We stopped in for lunch. They serve grass fed big island beef the burgers were so tasty and served on fresh baked buns. I added bacon and cheese and was in heaven. The fries are freshly cut and not greasy at all. You can taste how fresh everything was

Ultimate Burger is now on our family's list of places to eat at when we visit the Big Island. The quality of the "grass fed beef" burger and the chili soup is amazing. For sure, it's a burger place, you can't afford not to visit when you are on the Big Island.

This is a good option if you want to eat on the cheap. Stopped by here on a whim after coming back from the beach. Staff was friendly and cut our burger in half when they found out we were sharing. Serves local grass fed beef. Good option if you want to dine cheap. Plus- also nearby shopping (Target, Ross,... More

We all enjoyed this place. We went twice. The first time I thought my burger was a little over cooked but the 2nd time it was great. The fries are really good and the sauce served with the fries is nice. The chili was good as well. My 2 gripes were: 1-its hot inside the restaurant and 2-the soda machine... More

With 'organic' and 'local grass fed beef' on the window we decided to give it a try. Horribly disappointing. A small burger (fries are extra) that was expensive and just tasteless. No salt no taste. Just a waste of time. I didn't even finish it and I didn't have fries (because they didn't mention it didn't come with. Their homemade... More

Clean and friendly, but when the girl asks each person ordering, "pink or no pink in the burger?" You'd think they'd get it right... they didn't, and my brother could only eat around the edges of his burger. I showed the girl how pink it was when I self-bussed the table. To her credit she apologized, but no offer to... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I went to Ultimate Burger and discovered that it was an organic restaurant! The inside is like a modern hawaiian meets texas coffee shop. They have beautiful photos of produce on the walls and adorable mason jar chandeliers. Only disappointment was the small side of fries for $4 and the sour tasting fry sauce. The... More

Great tasting burger and fries, maybe because I was hungry I wish the burger was a little bigger, or they give you an option for a larger burger, same thing for the fries

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.
