Simple, satisfying, delicious, hits the spot

Came here for lunch today soon after arrival to Kona. I had the cheeseburger and my husband ordered the Ono burger. Given we were so hungry, we devoured it in minutes. We also ordered a side of fries which we shared. Would definitely come here again to this no frills restaurant for satisfying food.

According to our receipt, we completed our order at 8:10pm. It was 8:55 when I began writing this review. We were hoping to sit down and enjoy our burgers at the restaurant with air conditioning. The moment we walked in the door that thought disappeared as it was pretty warm and definitely no A/C and so we decided to get... More

We've been here twice, two years apart. The first time, one bite and we knew it was the best burger on the planet. That memory stuck until the second visit. Although really good, something undefinable had changed. Still well worth a stop in a town with few choices. Good value, fresh, clean, friendly.

This was my third year coming here for a burger while on the Big Island. Every time I leave satisfied. This time we came after a very disappointing experience at another burger place on the island seeking burger redemption. A couple of cheeseburgers with the caramelized onion add-on and some fries and we were golden. They use locally sourced ingredients,... More

My husband and I grind our beef at home for burgers so we have high standards for our hamburgers and these did not disappoint. Our first visit we had an ahi sandwich and a double burger with cheese. We couldn't decide which would be better so we each had a half. The ahi was fantastic. Seared on the outside and... More

First thing you see is a small store front and you think, is this the place? Yes this is the place and it is small. You stand in line to order, out the door sometimes, 15 tables inside and a few outside. Order a main burger, mine was the double cheese, then you add you own extras, i had grilled... More

Best Hamburger in Hawaii ! They say it is because the meat is fresh from cows raised on the Island and I believe it!.. Wonderful Grilled flavor, juicy made to order. Served with their own garlic aoeli sauce (nothings like mcdonalds) Narrow cut on the french fried are perfect pair. Nothing special about the fast food style, but the burger... More

I wish we had found this place before our last day in Kona. A fantastic burger with flavorful meat and fresh toppings. We will definitely be eating here again.
