Quick and delicious burgers before heading back to the mainland

We had a craving for good burgers before leaving Kona and read about Ultimate Burger. We were not disappointed! Burgers we're very tasty, including the mushroom sandwich which was great for the one who doesn't eat meat in our group. Buns were soft and flavorful. The butter lettuce was so good and... read more

Gave this a try after reading the reviews and left us somewhat disappointed as we expected better. Fries were good but have had better burgers in Kona.

My wife and I had take out burgers. The taste was ok, but both were very greasy. My wife had to throw her bun away as it was soaked in grease. I took the beef paddy out and blotted the grease with a napkin. We won't return.

Yeah, it is in a shopping center. However, the quality of the food is why it is so popular. When they say island made, they mean it. From the burgers to the fries, nothing is a bad option. And the house made lemonade. Maybe shore on atmosphere, but a great grab and go if heading to activities. And, it's easy... More

We had lunch here after a morning at the beach. What can I say? The burger was excellent- juicy, flavourful and pink in the middle, (if you want it that way!) The fries were the best part- wished we had more, but was too full to eat anymore! The aioli is scrumptious! This place is like a fast food place,... More

Stopped off at Ultimate Burger after a long day on the road. Did not have time to go back to room to shower and change for dinner. (Most places close at 9:00 pm). We had a couple of cheeseburgers and kiddy burgers for the kids. The burgers were great and so were the fries and chilli. Just a tip, the... More

We stopped by as always when visiting the Big Island, the burgers are as great as usual but the service can be very slow. Don't plan to be in a hurry - staff are very friendly!

I was hesitant to try Ultimate Burger due to it's location in a strip mall but after a morning of shopping we gave it a try and...Wow! The burgers are absolutely delicious, the fries look freshly cut and tasted great and the service was better than most at this style of restaurant. I had the naked burger with sauteed mushrooms...
