Best veggie burger

They make a taro burger with the special spicy sauce on it. Delicious! Thin fries that were cooked just right. There's an upstairs balcony you can eat at over looking the bay. I like to take my food and sit in the grassy area by the bay.

Wanted a quick yet satisfying breakfast, I was not disappointed.. I was craving Portuguese sausage, eggs and rice.. this hit the spot.. came back for burgers before we left for the airport. The burgers were Soooo tastey.. not at all dry.. the fries were enough to share between 2 people... reasonably priced as well..

We ate here more than once, the first time we had burgers and a loco moco. The second time we went back for shave ice, which was excellent and so happy to have it close to the Marriott where we were staying. Service was quick, food was good, there is outside seating and also upstairs covered seating as well. We... More

We came for some burgers in the later afternoon. One of the reasons for choosing this place above the more crowded ones nearby was because they had ample free parking. This after we had been chased away by a nasty parking attendant from one of the others. Public presentation matters. If there is rudeness before one gets in the door,... More

We had the kalapaki breakfast: portuguese sausage, eggs and rice. It was really good. The lady gave us a slice of pineapple with it which was sweet. Yummy breakfast and very affordable too. Location is about 5 minutes from the airport which was convenient.

Tasty burgers made of local Kauai beef. Spouse enjoyed the Volcano burger, and I the Bleu Cheese burger, along with taro fries (dense root that makes poi). It's friendly counter service. They have booths and counters on the second story with a nice view of Kalapaki Beach surfers and sometimes an ocean breeze. It's close to the pickup-dropoff point for... More

Weather you want breakfast, lunch or dinner for yourself or the family, this little gem will not disappoint!! They cook to order the freshest fish and burgers - all served on large sesame buns - their G sauce is fantastic as well as their aoli sauces. Must add on fries or taro fries which are very popular. The cooks turn... More

We stayed at the Marriott and found the Kalapaki Beach Hut was a great breakfast and lunch alternative to the hotel. Breakfast was wonderful, as were the burgers, especially the Kauai Burger! The staff was very friendly, the food took a long time to come but that was because everything was cooked to order, there was a limited number of... More

Kalapaki beach hut is a great place for burgers! They have juicy burgers, fast service, delicious fries, and refreshing drinks. And make sure to check out the shave ice place next door! A friend recommended we stop here for great burgers. We did and it was so good we stopped back on the way to the airport for more burgers....at... More
