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

Great burgers, larger than average patty size & they have vegetarian patty too. I had the cobb salad which is popular and was a good choice with green leaf lettuce. Their fries are very good & they have sweet potato fries too. The chicken sandwich on the chibata was warm & very good. I had half of my daughter's and... More

I just love Kahuna's turkey burgers. This has a funky atmosphere. You can sit inside or outside. I prefer the outside in good weather. Great people watching

The burgers are so great that it took a long time before I tried something else off the menu. The salads are fresh and crisp and are truly a substitute for the fries or awesome onions rings. The teriaki chicken plate is so good because the chicken is well flavored AND the rice is GOOD. The rice isn't just a... More
