Now that I am retired and traveling a lot more I am discovering just how spoiled I have become. Growing up in Southern California the base that all other burgers are judged by is N-IN-OUT Burgers. A hard act to follow indeed. It is a given that most everything is much more expensive in Hawaii than the mainland. So price... More

Hamburger was not bad but forget the $4.75 shakes! If you like foamy warm tasting ones, then these are for you. If you like thick, cold shakes then go spend your money at another joint.

I know the sign says they refuse to make burgers for less than the cost of dog food (strategically placed next to the famous symbol from the world's most recognised fast food burger outlet) but these burgers actually tasted like the standard fast food kind you'd find anywhere. We were expecting an establishment which has operated for decades and stayed... More

With all the food to experience and spend vacation dollars, you shouldn't crowd your "must-have" list with Bubba's. If you're just craving a delicious burger, go for it. You won't be disappointed. Even with short lines, service is slow, so give yourself plenty of time. Cost averaged out to $10 pp (even with two kids). Their frings allow you to... More

Bubba's was recommended to my husband and I by an elderly couple in the San Francisco airport who were celebrating their "26th" Honeymoon to Kauai, HI this year. They told us that the first place we needed to eat was Bubba's and that we wouldn't be disappointed! They were RIGHT! What a great atmosphere and fun little place to check... More

Great hamburger and they are right - try it their way. Delicious, made fresh and top ingredients. I was a skeptic, but they do have great food.

My husband and I ate here for lunch one day! Man, their burgers and Caesar salad were great!! We wolfed them down!! A small wait on the food, but the scenery while waiting was awesome!! This was the second time I've been here, it was just as good as last time, very consistent. Kudos to the wait staff ; )

At least one person in the family always eats at Bubbas while visiting Hanalei. As usual the line was long and the wait for our order was long but we always forget all that when we finally sit down to eat our Bubbas double burger made with Kauai raised grass fed beef. Although the fries have changed from other visits,... More

I was psyched to go here but the burgers weren't anything special. And I love onion but they use WAY too much. The only thing I recommend would be the Chile Rice. No onion though.. Or tell them to use very little. The area is nice but the line was too long for not-so-awesome food.
