We went here because we wanted to try the local beef and were drawn to the "local Kauai beef served here" signs. Service was good and prices were ok. 2 people in our party wanted chili and were expecting chili packed with Kauai beef, instead it was canned chili, probably Hormel....dog foodish. I... read more

We went here for lunch today. Burgers were greasy but good. My partner's was not cooked well but the staff happily fixed it. I had a side of onion rings for $5 and only got 5 rings...so basically $1 per ring. If they gave you more fries or rings I would probably rate this higher but otherwise I'd just say... More

This place's big claim to fame is that they won't sell you a hamburger that costs less than a can of dog food. They say they use all Kauai-grown grassfed beef but the burger is so greasy I couldn't tell. Don't go out of your way to eat here, but it's okay if you're in the area and hungry.

Love the simple burger wrapped in paper the way they used to be. With just the right toppings. Price is amazing and you can't be the view for a burger joint. You must try Bubba's, the best one is in Kapaa. Good milkshakes

I get the feeling that this is one of those "must haves" but isn't actually that great. Like The Varsity in Atlanta (although Bubba's is way better). There are a few locations and multiple people told us we should go. It was alright but nothing so great that I'd recommend it. I got the Koloa burger and was surprised how... More

We were in Kaui for four days and two of our meals where here. The double bubba burger is fantastic. My boyfriend and I both ate the double bubba and fries, and we couldn't get enough. Service was great, too. Very friendly people with smiley faces. We will be back!

Bubbas Burgers in Kapaa was so good. It is your basic burger joint with a nice spin on their burgers. You can always tell how good a place is by the line you see every time you go by. Even in the rain. Service was fast, food was delicious.

i don't get it. $8 for a triple burger that only has mayo and onions (lettuce and tomato cost a dollar more!) is way too much. I ordered the triple because the single I'd gotten the day before left me completely unsatisfied. Onion rings are a whopping $5 for 6 rings and they charge .50 for ranch dressing! In my... More

First-class burgers: local Kauai grass-fed beef and good buns. Grilled to order and hot when you get it, no heat-lamp nonsense for food that sits around. Take their advice and do not order it with lettuce and tomato for $1 extra -- but do remember they come with onions, so specify if you don't want them. Reasonably priced sodas and... More

Stopped for lunch and were surprised with the reasonable prices. The burgers, French fries, and onion rings were great. The service was great. If you go for lunch, expect it to be busy.
