Lunch near Maui Airport?

Aloha -

Heading to Maui next week and arrive right at lunch time. Looking for a good place to grab something to eat before we hit Costco and the Natural Food Market. Used to be a great Cuban place nearby but i believe they closed. Open to all types of food - some place that you can sit down (inside or outside), trucks OK if there are benches.

Any great finds at Costco lately? On Kauai we got great poke, ahi, hawaiian soda and local salsa.

    Probably your best bet nearby is Da Kitchen.

      Tasty Crust for lunch is what I'd do. Da Kitchen would be another choice.

        We usually hit Sam Sato's for lunch, and then hit Costco. Think they close around 2:00.

          Gee, I was just thinking in the immediate area. But if you guys are going to stretch it to Kahului & Wailuku town areas, then you could also include Geste Shrimp Truck, Tiffany's, & Cafe O'Lei.

        The Maui Culinary Institute is close to the airport, in the Maui Community College complex. If they're open (school may not be in session), the selection of foods in the food court offered vary from made to order sandwiches to sushi and quality is excellent.
