I have a love/hate relationship with Front Street. Front Street is basically a tourist trap because there are a ton of the typical t-shirt, jewelry and art stores mixed in with restaurants. It can be fun to walk around Front Street and I always love the banyan tree in downtown Lahaina, but generally the area is too toursity for me. I love finding local hole in the wall places that don't charge an arm and a leg for a meal. But since we were already downtown we stopped in Cheeseburger In Paradise to grab a bite to eat.
Cheeseburger In Paradise is located on Front Street in the heart of downtown. It is right on the water and has gorgeous views of Lanai. It's a beautiful place to grab some food and watch the sunset or whale watch.
I ordered the Sesame Crusted Ahi Salad. I don't like ahi so I swapped it for grilled chicken instead. The salad is not normally gluten free because of the salad dressing and the won ton strips, so I simply picked the won ton strips off and asked for no dressing. They gave me the dressing on the side so I just set it off to the side on the table. The salad was delicious! My mom ordered the same salad and my dad ordered a grilled chicken sandwich without the cheese. Everything was really good! If you're looking for a quick and yummy bite to eat I do recommend stopping at Cheeseburger In Paradise. You'll get to enjoy a beautiful view while you eat!
