Hidden Gem: Sheldon Simeon's Tin Roof

(Source: Hawaii Magazine) Outside of the cozy takeout-style eatery, there’s a line. It’s 1:45 p.m., 15 minutes before chef and owner Sheldon Simeon closes for the day, but there’s still a strong demand for a bowl of his ‘ono comfort-food grinds.

Tin Roof is nestled between an art gallery and a payday loan store in Dairy Center, a nondescript strip mall off the bustling Dairy Road in Kahului near the airport. Don’t let the location deter you. What Tin Roof lacks in ambiance and abundant seating—I saw people eating in the parking lot, even in their cars—it more than makes up for in food.

Tin Roof • Open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
360 Papa Place, Suite Y, Kahului, Maui, (808) 868-0753, tinroofmaui.com
