Great range of bespoke burgers, with fresh ingredients. Had a gluten free menu which is a rarity and a plus for us. Would recommend all of them. Fries were also delicious. Seating was only average as it is on the car park at a shopping centre.. though could also go inside to a food court.

We drove from Waikaloa to Waime on a gorgeous Hawaiian day. The restaurant is in a mall food court owned by the famous Parker Ranch. It is claen, but not fancy. Yourn order is taken at the counter and then you can eat in the food court or at several outside tables overlooking the parking lot. The burgers my wife... More

This is a fun spot at the Waimea shopping center's food court. My wife and I hit it on a Sunday after church before we headed back down the hill to the Waikoloa Hilton Resort. Fantastic burger made from local beef. If you want a great burger, go here. This trip I asked a lot of Kona locals where their... More

Wow, it was juicy, fresh and cooked just as requested. Ample without being too much and the tomatoes were red, thick and flavorful. Fries thin and crunchy on outside, soft inside. We stopped in Waimea to seek out a Parker Ranch burger and instead discovered the Village Burger next to the food court near Foodland. Highly recommend.

I was concerned that a burger placed rated as one of the best in the country wouldn't have a great vegetarian choice, but I was wrong. The two veggie burger options were both really good. My husband and I got one of each and split the pleasure. Well worth the stop for lunch.

We read how Village Burger was in the top 10 burger restaurants in the US. Could sleep Waimea have an excellent burger place? YES. The beef was juicy and delicious and the fries were great alone or with one of the dipping sauces. We went around 5:15 and had a short wait. You can get it to go too. Even... More

We stopped at Village Burger on our way to Waipio Valley and what a surprise, the burgers are amazing, specially the Ahi burger with truffle fries.

Weird location on the outside corner bend of a "mall" in Waimea, with somewhat long waits (nearly 40 minutes for us), and lots of customers. You walk in, order off the wall menu, take the buzzy thing, and wait outside. Please look the menu over before you get to the front and be ready to order, lots of people will... More

Located in the mall right in town where Foodland is. It's right next door to the Parker Ranch store. There's beef, veal and lamb choices for the burger as well as vegetarian and ahi burgers. Comes with tomato and mayo which more like aoli. We had the island beef med rare with grilled onions and goat cheese ( the add... More

Located in probably the largest mall in Waimea. Our Google map took us off the beaten path based on the address. To be safe make sure that you enter Village Burger. Everything is locally sourced which is great. You can go around the corner and see the staff making the patties from the freshly ground beef. The burger by itself... More
