I'm usually skeptical of declarations such as "Ultimate" but decided to give it a try. It does take a while to get your order but it was worth the wait. A true test of a burger is if the meat tastes good on it's own...no condiments. I pulled off a piece of my burger and it had it's own flavor,... More

Someone there really knows how to make sauces and dips. I like this place because you can buy a grass-fed hamburger for $7 (the 'ultimate hamburger'). The beer also comes in a frosty, frosty mug.

This place was excellent! I'm so glad that I found it based on great reviews. The girl at the cashier was very sweet when I ordered my cheeseburger, french fries & free lemonade. The cheeseburger was delicious and so were the french fries with the house made aioli. I'm sure if there was one in California I'd be visiting it... More

This is a small burger place in a mall just south of the airport. But it really does have extremely good traditional hamburgers. The atmosphere is better than Anna's, another good locals spot which is south on Highway 11. But the burgers are better at Ultimate.

The flight from HNL was late, so we were really hungry. Ultimate Burger was our savior. Enjoyed the ultimate cheeseburger. The burger is loaded, lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, special sauce. The beef is local, grass fed. Fries are freshly made with a special aioli on the side. OMG, the fries are incredible. And forget adding ketchup -- the aioli is... More

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.
