If you looking for a nice sit down but fairly quick meal. It's like fast food but not. Get an extra order of carats. Awesome, sweet n crunchy. A very local feel but NUFF tourists in this joint too. Nice mix of locals, beach going familys surfers and haoles. Get in there and enjoy some turkey sandwich carats and shoestring... More

Okay..... They have good bURGErS. What really sucks more than anything is that you cannot take your associates there because you won't get credit for it on YOUR COMPANY AMERICAN EXPRESS. You can't have your family pay for it cause you can't use your trust fund credit card. Forget credit cards. In today's day and age.....PLEASE!!!!!

The burger was good, especially with the perfectly ripe half of avocado on top. They charge for every additional topping, so it can add up fast. We were there for a late-ish dinner on a Monday, so no long lines.

Having grown up on the North Shore, I've gone to Kua Aina when they were down the street in an old hole in the wall. Always enjoyed their burgers. I try to steer clear of the now touristy area of Haleiwa since it can be a pain to get through on Kam Hwy. Anyways, me and a friend shared a... More

I really like this place! There are lots of different style burgers. I had the ahi tuna burger. It was cooked more than I would have liked so that's why I'm docking off a star. The fries are delicious. Other people in our group had salad and the greens looked nice and fresh. No complaints there. There is ample seating... More

Don't worry about missing this place...while the service was good and the seating was nice outside, the food wasn't even as good as In-and-Out

My husband grew up in town and had memories of this place being stellar. We mentioned to our kayak guide that we were headed there and he said we should go to Seven Brothers or Ted's. We should have listened. We waited 50 minutes from standing in line to getting our burgers. They do charge for "all of the extras"... More

Burgers were hands down one of the best we've ever had. Seemed to be frequented by the locals too which is usually a good sign. Go there today!

They make a stink about the burgers here...as if they are the best thing since fried rice. Well, if you like a burger that was taken from a bag, tossed on a grill 10 seconds and flipped for another 10, well then this is the place. They charge you for EVERYTHING including a pickle. just unreal. lines long, food yuck.... More
