Duane's was recommended by an employee at a local attraction. We stopped for lunch and had an average meal. The burgers were just okay and the fries were a little soggy. The teriyaki burger was better than average but not spectacular. I would eat there again if I was in the area and hungry but wouldn't make a special trip.

The burgers live up to their reputation on the island as the best. They are generous with the toppings and the burgers are charred to perfection. We had Duane's special and the Local Girl. The marionberry milk shake was also super-tasty. The rumor is true that you will wait a long time at this place even if it doesn't look... More

Friendly staff, good burgers, fries and onion rings. Although I lost my appetite when the chef came out in a filthy apron. Looks exactly the same after stopping by 20 years ago. Great if you are driving by, but definitely wouldn't drive from the south end for a burger here. Good but had better.

I had the benefit of literally staying 100 feet from Duane's Ono Char-Burger. I came back after a long days trip to Waimea canyon and was starving after all the hikes I had done. I ordered Duane's special (with pickles, sprouts, onions, cheese, and other goodness) with a side of fries.... lets just say I was in heaven!!! The burgers... More

This review may not be for the faint of heart...I can't honestly tell you how the food tastes. I went in and ordered while my wife stayed in the car. When I got back to the car, my wife told me not to touch the food until I let her know if a big guy with a beard and a... More

We've been coming to Kauai for about 20 years & have eaten at Duane's each time. With all the changes over the years, interior improvements, new employees, etc. the taste,quality, value & service is constantly ONO! Our old t-shirts from the '90's are probably collectors items by now, but the Duane's experience is priceless! Big tip- call ahead to skip... More

We stopped by about a half hour before close after a long day and took burgers and shrimp to go. The ladies were very friendly, the food was tasty, and it was just my kind of place- nothing fancy, nothing snobby, just good food. Great!

If you drive too fast you may miss it but turnaround!! This was the best burger I have ever had! My husband and I highly recommend the Island Girl and the Island Boy!

Great small roadside burger joint. Hot, fresh burgers and fried goodies. Great selection of different burgers. As long as you are good with sitting outside with the chickens, this is your kind of place.

Outdoor dining, closes early, teriyaki chicken tastier than low fat burgers, more expensive than burger king or mcd's.
