Good burger, if you don't mind the drive

This place isn't close to anything. And it doesn't have a rest room for patrons. However, it leaves Bubba's in the culinary dust. A nice variety of burgers, cooked to order. Their default service mode is sliced in half, which can pose a challenge, but they survive it. If you request "uncut... read more

If you want a fast food type burger, this is the place for you! Yummy, perfect balance of meat, bun and condiments! $20 for a cheese burger, teriyaki burger, order of fries and two soft drinks....can't beat that in Kauaii! Lots of Hawaiian atmosphere with roosters and chickens!

Awesome burgers, good variety all charred. Definitely on my return visit list. Next time will try the avocado burger the tree above our seats was loaded with ripe avocados.

This is the best burger joint in the islands. Make sure you stop here for burgers, fish sandwiches, and always onion rings - at least once during your stay on Kauai. Pick up food to take to the beach, stop by on your way back to your condo or hotel, or eat on the outdoor tables with the roosters. The... More

This is the place for a straight up basic, char-grilled thin burger pattie, with your favorite toppings and great fries. The wait can be long during peak times. The seating is outside at not-too-clean tables and benches, and there is NO public restroom. If you like more exotic burgers, in a nicer setting, try Street Burger in Kapa'a.

Duane's special burger has cheddar & swiss cheeses, pickle, 1000 Island sauce, sprouts, lettuce, onion! Yummy! Enough to share with your honey, if onion rings are ordered too. Friday at 4:30 pm and burgers were flying out of there! Will return, again & again!

Is Duane's worth the stop? Absolutely. But advise calling your order in ahead of time to avoid a 15-20 minute wait. Rating the burger with a 5, but caution avoiding the onion rings, as they are the unforgivable frozen kind. If you are a burger enthusiast, here's my thoughts to you... if you are a purist and judge all burgers... More

We found this place by accident. We stopped at the General Store next to Duane's & the aroma of food just called us over. Our hamburger & fries was very good & we didn't have a long wait. Outdoor seating was fine.

This place was recommended by the staff at Blue Hawaiian helicopters and it did not disappoint. Closes early so go for lunch.

Stopped here on the way from the airport to our condo. We had been looking forward to this for nine years (last time we ate here). The burger was very good, though not as good as i remembered, but the fries were outstanding. We found out the business has changed hands. Still a good burger and worth a stop. It's... More
