Great stop for authentic Aloha.

The burgers, onion rings and shakes were great! The service was also very friendly. We took our order to go, but they also had seating in the shade, and the island chickens were an added bonus. The prices were fair.

This place got good reviews on Yelp, so we decided to stop here for lunch on our way to the north shore. Greasy, awful burgers AND we had to wait over 30 minutes for them to come out! At a sit-down restaurant, that might be OK, but this is a fast food burger shack! Slow food burger shack, is more... More

This place was recommended to us by a local for a quick and delicious meal. It's obviously very popular by the locals based on the steady flow of traffic. Great, inexpensive meal if you love a burger and fries!

The food here is so ono! I have never had a bad meal at Duane's. Food is made-to-order, so it takes a while to get your order, but it's worth the wait! The shakes are particularly delicious, so don't skimp on calories. Make sure you get one! The burgers are fantastic -- particularly the ones with teriyaki sauce -- and... More

It doesn't look like much from the outside, in fact we drove by several times without realizing it was there. But once we saw it and stopped it was worth the wait!!! Their Local Girl and Local Boy burgers were delicious and the Chocolate and Strawberry shakes were the creamiest shakes I've ever had! All out door seating. Walk up... More

The menu is sizable the BURGERS ARE THE ABSOLUTE BEST! The Onion Rings are beyond exceptional. Don't let the building image turn you away! This is quite possibly one of the BEST STOPS you will make while in Kauai!

A local resident told me "If I wanted the best burger on the island" to come here. Lots of choices on your burgers. Milkshakes and fries are available too. Portions and prices are good. Roosters and chickens provide the entertainment if you stay and sit on the picnic tables. This is an old fashioned, side of the road burger joint.

We didn't go to Kauai for their burgers but we needed to fill our burger craving and we did find a good one. Duane's is a small place tucked off on the side of the highway. Glad we stopped. Went with Duane's special which had thousand island, grilled onions, sprouts pickles and cheese. Burger was pretty stacked and very tasty.... More

Ono burgers are a wonderful slice of old time burger joints, you can smell the yummieness wafting across the highway. You can order to go or hang out under the palms...I like going to a beach. Great burgers! Please remember to pack all your trash and tread lightly on Kauai
