Great Avacado burger

This restaurant was highly recommended by a friend that use to live in Hawaii. It lived up to all the hype! They opened at 11 . We were a little early but right at 11 they opened their doors and actually had two people taking orders. The food came in a very reasonable time frame. I swear there was... read more

Busy place with a fun décor/atmosphere. The burgers were just ok. Seemed to be just (a relatively small) patty that had little to no seasoning on a bun that was too large for the patty. Fries were a big disappointment - were more like cold shoestring potatoes vs real French fries. Ok food but not a place I would rush... More

i ordered a burger on whole wheat thinking I was getting a whole wheat bun. What I got was a burger on toasted whole wheat sliced bread. When I assembled the sandwich with the lettuce, tomato and ketchup it really was not that bad. The fries are good there too. At lunch time you might have to wait a little... More

The wait is long and you may have trouble getting a seat at lunchtime. Delicious BLT with a whole avocado. Mahi-mahi salad was also excellent. mmm so good!

I had their burgers in Japan all the time and finally had the chance to try the original ones here. Needless to say, it was amazing! The beef was juicy and full of flavors. I have realized why this place has opened up a chain in Japan. The one that I always get is the Avocado Burger. I believe this... More

It was disgusting. I have had ordered a salad and a Mahi-Mahi sandwich. The salad wasn't fresh and the sandwich was just OK. But the place was very dirty and the kitchen was being cleaned at the same time that our snacks was being prepared. The restroom was dirty too. I really have other point of view than Trip Advisor...

Best burger I have ever had. I have eaten a lot of burgers in my life but this one is a winner. And I was amazed at how much avocado they actually give you. If you love burgers this is definitely worth going to!! I wish they opened one in Australia.

If you are cruising about on the north shore of Oahu and looking for a great sandwich, then look no further. This place came highly recommended by folks on the island as a great place for a sandwich and they were not mistaken. It was a bit difficult to find owing to it being raining and the sign was covered... More

We ate there at least twice in our stay there. The food was very, very good. Pineapple burger, Mahi Ortega Swiss Sandwich and of course the good old bacon cheeseburger were all consumed by this hungry family. It takes a while for the food to be ready, but it is worth the wait.
