A little pricey but not bad

After the humidity outside, it was nice to sit in this burger place for lunch ( air conditioning can be so wonderful ). Excellent fries, the hand cut, skin left on type. I found the burger patty was a little dry but all in all the burger was still very nice ( came with lettuce, cheese, tomato... read more

I adore french fries, and that has been one of the hardest things about being a celiac, no fries. These fries are made from fresh potatoes, cut daily and the flavor shows their attention to detail. The grass fed beef burgers are wonderful, so flavorful. I had mine on a lettuce with grilled pineapple and bacon. Hubby had a cheese... More

We had an extremely enjoyable lunch here. Good service, cooked to order local, grass-fed burger. Excellent fries and garlic aoli. People had commented elsewhere about the cost of the fries, but they were good fries .... Possibly the best burger on the island, and we ate a lot of them!

So listen. The burger are good, no question there. Just a little expensive for fast food when you can go to a sit down restaurants and get a larger/better local raised beef burger for the same price and it isn't fast food. $8 for a basic cheeseburger and $4 for the fries. I LOVE THE FLAVOR! but, some find the... More

The burgers and fries seemed to be made of quality, fresh ingredients. The aioli sauce that comes with the fries was a delicious complement. The restaurant is clean and has character. For example, there is a map of the Hawaiian islands on the wall made out of bottle caps. This is a fast casual restaurant. Great eats for the price.

I've become somewhat infatuated with the quality of the grass fed, free range beef in Hawaii. On the big island, in particular, cattle graze outdoors across hundreds of acres. The market beef here enjoys the mystic of the Japanese "Koby", since consumers perceive Hawaiian beef as a superior alternative to Mainland beef Hawaii beef is not forced to be price-competitive...
