The preparation of the burger (assuming the meat is good quality) is what really determines a burger's taste. We ordered ours medium rare, since they are supposedly cooked to order. What we got were grilled, dried out and tasteless meat patties. My burger was supposed to be a Nui Nui or double patty (a half pound) with Bleu Cheese. The... More

The burgers were ok. They were big, but it wasn't wow. I tried it and that's that. I'd eat there again, but only if I'm in the area.

We came here on a tip from a local that the teriyaki burger was great. She wasn't lying. I had the teri burger served with lettuce, tomato, and teriyaki sauce in the bun and cut in half. If you order fries they will give you teriyaki sauce and mayo in a cup. Dipping the fries in teri/mayo sauce was just... More

Hard to beat their burgers. They are perfectly cooked with a perfectly toasted bun. A very long wait, however. More than 30 minutes. Many folks call in the orders ahead. We loved the fries. The onion rings were quite mild.

We always make it a point to eat here each time we are on the island. The food is great. If there is a crowd you may find yourself eating on a table in the sun, but otherwise a great place to stop and grab a burger.

Oh my husband and I visited Kauai Island back in Novermber of 2013 and we took a tour of Kauai Island with a tourist named Domi. He recommended this burger place for us, we definitely tried other places to get just a burger for lunch and boy we couldn't find a spot. When he recommended this to us! Oh my... More

I've been here twice and twice I have had a happy tummy afterwards. I went with a mushroom with Swiss and Teri. Milkshakes are also the bomb, and really good size too. Definitely better than your average burger, and throwing the Teri on there gives you that island touch.

We stopped here after receiving Lomi Lomi massages and it was perfect. The burger options are creative and delicious! My husband had the one with pineapple and teriyaki sauce. I had the one with avocado and cheddar. The milk shake and Aloha Special were terrific. Tip: If some Hawaiian rum accidentally fell into your Aloha Special, you are really in... More

I kept hearing how "amazing" this place was prior to our trip, so I was a bit disappointed, but the burgers are good. They have a good selection of unique burgers - things like teryaki, pineapple burgers, etc. - that are very good but quite expensive at about $8 each. They've also got a good selection of milkshakes, fries and... More

Duane's has legitimately good burgers and fries. It's a no-nonsense business where you order what you want and get out of the way. Definitely worth the stop!
