Big Beach BBQ is a food truck with excellent barbecue food in generously sized portions, at food truck prices. It’s not at Big Beach, but is in Kihei, usually at 1819 South Kihei Road on the street side of the Kukui Mall. Phone 808-214-8739. It’s bright green, so easy to spot.
As with all food trucks, the menu is short here, with nine items to choose from. Every one of them is delicious, beautiful, large, and surprising. By surprising, I mean that, even though I have eaten at most Maui restaurants and food trucks, I never saw or tasted anything prepared exactly like any one of the items at the Big Beach BBQ food truck.
If I had to choose one item as the most amazing here, it would be the Big Beach Nachos. Friends had told me that I have to try the nachos from this truck, but I didn’t understand why, since I previously assumed that nachos were simply a few tortilla chips with melted cheese on top. The menu at this truck says “not your traditional nachos” and boy oh boy is that ever right. They serve a huge plate covered with lots of crisp fresh tortilla chips, which are then covered with loads of the tastiest tender Kiawe smoked pulled pork, and then that’s all covered with garlic lemon aioli, guava chilli aioli, barbecue sauce, tomatoes, limes, cabbage, peppers, and wedges of fresh pineapple. The flavors, especially the three sauces, are outstanding.
But I couldn’t settle for only tasting the one most famous item above. I had to go back to try the others. I was not disappointed. The tacos (fish or pork), the pulled pork sliders, and the pinedog (butterflied and grilled) where great too.
The owners of Big Beach BBQ, Linda and Jerry Lauther, are super friendly, cheery, helpful, and always glad to see you, making your visit to their food truck always a fun experience.
