Good Burger!

They use only Kauai grass fed beef and they have their own way of making burgers. The teriyaki burger was delicious with a side of onion rings. The only downside is that they don't really have a big menu with many things to choose from.

Food is very greasy and mediocre. Burgers were OK, the onion rings were very disappointing. I ate there once when in a hurry and didn't return. Good place for burgers and beer, probably. There are several locations of Bubba's on Kauai. This is the one closest to where I was staying. Parking can be a problem.

It's almost as good as in N out. Great price point for the basic burger at $4 is excellent value for money. Loved the shakes as well. The perfect after surf snack.

They have a saying above the kitchen that reads "Don't eat a burger that costs less than a can of dog food", or something like that. The more I think about it, the more I agree! This place was awesome. Fun atmosphere, very Hawaiian with laid-back, friendly service. The only thing serious about this place is the burgers. And the... More

Stopped here for a quick lunch on our way to Hanalei. I had the single, my husband had the double - excellent burger with fresh Kauai beef. Not too greasy and very tasty! There are many locations on the island to try, even if you aren't in Kapaa. Definitely worth a try, especially if you are craving a burger.

We love Bubba Burgers. We have visited the one in Hanalei and we saw that Kapaa had one also so we had to stop in. The one in Kapaa has more room and parking. You can even park on the street which is convenient. When you stop in make sure you look at the pictures on the walls and you... More

Bubba's burgers never disappoints!! Not only do you have a fantastic view of the pacific from their deck but the food is amazing! Definitely have the burgers "Bubba style" as recommended - we had double burgers and fries that were cooked perfectly. They are quick and friendly - so it there is a line, no worries, you'll be enjoying your... More

My daughter loved her cheeseburger. It was kind of small but good. We went to the store in Hanalei. the rest of us ate across the street in a Hawaiian restaurant which I can't remember the name but it was not good. we ended up throwing half of the meat away I wish I remember the name so you don't...

Bubba's seemed to be everywhere on Kauai. We ate at Hanalei location. Greasy tasty burgers with greasy fries. Perhaps it is the mystique of a cheap burger on Kauai, yet it was still expensive for the nutrition and taste one is getting. It was Hanalei and as we ate on the grass in the lovely setting and smells of the... More
