Oh, yum! But grab a few extra napkins...

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...

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!

If you look up hole in the wall you might get a picture of this place. My family and I have been coming to Kauai for over 20 years and every visit requires at least one trip to Duanes. It has never failed us. We can only rate the burgers because that is all we ever have. My wife always... More

Amazing burgers with a Hawaiian touch. We all ordered the local boy and all 6 of us loved it! We'll definitely come here again on our next trip.

Don't let some of the negative recent reviews fool you... this is still the BEST burger on the island! We last visited Kauai and Duane's Ono Char-Burger four years ago and it was SO good back then. We were dismayed to read some of the reviews that said Duane's had lost it's "mojo" over the last few years. However, we... More

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
