Burger Place in Hanalie

Great fast food burgers prepared while you wait outside the restaurant. They are much better than the run of the mill fast food burger joints. French fries and onion rings cost extra. You order on one side, pick up on the other side of the restaurant and eat outside on one of the picnic tables.

We stopped in Bubba Burgers while driving through Hanalei recently. When we arrived, there were only a couple of people in line, so we didn't really have to wait. But when we were eating, I noticed that the line was very long. The burgers are good, but there's nothing about them that really puts them into another category. The best... More

I liked that the burgers are good eating and you can choose how you want them fixed up. Try the teriyaki burger and add pineapple. The french fries are excellent tasting, as are the onion rings. Lines may be a little long but not bad when you are standing in a beautiful spot like Hanalei.

Ok Im not a burger person, at all. But i have to say these grass fed beef burgers are pretty darn good. love looking at all the old photos of Bubba memorabilia! The shakes are too die for on a hot day! A meal in themselves! Go to Bubbas, its part of Kauai!

The onion rings are awesome, the dogs are good and the burgers are pretty good. It's fun to look at the pictures of celebrities that have been there.

Not sure Bubba's is worth all the hype that it gets on the island. A good burger a step above fast food.

This is not so much a restaurant but a small building where you can get great hamburgers. If you are on the north shore of Kauai you must try a Bubba Burger in Hanalei at least once. It is a very popular spot and more likely than not you will go back another time.

Food in Kauai is very expensive - even hamburgers. Bubba Burgers gives you a lot of value for the price.

We had the double burgers and fries. Cooked well and consistent. Fries were good as well. Order was correct as my husband is picky about condiments on his food.

As others have mentioned, the beef patties are thinner than expected, but they are tasty and served hot. We had the teriyaki burgers and the onion rings. Both were great. Nice but small, open air seating outside. Would definitely go back.
