Had lunch here, the atmosphere is very laid back, they did bring the food to the table, and get us forks for our salad. The Ahi burger was great, and the salad was exceptional! Liked the FF's. Would eat here again, and a must stop on any Big Island visit list

This must be the worst Burger place I have visited in a very, very long time. We pulled into the Shopping Centre and saw that this place was the only one we didn't recognise as a Chain fast food place. Given the popularity of the place (we didn't realise at the time that half the tables were waiting for their... More

Really good grass fed beef and thin yummy fries. Nice options to add to the burger. Would be nice if they'd add a veggie burger.

Okay burgers, but overpriced. Come on, $8 for a small burger and additional $4 for fries. Plus tax and a drink? $16 before you are out the door. It would be okay if it was anything special. Burgers are cooked inconsistently every time we go. Wait is long. Try Pine Tree Café North of Costco for better food and prices... More

Yes, it's Big Island beef, but we didn't think it was THAT great. Very pricey for sort of "fast food" style restaurant. Go to Annie's Burgers in South Kona for a really great Big Island burger.

Wow! grass fed, organic beef is really better than regular burgers. The food was so good here we came back a few days later. The burgers were great and the toppings, avocado, lettuce, were really fresh. A local told us the chili is really good here too and often sells out, we didn't get a chance to try it because... More
