Dont miss this one!

Happy Hour has great beer pricing. The food was great. Kids loved it. Any burger can be made into a loco moco twist bowl. The chix bowl was terrific.

The Blue Cheese Burger was delicious. The grilled mushrooms and onions was a nice touch. My family enjoyed our burger fix here and every selection hit the spot. Had Fire and Ice fries for an appetizer to munch on - truly amazing.

On a wet hurricane-ridden soggy day in Volcano we decided to lunch in Hilo. The guide book had a few recommendations, and being in Hawaii the choice was a bit limited. We're not burger people so weren't looking forward to more fast food type junk. We avoid Maccy Ds and other such joints like the plague so opted for this... More

We stopped into Hilo Burger Joint after flying into the Hilo airport from NYC. It was one of the few places open later in the day on a Sunday and a quick drive away (though parking is a little rough - we had to circle around quite a lot to get a spot). The restaurant was really packed with people,... More

It is a basic burger joint. Nothing special, however, I took to it because they used locally sourced produce (especially Beef), where they can. The menu is lengthy, if you like burgers. The real down I met the no substitutions ever rule. A little when the request was for something on the menu. Basically, having been there before I knew... 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!
