Kauai Beef, and local flair

Kauai beef is expense and in short supply so costs are higher than a mainland burger, and the patties are small -- that being said, the burgers are good, fries too. Great collection of t-shirts and such. Expect a line, and a local experience worth having.

We frequent Bubba with some regularity when in Kauai. Burgers are above average but this trip many in our group felt the quality of the food at the Hanalai restaurant was below that of the Kapaa restaurant.

We visited this little place in March 2015 when my husband and I went to Kawai for a much belated honeymoon. We went on the recommendation of some friends and they had a raved about the burgers there. All the reviews I read were pretty positive so we thought we would give it a try one afternoon. There wasn't any... More

We decided to try Bubba's on a rainy Wednesday evening. It's a little burger place with two or three picnic-type tables and five or so stools at a dining bar. You place your order in the front and then they call your name when your order is ready. The three ladies that staff the place are friendly and courteous. We... More

we went to Bubba Burgers several times during our vacation and really loved it. The burgers are unique and in our opinion not pricey. Don't make the mistake and order lettuce and tomato - do it their style. The relish onion pineapple combo works fantastic.

it was a good burger. Need to get at least a double to fill you up. The fries and onion rings were good too. Nothing outstanding, but a good burger and for once, you can get a meal for a reasonable price in Hawaii.

Okay , so this is a popular place with a good tasting little burger , but they should have more kitchen staff to accommodate the long lines . Onion Rings are yummy .

For the money... you don't get a lot. Our bill was $30. The milkshakes were small, the burgers were small, and the fries were not that good. Honestly, I would have rather had Mcdonalds. At least there would be value. I was not impressed one bit, and I'm not that picky. Felt a waste of money...

Everyone told us to visit Bubbas burgers and we all really enjoyed them. I do think that they are very expensive for the burger though.
