Can make better burgers myself. All 3 of our burgers were overcooked even though we ordered them medium rare. The most expensive meat was dry. The mushroom veggie burger was delicious according to our vegetarian friend.

I was definitely ready for a burger, and this is the place to go. Yes, it's pricey, but well worth it. Note that all toppings are an extra charge, except lettuce, tomato, and mayo. That includes onions, cheese, etc. You can see why it gets pricey! Anyway, even though I typically forgo fries, these were amazing! Drinks are extra and... More

Our family loved eating here. Grass fed beef burgers from the island were amazing. Many ingredients are locally sourced. Even though located in a small food court--you are surrounded by amazing mountain views. They worked very well with our family's food allergies. Excellent eats!

Best burger on the island and the fries are to die for! This was recommended by a local down at the beach, so we had to try it. We were not disappointed at all! The burger blend was great and the topping were locally grown and fresh! Worth the drive up to Waimea!

This place is all the rage up there in Waimea, and I can see why. They really pump out some good food with local ingredients. There is a little bit of a wait to get your burger, but damn is it good. They do a pretty good business here and it's right in the middle of a small shopping center... More

I often hear how great the burgers are, but if there was a Red Robin on the Big Island, I'd rather eat there. By no means is Village Burger bad, it's average ... just be prepared to shell out nearly 50 bucks for food and drink for 3.

Been hearing about this place for some time. We came with high hopes and got disappointed... They messed up our orders. Food came out cold. Fries were in bad condition. And drinks came with a weird taste... Service was good though. I have to give this place another chance next time. I see potential.

We stopped here for lunch on our way from Puako to Volcano and both agreed that they have the best veggie burgers we have ever tasted. I loved that they used local ingredients and thought the burger prices were fair considering the food quality and portion size. The fries were delicious and one order was plenty to share. Actually, the... More

We all had a taste for a burger, and this was the best I've had in a long time, juicy and cooked to perfection. Both the regular and truffle fries were also very good. A bit pricey, even for the islands, but nice shady tables outside. Good stop if you are pretty hungry.Burgers are made to order so they take... More
