Amazing Burgers!

Burgers are awesome! Wait can be long when it"s busy. Pricey. But the burgers and fries and shakes can't be beat! They split the burgers unless you ask them not to. Haven't tried the onion rings.

This was the best tasting burger on the island. I don't remember the last time I felt a little piece of heaven in my mouth. I ordered the local boy with cheddar cheese, bacon and a strawberry shake. Make sure to call your order in because it takes about 20min to cook.

We heard this was the place to go for great burgers. Maybe it WAS, was being the operative word. The good first, the Marion Berry shake was delicious; the burger (Duane's Special) was a definite cut below in and out. The chicken sandwich was worse. The fries were good. There was a very long wait, our advice, skip this place!

For a quick eat, Ono Burger is OK. If you are expecting more than a previously frozen, pre-fab piece of meat, this may not be the place for you. The other ingredients are fresh and the onion rings are exceptional. I will likely try another spot for a hamburger next time I'm on the island.

Good average burger with some unique toppings, but if you live where there is an In n Out burger it's probably not as good, or as quick or as inexpensive. That said it may be the best burger on the island. Wait until you get home and the fresh fish you can to Hawaii for.

The food is great, BUT, Prepare to wait a VERY long time for your order. This establishment take orders over the phone. Even if there are no cars in the parking lot, you will have a very long wait. Their 1st priority is getting the phone orders made and they are way understaffed. We actually visited in August 2013.

My family and I have made several stops to Duane's over the years. We love making this stop and rate it in our top 3 favorite burgers. The service at Duane's is typical of the Kauai vibe - non-rushed to say the least. Helpful hint #1: call ahead! They needed 15 minutes for 4 burgers and onion ring so call... More

We stopped in for dinner burgers on our way back to Princeville and got there two minutes before closing time. I got the Surfer Girl (at least I think that was what it was called) cheeseburger with pineapple and teriyaki. And then tried to eat it in the car without making a mess... They were VERY generous with the cheese,... More

Stopping here has been a tradition since I was a little kid! Their burgers and fries are so amazingly yummy! And their milk shakes make any day better! It's a little pricey but worth it! It's a must if you're heading North!
