Hilo Burger Joint fit the bill for us for lunch.

I had checked reviews of places to eat for when we arrived in Hilo from Kauai. We knew that we would want to eat upon arrival, somewhere close to the airport and near some of the sites that we wanted to see in the Hilo area. It was a very casual place tables and chairs, and a bar. The... read more

Definitely recommend Fire and Ice fries! Blue cheese burger salad was delicious with lots of grilled mushrooms and onions. The Kona porter rounded out the meal. Yum!

Went 2x to this place during our visit. Both times the burgers and special fries, garlic or cheese and bacon, were yum! Friendly place with mix of locals and tourists and beer. On our first visit Dominique, our waitress,was so friendly and made us feel very welcome. Second visit the waitress was nice and efficient. Parking is a little iffy.... More

Friendly staff, but the burgers were just okay. We tried the in house made vegetarian burger which was flavorless. However my son loved his fish and chips.

Often times it can seem like the entire city of Hilo shuts down at 6pm. Thank goodness for places like the Hilo Burger Joint for great food, music and atmosphere. We came here on a Tuesday night and the vibe was super relaxed, with great music and vibes. Service was very good and the food was excellent. I ordered the... More

Burgers are juicy and served on sweet bread. Music was provided so that was fun. Wait staff was friendly and customers seemed to be a mix of families and friends.

This is a great place to stop in for a crowd-pleasing dinner. Their kitchen is open until 10, which is later than most local places, which is an added bonus for families like mine that sometimes get sidetracked exploring the island!
