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!

Great burgers and fries! Burgers were fresh and juice. Fries had an excellent flavor with a tasty garlic sauce. The best part is the add ons... You can add anything you want to your burger.

Not too bad of a wait and a good place to get a solid burger. The fresh catch (Ahi) burger was spectacular and the fries were good. Worth it if you are in the area and hungry!

Great locally sourced burgers and fries. Ate dinner here on a steamy Friday night. Ordered a beer and was told by the cashier that the keg was empty. The manager quickly told me that there wasn't anyone working at that time who could lift and change a keg. I told her that as a former bartender I had changed many... More

The burgers were amazing and the fact that they use local grass fed beef and organic when possible made it that much better!!

Went to have lunch here on our last day on the BI. Good burger and fries, a little on the high end for casual dining, burger with added bacon/onions and fried was ~$13. Food did take a while, to the point where I had to go ask if they had forgotten my order. It was really good though, so if... More

I love the burgers at this place. They are all cooked to order, juicy and fresh. The fish is fabulous too....but the things I can't stop eating are the fries and dipping sauce, which are addicting.
