The marketplace in Goleta is outdoors and like traditional malls, has a food court. The only difference is that it is outdoors. Food must be ordered at the counter. Diners are given a number and a server runs the food to the table. We ordered burgers - it is primarily a burger place. Nothing exciting. We ate outdoors, the food... More

A little Aloha, right here in Goleta, California. Love the Chicken Kanobs! My wife likes their salads. Casual, order at the counter and it is brought to you.

I lived in Honolulu and was visiting my brother in Goleta so he suggested we give it a try. "Ono" in Hawaiian means "delicious", and it was not. I ordered the de rigeur plate lunch of teriyaki beef with a scoop of rice and a scoop of mac salad. It was perfectly tasteless without any of the familiar flavors. I... More

I love coming to kahuna grill. I usually get the Ortega green chili burger. Sometimes though I might get the shish kabobs. Both are great and they have great fries. Freshly brewed tea and they're not stingy with the condiments. Great coffee malts.

Had lunch there today after a morning of surfing. Inside was too hot so we were happy to have a quiet table outside in shade. I had tri tip sandwich, it had no flavor and our 2 orders of French fries were gross and soggy :( it has been hit and miss the last few times we have been there.

Love this place! When we come here, I almost always have the Ortega Chicken Sandwich, which includes a nice big chicken breast with Jack cheese and Ortega chiles, plus their special sauce and lettuce etc. on toasted sourdough - yum! They also have a great pulled pork sandwich, sweet potato fries, salads, Hawaiian style burgers, root beer floats....etc.....and they'll wrap... More

Kahuna Grill has a fantastic Kona Hamburger, with pineapple slices, cheese, and fixings! Their onion rings are also really good! Enjoy

This place serves a decent variety of burgers and other hot grill-type sandwiches and items (Chicken, Fish, etc). Everything here is pretty average -- not bad but nothing you'd go out of your way to try. Its main strength is its location, being right in the middle of the "big box" shopping center. But if I want to go somewhere... More
