Maui Chef Cooks Up 4th of July Deals for Affordable Family Dining

Turkey Club with fries and Heinekin at Kaanapali Restaurant.Are you vacationing on Maui for the 4th of July and looking for fun traditional American food to celebrate the holiday with your family? Then you’ll want to get over to my Maui restaurant in the Kaanapali Resort, CJ’s Deli & Diner, for fantastic homemade Comfort Food all day on the Fourth of July!

To celebrate the 4th of July holiday on Maui, instead of tips for planning a destination wedding or sharing Maui catering advice, I created a few menu options to honor traditional American Fourth of July holiday foods at CJ’s Deli & Diner:

Best Breakfast in Kaanapali:

Start the Day in Image of made to order omelette at CJs Comfort Zone Kaanapali restaurant. Kaanapali with the traditional All American Breakfast! You only need to decide how you want your Two Eggs prepared, if you prefer Bacon or Sausage and then choose between maple or coconut syrup for on the 2 Pancakes. All for only $8.95 – We think this is the Best Breakfast Deal in Kaanapali if not all West Maui! Full Breakfast Menu available. Breakfast is served daily from 7 am till 11 am.

Fourth of July on Maui Lunch Recommendations:

Burgers, Burgers, Burgers on Maui!Burger and Fries at CJ's Kaanapali Restaurant in West Maui.

That’s all there is to say about that… Everyone in America should eat a burger on the 4th of July! Many prefer my ‘Name That Burger of Yours’ because they get their half pound Gold Angus beef topped with their choice of three toppings for only $8.95! Toppings include Bacon, Mushrooms, Salsa, Cheese, Grilled Maui Onions and BBQ Sauce.

Name That Burger of Yours: You Name It – You Got It! We wanna see it! Share your epicurean burger fantasy on our Facebook Page: Post a pic of Your Name That Burger of Yours and tell the world the name of your Maui burger!

And Vegetarians don’t need to be left out – Vegans love our Veggie Burger with Hummus and Sprouts, $8.50. Or, see our complete Vegetarian and Gluten Free menus.

Not in the mood for a burger on the Fourth? A BLT or my Classic ClubHouse could fulfill your craving for a traditional American comfort food and if you pair the sandwich with a side of potato salad would certainly qualify as a Fourth of July dinning variant from burgers or barbecue.

Remember the Potato Salad! A Fourth of July picnic would not be complete without homemade Potato Salad.

Sparkling Dinner Ideas for 4th of July in Kaanapali:

Mixed Grille Big Barbecue  – BBQ Ribs, Mahi Mahi and Chicken served with Vegetable du Jour and Rice or Potato. for only $13.50


Mango Glazed Ribs – A full plate of pork ribs glazed in my famous homemade mango sauce! $14.95

Bring Your Own Beer or Wine and we’ll set you up with ice and chilling container. BYOB is Welcome with Lunch and Dinner!

CJ’s Kaanapali Diner Review

My daughter and I visited Maui a couple of weeks ago and came to your restaurant 3 times. I just wanted to thank you for your willingness to meet our gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free requirements. We loved being able to eat out safely and wish we had a CJ’s at home! I just wrote you a stellar review on Trip Advisor. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the summer!

CJ’s Maui Restaurant Review

Wonderful for a Sunday Brunch since you can order breakfast until 11:00am! Had a ‘custom’ 3 ingredient omelette (I chose mushrooms, feta and spinach) with nicely crunchy on the outside and soft inside home potatoes, yummy. Hubby had the pancakes with fresh fruit! These are light fluffy slightly sweet batter pancakes, not those heavy bland ones (OK I admit it, I had to have a few bites of his breakfast…) Service was fast and friendly :0). The menu is EXTENSIVE, we live here and love it!

CJ’s Deli and Diner Maui Restaurant Review

Fact: CJ’s Maui onion soup will melt your face off it’s so good. Best I’ve ever had. It gets 20 stars.
Alas, it’s not on the menu every day… But when my fiancee and I went this past summer and were lucky to meet Chef CJ in person and mentioned that we had been thinking about the onion soup since the last time we visited two years earlier, he was kind enough to put it on the next day’s menu. We went back the following day and ordered it, and it was amazing, just as we had remembered. Another fact: the onion soup at CJ’s is better than the onion soup at Mama’s Fish House (and at like 1/4th of the price). Really. It’s that good. Part of me wants to reverse engineer CJ’s onion soup recipe, quit my job, and make millions selling onion soup to the mainland masses! (or: CJ, wanna make a deal?)
I think that the loco moco gravy is made from the same goodness. So that’s great too. The potato salad is tasty as well.
The to-go lunch plate is respectable.

Maui Chef CJ Prepares Mushroom Soup for Kaanapali Restaurant Guest

On a previous visit to Maui, I had the most delicious mushroom soup at CJ’s Deli and Diner in Kaanapali. When I arrived in Maui this week, I emailed the restaurant and asked what day they might have the soup. The owner and chef, Christian Jorgensen (CJ), promptly replied even though he was on vacation in Vegas. He gave me a number to call to check on the soup of the day. Then when he returned to Maui on Friday, he emailed me to let me know he would have the soup for me on Saturday. When I got there, he was so friendly and the soup was even more scrumptious than I had remembered. I really appreciated how valued he made me feel as a customer.

Good Morning, My wife and I spent last week in Maui. Your early bird special was the best. After we found you, we ate breakfast there every morning. You had two regular coffees that we just loved.

CJ’s Maui Restaurant Customer Comments on CJ’s Private Luau in her Blog

Aloha, Just wanted to let you know that this post was up last Friday and it will be included (linked) with all of our Hawaii properties. Thank you both for excellent service. You made our trip to Maui very memorable! Feel free to comment on the post. It’s always good to have additional information and your input.

Aloha, We were in to see you many times during our stay last month in Ka’anapali, couple of things for you:
Need to order some more of your CJ’s roasted Kona Coffee. I see it’s not yet on your website, only the Maui Coffee Co. stuff. We ran out last weekend and are having withdrawls, please help!! Need 2 bags urgently!!
Secondly, your claim about having the best corned beef hash on the island. I think you’ve understated this because it’s the best I’ve had any where in the world! And that covers a lot of ground as I’ve been to every continent multiple times. Just the best anywhere, period!! Don’t suppose you would have that for delivery to Indiana would you? Maybe by the pound(s)?
Great people and even better food, Mahalo CJ’s. Seriously though, please let me know about that coffee. How do we get some ordered and shipped to Indiana?

​CJ’s Deli & Diner Rocks! Been here several times while visiting Maui – each time we tried different meals and each time we LOVED the food, service and atmosphere. Only suggestion would be to provide regular dinner napkins along with this paper type – because we’re messy!

Aloha and Mahalo from Detroit
