This is a small burger place in a mall just south of the airport. But it really does have extremely good traditional hamburgers. The atmosphere is better than Anna's, another good locals spot which is south on Highway 11. But the burgers are better at Ultimate.

The flight from HNL was late, so we were really hungry. Ultimate Burger was our savior. Enjoyed the ultimate cheeseburger. The burger is loaded, lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, special sauce. The beef is local, grass fed. Fries are freshly made with a special aioli on the side. OMG, the fries are incredible. And forget adding ketchup -- the aioli is... More

Ultimate Burger is now on our family's list of places to eat at when we visit the Big Island. The quality of the "grass fed beef" burger and the chili soup is amazing. For sure, it's a burger place, you can't afford not to visit when you are on the Big Island.

This is a good option if you want to eat on the cheap. Stopped by here on a whim after coming back from the beach. Staff was friendly and cut our burger in half when they found out we were sharing. Serves local grass fed beef. Good option if you want to dine cheap. Plus- also nearby shopping (Target, Ross,... More

We all enjoyed this place. We went twice. The first time I thought my burger was a little over cooked but the 2nd time it was great. The fries are really good and the sauce served with the fries is nice. The chili was good as well. My 2 gripes were: 1-its hot inside the restaurant and 2-the soda machine... More

With 'organic' and 'local grass fed beef' on the window we decided to give it a try. Horribly disappointing. A small burger (fries are extra) that was expensive and just tasteless. No salt no taste. Just a waste of time. I didn't even finish it and I didn't have fries (because they didn't mention it didn't come with. Their homemade... More

Clean and friendly, but when the girl asks each person ordering, "pink or no pink in the burger?" You'd think they'd get it right... they didn't, and my brother could only eat around the edges of his burger. I showed the girl how pink it was when I self-bussed the table. To her credit she apologized, but no offer to... More
