Good food… But a bit pricey.

Have been here many times… Enjoy the food and the quality is good but the burgers are a bit pricey. I enjoy substituting the turkey burger for some of the more lavish hamburger options – never have a problem doing this.

We've now eaten twice while on vacation. Sort of a raucous Polynesian touch. My Santa Barbara Burger was loaded with avocado and hard to hold with one hand. I sorta drooled all over my plate. The fish and rice also looked nice. The great thing it is in a kind of food court with many casual dining options.

Great burgers--fun, easy eating for families! We found the Kahuna Grill located in the Camino Real Shopping center with other restaurants and a movie theater.

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.
