Great food and fun

It was worth the wait! It's a island favorite! We had the burgers and onion rings, both done well. The ambience was great in the small tourist town of Hannelei on Kauai's north shore. Mostly outdoor eating. Simple.

We stopped for burgers on the way back from hiking. They were so good. Get the mustard and onions on the burger. My son loved the corn dog. Our friend got the Double Slopper, which is a great choice if you are hungry and like chili! It's a fun place with great "personality ". Shave ice and coffee are right... More

Of all the wonderful places to eat we chose this one. So sorry we did! Very expensive and if you want lettuce and tomatoes it will cost you extra! Everything is a la carte. I think a "Mc burger" is tastier! The burger was very disappointing - very small and sad. We looked at eachother and wondered why we ate... More

We had the best burgers here! The teryaki burger with pineapple was the best burger I've ever had! Prices were good too. We went back twice - would've gone three times but the line was too long the third day. Worth a visit!

It is a burger place... I am sure some people like it, but it was not for my taste. I prefer more vegetables

we adored the signs and jokes they posted against the big burger places. admittedly, their burgers taste better--NO WAY TO ARGUE THIS POINT. Go in, order, sit and read the walls, relax and look at pictures while you await ur food. When did takeout become the only way to eat? If you ask me, i'm 47, take out is over... More

We decided to try Bubba's after a flight attendant recommended Bubba's as the "best" burger on the Island, a must do stop. He was correct regarding location and crowds (long lines), but that's where the hype ends. Service is slow, prices on the high side for a rather "small" size burger, nothing bubba in regards to size. Rather bland and... More

We went into Hanalei and there were great little shops. In looking for a place to eat, we stopped at Bubba's and it was very good. Try the burger Bubba's way with relish.

There were no complaints about the burgers and the fresh, locally caught ahi burger was a hit. The chili fries were tasty too. No complaints for a quick and fairly inexpensive place to dine, especially with teens.

Quirky place with amusing signs and pictures of famous people who visited. Food was good . Seems to be efficient and popular by the crowds of customers
