Better than Bubba's

Typical little local burger joint with quality food and not the wait you see at Bubba's. Not right in town so easier parking.

We read the good reviews but were so hungry that we ignored the warnings about the long wait. We waited 40 minutes for dry burgers. During our wait I saw the older woman cashier rummage through the trash with her bare hands as she pulled out cardboard boxes. She also picked up the used trays and baskets. I then noticed... More

Good burger, but know that if you are a white haole tourist, you are placed at the bottom of the queue. I don't have a problem with that philosophy, as the regulars pay the bills, but know that locals will order after you and receive their orders before you do. The solution is to call in your order.

My husband and I hamburger snobs, we freely admit this. You will never see a big mac pass these lips. On our recent stay we were really craving a burger but again, being hamburger snobs were a little picky about where to go. As luck would have it we were staying just up the road from the Ono Burger and... More

This should be our top stop for burgers! They are really good as are the french fries. Simple meal but top notch on flavor!

I ordered and got mine relatively quickly so my husband decided to get one two…35 minutes later, it arrived. So, the burgers are awesome, tasty, and affordable. I'd give them five stars if it wasn't for that wait. But we did come a few days later and only waited 15 minutes, not bad. I've heard the locals call in their... More

We drove here from Kapaa to have lunch. The burgers and great and the fries with the seasoning salt are good too. They have soft drinks or you can go next door to grab a beer. There is only outdoor seating and the roosters will want to join you. Show up in your swim suit, nobody cares.

You can get a better burger and fries at any of the decent hotels on the island. Ono's and Bubba's are basically a thin patty that you'd get at McD's... Ono's is just smart enough to cook it on a flat top... Its not "fast", the fries are OK, but the oil needs to be changed more often... Try the... More

We've been meaning to stop by here for years and were so glad we tried it on our last visit! It's definitely one of a kind!! We had our exchange daughter and her family with us and her little ones enjoyed seeing the roosters, hens and chickens that run around the picnic table area. We didn't have much of a... More

After trying and being disappointed with Bubbas Burgers, locals said to try Duane's. Perhaps my expectations are a bit high, perhaps I like a different kind of burger (I don't think In and Out burger is Amazing, like so many people do). The burgers were good, just not fabulous. I had the Teri burger. Onion rings were good too. If... More
