This was a delicious burger. There are plenty of choices. One thing that would have upped the rating a notch if they provided Wisconsin Cheddar as one of their cheese choices. Great eats.

We just happened on this spot and it was a pleasant surprise. Really thick, juicy burgers cooked perfectly. Be sure to get the fresh pineapple slice on the burger! Everyone there was super friendly too.

Came all the way from Idaho for a sweet burger with strawberry compote. And It was GONE. Had to settle for a pineapple cheeseburger. Still will come back again.

Burgers are best on island. Fries are better then anywhere else. It's more expensive the. Mcdonalds and Burger King but you get what you pay for. If you are looking for a quick bite for the kids and on a budget this is not the place for you. If you want a great burger meal then treat your family to... More

After we land at Kona airport, we have the same routine -- Ultimate Burger for lunch and Target (right across the street) for supplies. The food here is tasty, especially the crispy fries seasoned with thyme and parsley. The burgers are good (love the fresh buns), and we like being able to customize them with pineapple, grilled onions, etc. (for... More

This is our first stop when we get off the plane and head out of the airport. We make a bee line to this place. The burgers are the best! We had been having withdrawals so I finally took the family to Pono Burger in Santa Monica on Monday, Ultimate Burger East.....Heaven! Not as good as UB simply because they... More

Listen, we got to the Big Island and this was the first place we ate. I had the Fish burger, which is basically caught that day. The burger was insane, I went back twice more but got two burgers each time. I think it was the best burger I have ever eaten. My wife had the mushroom sandwich for vegetarians... More

We stumbled upon this place by accident while looking for something else, and what great luck for us! The burgers were so delicious, probably one of the best burgers I've ever had! The french fries and lemonade were also amazing.

One of my favorites on the big island! Usually a first stop! The food is consistently delicious. The fries are a must! Great staff, healthy food, locally grown. Can't beat it!
