Love the Pineapple Burger. Very ono!

We ran across this place in search of a good burger to satisfy our cravings for one. The pineapple burger fit the bill just beautifully. The food here is fresh and the staff friendly. If you're looking for a great local burger on the North Shore this place is a winner.

We came here 7-8 years ago and found ourselves back this year for a great burger. Its pricey, but you get either a quarter pound or a third pound burger. Many options to choose from and they also have great skinny fries. Lunch for the four of us was $50, and that's on par with anywhere else on the island.... More

It's like nobody puts sprouts on sandwiches anymore..so sad. But not Kua Aina, they rocked with the sprouts and crispy bacon in my tuna salad sandwich from heaven.

A great lunch spot in Hale'iwa. When you find a place the locals are buying lunch, you know you are choosing correctly. Everything is fresh, well put together and they have excellent service. i had the tuna with avocado, my wife had the fish sandwich, and my kids had french fries, and grilled cheese.

I enjoyed a delicious teriyaki chicken sandwich at Kua Aina in beautiful Haleiwa today. Great little place, friendly staff, plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Loved the grilled onion on my sandwich!

My family got the burgers, my husband was dying for one. I had to try to remember what I even had because nothing stood out for me here. I got the BLT, which was okay. This was a burger place, so I wasn't expecting outstanding. This place was not outstanding. Friendly kids behind the counter though!

One of the best burgers I have ever had. We were trying all the local food shops and this was the best by far. I wish there was a Kua Aina in Georgia.

Average burger for slightly above average price. Cute town and shopping area to walk around in after being at the North Shore all day.

I've been going to Kua Aina sandwich shop for ten years and have never had a bad burger. My favorite is the Avocado Burger with an order of fries. The shop in Haleiwa is the greatest. Don't miss it if you're on that side of the Island.

These folks do burgers the right way - I opted for 1/3 pounder with Ortega pepper plus some thick cut tomato & onion slathered with a bit of mayo and some crisp lettuce - it works! The carrot wedge is a nice touch and a side of fries is a must. One word of caution: be prepared to wait after... More
