Kahului and Wailuku Maui Restaurant Guide
Kahului and Wailuku are not usually known for their tourist appeal, but you may find plenty of reasons to visit both. Kahului is where the only Costco and Walmart stores are located if you need to stock up on the essentials, and Borders in Kahului is our largest book, music and video store. Wailuku is well known to locals for its excellent and cheap eateries.
