big island revealed recommends this place as best for burgers, but be aware that they probably mean: for fast food burgers! Even Harbor House, which is a lot more famous for its beer than for its food, serves a lot better burgers.

Hamburger was juicy with a good smoky flavor. The chili was tasty and full of beef. In a strip mall with lots of parking for ease.

They have these high prices because they are proud of their local grass fed beef but the 1/3 lb burger patties are so small that the buns are too big and you get alot of bites of bread with the one small lettuce leaf.... You can go to other local restaurants who serve the same beef and the patties are... More

Terrific burgers here. The meat patty (organic island beef) was exceptionally and unusually rich, like wagyu beef, and the combination with a slice of pineapple (one of many options, every burger is custom-built per customer specificaitons) was an eye-opener. One bite and you know that yes, maybe this is fast food because it's super casual, small, eat-in-or-take-out food with a... More

These burgers are delicious and use grass-fed Hawaiian beef. Yum. Kind of a fast-food joint in the strip mall across from Target, so no ambiance, but the food makes up for it. Great fries, too.

Reminds me of SmashBurger; very juicy and tasty. The 2x2 cheeseburger with grilled onions, mushrooms, and pepperjack cheese really hit the spot.

I have been here many times and I have to say they serve one of the best burgers I have ever had. Sure they are a bit on the high side in price, but if you are more concerned about that you have another chain joint across the street that's cheaper, but the burgers are way apart in quality and...

There is nothing fantastic about Ultimate Burger. It's just an overpriced burger; I'd rather have Red Robin.

Ultimate burger uses only local grass fed beef and local grown vegetables,the result is hands down one of the best tasting burgers around!! Fast, friendly service is a plus as well. If your in Kona stop by and check them out you wont be disappointed!!
