20 years on and still remains one of the best burgers you will find anywhere!

I often write lengthy descriptive reviews on places but for Kua Aina it is very, very simple; If you truly love an amazing burger ignore the other offerings on the Island that just don't compare and get yourself to Kua Aina and you will talk about it for years and return whenever you... read more

They were very accommodating for my allergy! The food was freaking great! We know burgers and this is one of the best burgers I've had! Perfectly cooked. Oh and the lettuce and tomato were perfect. That's hard to find! We loved it and will go back again! The only thing is I wish they had a kids menu. My daughter... More

This place came highly recommended by local friends and although a little surprised at the prices, hubby and I were so glad we came. We ordered one 1/2 pound burger and shared it between the two of us. It was so nice of the staff to cut the burger in half and serve the halves on separate plates so it... More

We just arrived in Haleiwa and someone recommended this to us--reminded us of Uneeda Burger in Seattle. Lots of choices--including veg and fish, toppings, basic sides. Husband was very happy!

Very good burgers--juicy and cooked to medium. 1/3 or 1/2 lbs burgers are offered. We ordered 1/2 lbs and split it in half to share. French fries were shoe string style and tend to get soggy if you wait too long to eat--small portion was large enough for two of us. I must say I prefer thicker cut, but that's... More

We stopped here on our North Shore trip and let me say, it was really really good. The French fries were to die for and the burgers were delicious. So many Options. I wish we had more time to come back again, but this is definitely a must do!!! Really good.

I'm not a great burger fan, but when they told me they were famous for the avocado burger I had to try it. It is truly delicious and I would absolutely recommend this place.

Really great burgers! Lots of great combinations, including avocado and pineapple. Plenty of shoestring style fries, too. You do have to wait a bit, but they're making everything fresh, so it's worth it. There’s parking in the back, as well as the front and the area has lots of other shops to see.
