Oh my. Go to Hilo just for a burger at this joint. The food is marvelous and the service by Adrie is over the top. Mahalo.

Crazy burgers on the menu, lots of beers on draft, not pretentious or stuffy. You can get any of the burgers in salad form or without a bun, so good for folks eating gluten free, too.

This got great reviews on Yelp. Definitely not the best burger I've had, but it's open late and the burgers are good. They were out of their "famous" Kobe-like beef though. So that was too bad. When I read the reviews that "the music is too loud" I laughed. But the music really IS too loud - and I'm 27... More

Visited with my son and his wife, who live in Hilo, and who recommended this place highly. I had sliders and fries, with a beer and it was delicious. Service was efficient and friendly and the atmosphere was welcoming and relaxed. We were there for happy hour so got 50% off our beers. For 3 meals and 6 beers, the... More

Great place to get an ultimate burger in Hilo, only thing is sometimes it's best to make reservations because they can get busy and the outside tables ain't appealing to eat at. Other than that the food is good!

There are various different burgers offered. Even had a Kimchee burger which was outstanding. The fat fries were good as anywhere I've eaten. Staff are friendly and quick service.

Yes, I had the best burger I ever ate in my life at Hill Burger Joint. I have eaten at more than a few places that specialize in burgers all over the U.S. The patty was so juicy, and seasoned perfectly. There are a lot of options for toppings, but I went with a classic mushroom and Swiss cheese. The... More

After an enjoyable visit to the Lyman Museum in Hilo, we headed to the Hilo Burger Joint wth relatively high expectations after reading several excellent reviews. We weren't disappointed. As a family of six with four adults and two kids, 9 and 14, all of us were able to order our burgers exactly as we like them. Much to our... More

Heck yes! If you are looking for an amazing burger and a little local feel, this is your place. The burger menu if great- lots of combos you won't find elsewhere. The Kim Chee burger was out of sight... double D-lecious. As a bonus, the prices are a nice break from the typical island premiums you pay elsewhere.
