Pricey for Burgers

This was a nice little restaurant, but pretty expensive for burgers. The staff was friendly. would not advise going out of your way to visit this restaurant.

We wish we had not had our last meal of Kauai here. Breakfast at Tropical Burger was pricey & greasy. The coffee for $2.50 is bottomless but the omelets were served with a lot of grease/oil. Even though the hashbrowns were toasty brown, they were not crisp. My husband wanted to just quit eating here & get a Starbucks breakfast... More

Frozen burgers and frozen fries? You've got to be kidding me! "Burgers" is in the name of he restaurant! This should be a speciality. I ordered mine medium and I got a thawed patty that was burnt on they upside and raw inside. Gross. The fries were simply grease steaks. Borderline inedible. They had a lot of options for toppings,... More

Not fancy but delicious. Don't go here looking for a fufu type setting - it is true island style. Lacks enough seating but there are benches nearby.

My husband and I enjoyed this place so much that we went back a second time during our short visit to Kauai. The prices were reasonable, and our waitress was delightful -- always smiling and polite. We sat on the open-air porch, hummed along with the island music playing in the background, and watched an occasional chicken strut by. The... More

We came here during the weird time between lunch and dinner. They allowed us to order off the dinner menu, which was nice, although we did opt for burgers. I can't remember the name of the burger I had, but I would eat it again! The fruit salsa, which I ordered on the side as I wasn't feeling too adventurous,... More

If you like a place that has basic fare, go there. I ordered the Teryaki Chicken sandwich, my wife the Mahi Mahi salad and the kids had burgers. Other than the salad the rest of the items were no better than what you can get elsewhere. The Mahi Mahi was solid (according to my wife) but this is a Hawaii... More

This place wasn't exceptional but it was good. Oddly they "ran out" of Mai Tai's but could still make a Blue Hawaiian. The service fine but not exceptional.

Service here was fine but the burgers were really bad and the soft drinks are watered down and insipid. Disappointing for a burger place!

We had lunch here after playing 9 holes of golf. Nice to relax and eat outdoors. My BLT with bacon was delicious. Nice for a quick sit down place.
