Loved the Burgers!

Marcus from Uncle Bryan's surf school said we had to try the burgers at Kua Aina. My son eats many burgers and has become somewhat of an expert. We all said these were some of the best burgers we have ever had. The fries were good too. We enjoyed them so much we ate there a second time which... read more

Food was pretty good and a lot better than the service. We ordered some burgers with fries and the food was consistently good just as at the town location. However, the service was pretty poor. The counter help was very slow moving and didn't seem at all cheerful or excited to be there. Food for 4 took about 20+ minutes.

Each time we go to North Shore, we stop here for lunch. I love their burgers! This time, I tried pineapple burger which was fantastic! Love their shoestring fries. Everything tastes fresh and delicious.

I will definitely crave these fries in the middle of the night from time to time, they were that good. Little messy delicious morsels. The burgers were high quality and HUGE. This was sooo worth the money spent here - about $9 a burger (not including the fries).

Ask for grilled onions and a side of fries. Fresh and local and very delicious. Good luck fitting these burgers in your mouth. note: the kiddie burger is too small for an adult.

This is the only "chain" restaurant bar went to, while we were in Hawaii (if you can call three locations a chain). We were happy that we did. Known for fresh made sandwiches, we tried several and thoroughly enjoyed them all. Food is served in small baskets, and a fresh carrot stick, with a side of thick slices of fresh... More

And really, really, REALLY busy! There's been a long queue since we walked in, and for good reason. The burgers and fries are really good. Pineapple burgers, bacon, avocado....all fantastic! You can't go wrong with this place but don't be in a rush!!!
