We stopped for lunch while waiting for our helicopter ride. The staff greeted us when we arrived and our waiter was attentive to our needs in a low key way. He was quick of wit and answered our questions about the menu including the beef which is raised on the island. We all opted for burgers (seemed sacrilege to order... More

The "Hawaii Revealed" book gave this place a thumbs up and we agree. Excellent burgers as well as many other offerings - they even offer a local beef that they say is similar to Kobe Beef - for a little increase in cost. We enjoyed the burgers from the menu and they were absolutely excellent. The server was great and... More

Hilo Burger Joint made for a pleasant dinner. You pick your own seating, there are the usual board games at the door to help with the Big Islands very laid back service, and the wait staff was friendly - although our waitress forgot one of our drink orders. The ambiance and atmosphere was great, and their bathrooms were clean and... More

RESTAURANT AND FOOD CRITIQUE................ Last night, because of posting this photo of Hilo Burger Joint's California Burger, I couldn't resist anymore. I found myself sitting at a table salivating while I ordered this dish. Waitress/Food Server, ANNIE was most pleasant and genuinely nice. she was also waiting open a few other tables, but I did not feel at anytime that... More

If you want a burger, go to this place. The atmosphere was great, especially for families. The menu has a lot of options.

We all liked our burgers and fries. I got the Vegan burger. It is made with rice. Bread tasted homemade. I had sweet potato fries. All very yummy and fresh. Others had regular beef burgers and house fries. Everyone said it was very good. Large 1/3 pound burgers and lots of fries. It is a bar and grill. Really more... More

Randomly looking for a place to eat on a Saturday night. Drove by the Hilo Burger Joint and was pleasantly surprised to get a great burger. There were 5 of us and all ordered a different burger. Plus we got live music. A local on her Ukelele!

The food took forever, the servers were frazzled with four tables and the portion size small and of low quality. Paid almost $15 for lunch and had to stop and grab a snack. Put it this way, 7/11 has better salads for a third of the cost. The waitress made no apologies for the wait either. If you want quality... More
