I stopped here with a friend before taking a helicopter tour of the volcano. The beer was great! Very cold like I prefer and the old bar atmosphere was almost like something in a wild west movie. My friend ordered a large burger and fries and I ordered the hamburger steak platter with fries and gravy. We both agree .... More

If you love a good burger joint - this is the place. We stopped for lunch after driving across the island. The menu is huge and everyone ate very well. The burgers were outstanding and a good variety of beers.

Great local spot for really good food, and a small parking lot just a few doors away. One of the few really good food places in Hilo.

What an unbelievable burger joint. Great menu, friendly and great service. It is a local spot where the staff knew a lot of the people but it was one of the best burgers. Burgers are local and grass fed, great salads and beer selection. This is a must if you are on the big island!

There were three in our adult group and everyone raved about the burger they chose!! They had a guitar player which provided a nice atmosphere. We even... More

We were looking for a place with a good atmosphere, good grub and lots of beers on tap. This place exceeded our expectations with their phenomenal burgers, friendly staff and fun live band. If you're just looking for a night on the town (but not late night since they close at 11:00) this is it!
