If you find yourself in Kauai, in search of a tasty burger, and aren't opposed to dining outdoors with the wild chickens... Duane's Ono-Char Burger cannot be beat. Order the old fashioned burger, fries, and a coke. You won't be disappointed.

We stayed just a few minutes away from here and we were very excited to try it out. The food was great and better than expected. Portions were a bit on the small side but that didnt take away from the deliciousness of our meal. My wife even saw a lizard by where we sat as well as the usual... More

We stayed in Anahola, and I was really looking forward to trying Duane's. Not saying I wouldn't eat there again, but if you're willing to drive an extra 10 minutes into Kapaa, you'll have much better options

You need to check the verbiage in your menu on TripAdvisors unless the hamburgers have gotten a lot bigger since I last visited your establishment. I think you mean that all burgers are 1/4 lb not 14 lbs. By the way your char-burgers are excellent!

A shack off the highway in Anahola - we go at least once during every visit to Kauai. Wonderful burgers and you eat among the chickens. Clearly a local favorite. Be prepared to wait though - on Hawaii time! About 45 minutes for order to come up.

the burger was absolutely nothing special. Not bad by any means, just small and unremarkable. One par with In and Out burgers. The fries were super good. We had our own water to drink and our bill was $20. Good place to stop if you're hungry before or after the beach or as you're driving on Highway 56. I'd eat... More

Duane's Ono burger makes a great burger, have to go at least once when we visit Kauai (this was our 7th trip). takes a little bit of time, but well worth the wait.

Great burgers! I got the "Local Girl", which has Teriyaki and pineapple. I love how the burgers are cut in half and also have wrappers so that they aren't as messy. The seasoning for the French fries was great too! This is an excellent local burger joint.

I ate here based on a recommendation in a guide book but was disappointed. There are a few outside tables but they were covered in chicken droppings. The staff at the window seemed a little gruff when taking my order and the food was not really good. The burger had a thin pattie and didn't have a lot of flavor.... More

It’s a Road Side Burger Joint. But if you are craving a burger, this is the Absolute Best Place to stop on the Island.
