Great quality burger!

We visit the big island every other year. This small hamburger restraunt is always on our must do list. Everything is made fresh with all local ingredients. Very good.

I have been checking this place out! Decided to give it a go. Ate there yesterday with 4 other family members. Even at lunch time with the place humming, it was a great experience. The best burgers I have ever had, so juicy! And those buns, delicious! Don't get me started on the fries, amazing! And very nice to have... More

This place is dirty! As you walk in the front door are never cleaned, grease all on them, floors dirty, tables not cleaned, usually very warm inside, (a/c not working properly). Ordered food last night, and they were nor rushed or terribly busy. Well done hamburgers, bold on bun, bloody, fries dried out and cold. Gave food back to manager,... More

Amazing burgers!! Island grown beef and local ingredients makes for an amazing burger. The fries are large enough to share, with an amazing aioli dipping sauce. Lots of toppings to choose from!

This is a classic place for a date. The price makes this feel more of a restaurant value, even though it can feel like fast food. Meals are around $10 in the end and that is pricey for me for fast food, so just go and dine in and enjoy the atmosphere. Speaking of which, is a really nice chill... More

I don't know what it is about the Big Island, but apparently they got some delicious burger joints!!! I had a double bacon swiss burger, and liked it so much, that I bought another single burger when I was done! Seriously. This place is the real deal and I'm sure most people will love it. Easy to find, awesome quick... More

This is where you go for great Hawaiian beef! Try the double-decker. The condiments in your burger will be a mere supplement to the juicy, grill-roasted patties!

Back for a visit and had to stop and confirm Ultimate Burger was still the best burger we've ever had, We were NOT disappointed! Delicious grass fed beef, light and soft buns, delicious options to add on (grilled pineapple, mushrooms, avocado to name a few) and the aoli-garlic dipping sauce for the huge serving of great french fries are to...
