Maui Tacos, with eight locations in Hawaii and five on the Mainland, is embracing America's search for healthy menu options by participating in a free and educational Web site.
"We want to help our health-conscious guests easily locate the most healthful menu options at Maui Tacos," says Jeff Endervelt, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Maui Tacos International, Inc., who bought the Hawaii part of the business from Chef-founder Mark Ellman.
"HealthDiningFinder.com is a useful tool that not only provides nutritional information to consumers, it also proves that food can taste great and be healthy too," says Endervelt.

The fish taco is one of the featured items on the HealthyDiningFinder.com menu at 265 calories.
Maui Tacos features fish and shrimp tacos as part of its healthy offerings. The fish taco has 260 calories, three grams of fat and 18 grams of protein, while the shrimp taco contains 265 calories. But it's your guess how many calories are in the side of Maui slaw or the chipotle dressing.
HealthyDiningFinder.com is a Web site created by Healthy Dining as a go-to guide for health-conscious consumers who love to eat out. This free resource takes the guesswork out of identifying healthful choices on restaurant menus, enabling consumers to search for restaurants based on location, type of cuisine, price range, take-out availability and more.
Nutrition information (including calories, saturated fat, fiber, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, sugars and protein) is provided for each menu item featured on the Web site.
Ellman founded Maui Tacos in 1993 with the bold tastes of Mexico combined with exotic ingredients of Hawaii.
