On a recent visit to Maui we wanted to try this shaved ice place and found out the one we had planned to visit was closed. Local Boys South has permanently closed. So we decided to make the drive to the other location. We were...not disappointed! My husband got one with ice cream on the bottom and I got one without. After building a huge mound of ice and adding our flavors she asked if wanted cream on the top. We asked her just to put a little bit at first so we could try it! It was delicious. So all that being said, opt for the cream on top! It was so good my husband drove out of the way the next day to get another one. Highly recommend!More

This is my first time to the lovely Lahaina, Hi. I came across this wonderful place nice, fast, & friendly service. I've had the shaved ice two days in a row and have two more days left🤗

This is one of my favorite places for shave ice. Splitting hairs, the ice is a little better at Ululani's but Local Boys has a TON of great flavors. Either go with their recommended combos or make your own. I don't think you can go...wrong, just make sure to get a scoop of macadamia nut ice cream at the bottom:) The guy behind the counter was super friendly.More

Believe the people that tell you ... this is a requirement if you visit the islands. I envisioned the ice things that you get at a carnival with some flavoring squirted on. But these are truly different, and no comparison in terms of taste. You...can choose from a wide variety of flavors, many endemic to Hawaii, and combine several in a special treat. So easy to find and inexpensive that there is no reason to visit without trying. However, don't believe Local Boys website, which told us they were open later and we stopped by to find it closed. Be safe and and get normal business hours.More

During our week long stay on Maui we sampled shave ice everywhere we went. This place has the best prices for what you get. There offer two sizes - small and large. The large is $6.75 but it includes a scoop of ice cream on...the bottom (the haupia or coconut ice cream is the best). Plus, they offer 3 flavors - anything you choose. Don’t forget the snow cap (sweetened condensed milk on top). DELICIOUS and refreshing on a hot day! Add the red azuki beans if they have them available.More

EXCELLENT COMBO!!!! So simple and delicious, fun and refreshing dessert. I had the macadamia nut ice cream with the Lava Flow and Kauai cream on top. The big baby was enough (size). They use Hawaiian pure cane sugar, what a difference from that processed sugars.

Cute little shaved ice place on front street. Got a shaved ice with vanilla ice cream and with 3 flavors and was so good and creamy! Guy behind the counter was super friendly and helpful and the prices are reasonable! Check this place out

Went to the Kihei branch. Very good except for no chocolate flavor! Lots of syrup poured on and went all through the ice (maybe a little too much?). No extra charge for ice cream added and the ice cream was very good. Straw provided which...was a nice touch!More
