First time visiting Ultimate Burger and it won't be the last. I loved the burger...had mine cooked medium with sauteed onions, grilled pineapple, pickle slices, tomato and whatever is in their "special sauce". I guess all burger places feel the need for special sauce these days. The burger was a tad messy with all that crammed in but it was... More

Came here with my husband, brother in law, sister and niece for burgers and fries on recommendation of guidebook from our condo. Great burgers (does it rival Sure Thing Burger in Maui? No, but comparable), delicious fries though I'm not exactly a fan of shoestring type fries with delicious garlic aioli. I had an ahi burger (had given up meat... More

We came here for lunch and loved our hamburgars. Garlic aoli with the fries was amazing. Staff were friendly and we thought the price was fair.

Wow, what a great place to eat. We stopped here for a quick bite and were pleasantly surprised. I ordered the local fish sandwich and fries. The sandwich was pricey but excellent. I devoured it and was ready and willing to eat another :) The fries were also excellent, I really enjoyed the dip that it came with. I highly... More

I have eaten burgers all over the continent, and the hype from user reviews on Tripadvisor let me down. The beef is local, and the burger is tasty, but really I have had far better burgers in my time. The fries were good, it had local fresh thyme and parsley sprinkled on top with dipping (Aioli) sauce. The wait was... More

I love Ultimate Burger. It'a not that I won't eat at McD's or the like, but I like a real burger when I can get it. We've been here a bunch of times. The burgers are local beef. The buns are locally baked. The greens are locally grown. Seeing a trend? :-) And it all plays! The lemonade is good... More

Not since the original Fuddruckers in Houston, TX back in the 80's have I had a burger so good. They make their own buns and have prime beef. Great fries. Just a little place in a strip mall but a great taste. I think they put Wendy's out of business. If not, they could. First stop you should make. Yum.

Limited menu, but really delicious burgers! We were in Kona for 3 nights and my husband got Ultimate Burger for lunch one day and dinner the next.

This really was the ultimate burger and fries. The restaurant is located in a mall near Ross along with a number of other fast food options. The Ultimate Burger is unlike "fast food", as it is cooked when you order it and the fries are home cut and delicious. The burger was cooked exactly as requested and took around 15... More
