Stopped here after a snorkeling adventure on the North Shore and we were starving. Service was a bit slow considering it was a walk up to the counter and order type deal, but the staff was very friendly and helpful. A bit pricey, but not anything out of the ordinary for Hawaii. I got the Cowboy burger which was delicious... More

If you want a bang for your buck then eat at Kahuku Grill! The Burgers are huge and fabulous. I had the Avocado burger and my husband had the cowboy burger. Both excellent choices.

We stopped here after a day beach hopping based on Tripadvisor reviews. You order at a counter and they bring it to you either inside or outside. I got the coconut and garlic shrimp combo. The portion was huge as it came with 3-4 shrimp each, lots of seasoned rice, and salad (with grilled pineapple and avocado). Everything tasted fresh... More

Sunburn pretty much torpedoed the last couple days of our Hawaiian vacation, but rather than waste the time altogether we opted for something easy the last night before flying out. Hadn't been to the North Shore, so we Googled it and came across something called the Kahuku Grill. It had a lot of stars beneath the icon so we gave... More

There is nothing fancy about this place, but the food is absolutely delicious! The burgers and fries were to die for; the coconut shrimp was so great I was in tears. Don't forget to finish off with shaved ice at Wili Willies right next door!

Of all the casual eating experiences waiting for you, skip the roadside stands and shrimp trucks, and go right to Kahuku Grill. I had the coconut shrimp and it was wonderful! The burgers that others ordered were enormous jawbreakers! The workers are very accommodating and friendly. Go when you are not in a hurry. Service is a little slow due... More

Skip all of the shrimp trucks you see on Kam highway and go straight for Kahuku grill! Besides the shrimp being out of this world your meal comes with rice and a delicious salad and you also have the choice between coconut or garlic shrimp. This is a must for any hungry traveller on the north shore of Oahu!

We have done Giovanni's Food Truck, etc. but there's no comparison to this grill! It's set back off the road beside/behind a gas station (near the bank). The garlic shrimp is ridiculously good along with the coconut macadamia nut shrimp. Plus you get rice and salad! And if you husband doesn't like seafood like mine, he can have a burger... More

Kahuku Grill is close to where we were staying in Kahuku, so it was very convenient. I got takeout, but I could see the tables were in a better location than most of the shrimp places in Kahuku. There is another building between them and the road. They have burgers as well as shrimp dishes, and salads. The garlic shrimp... More

The Kahuku Grill was awesome for 4/5 of our family. The macadamia coconut shrimp was delicious. The breading wasn't heavy and it complemented the shrimp perfectly. The fish plate was fresh and flavorful. The burgers were some of the best around--anywhere. The only entree less than awesome was the garlic shrimp. Our issue was that we ate at Giovanni's two...
