours. Situated on the main drag in Kihei and can't be missed.

Good food, ambiance, service and value. Recommend! Open air dinning and large menus. Casual, busy but ok to walk in.

Good spot for breakfast. Service kinda sucks unless you get Dillion as your server. So please ask for him, unless your ok with below average attention. We had a variety of breakfast items during the week, they were all very good. Enjoy!

Service was good, food was average. We did have a fun time as my daughters and I met a very old friend and her new man there for drinks and dinner. I would go again but only for happy hour, cheaper drinks and more reasonable appetizers to munch on. We enjoyed ourselves very much but if you are craving really... More

After 2 days of travel we were ready for SOMETHING, and we were not sure what. Fred's was near our condo and we at least wanted a drink. We were seated quickly and the atmosphere was great.

Funky decor. Great location with other restaurants and shopping. Just around the corner from the Maui Banyan. Daily food and drink specials. Beautiful ocean views. My daughter left her stuffed octopus while we were there and they kept it in their lost and found. Very much appreciated as she had just purchased it at the Ocean Centre.

Just good Mexican food. I got the enchiladas. The chips weren't wonderful but the salsa was really good so all was well. I wish we would have time to go back. Decent pricing.

This was close to our hotel. The food was good - we all had tacos. Service was good as well. We would return. Lots of families there with kids too.

Had a fun dinner with very reasonably priced assorted tacos, margaritas and beer! The complimentary chips and salsa were very tasty! The meal was very filling-a few of us (ladies) ordered three tacos but would have been satisfied with just two. A fun affordable place on "taco Tuesday".

We enjoyed the tacos and sunset; the wait staff was friendly and the service was good. Parking can be tricky, but be patient as it is worth it.
