Tasty Burger...good price

Tasty burger, cooked fresh, and a very fair price compared to other restaurants in the area. The house sauce is different, and it goes great with the fresh cut fries. Food was out quick, although it wasn't very busy. The lettuce, tomato, onion, were really fresh and full of flavor.

My husband and I grind our beef at home for burgers so we have high standards for our hamburgers and these did not disappoint. Our first visit we had an ahi sandwich and a double burger with cheese. We couldn't decide which would be better so we each had a half. The ahi was fantastic. Seared on the outside and... More

First thing you see is a small store front and you think, is this the place? Yes this is the place and it is small. You stand in line to order, out the door sometimes, 15 tables inside and a few outside. Order a main burger, mine was the double cheese, then you add you own extras, i had grilled... More

Best Hamburger in Hawaii ! They say it is because the meat is fresh from cows raised on the Island and I believe it!.. Wonderful Grilled flavor, juicy made to order. Served with their own garlic aoeli sauce (nothings like mcdonalds) Narrow cut on the french fried are perfect pair. Nothing special about the fast food style, but the burger... More

I wish we had found this place before our last day in Kona. A fantastic burger with flavorful meat and fresh toppings. We will definitely be eating here again.

Stopped in while on the way back from snorkeling in Honaunau bay and grabbed some lunch and it was great! The staff was friendly and the burger was actually cooked to order (medium) which was a great chance from other chain burger places. Definitely worth a stop if you are looking for a great burger.

Stopped in while on vacation. Burgers were simple but delicious. We made sure to stop by once more before we left. Excellent place to grab lunch.

We read about this place in our guidebook. We had a long day of hiking and decided to check it out. I'm not particularly one to get excited about burgers but my husband is, so why not. It was literally the best burger he or I have ever had. Yes, it's a little pricey, but so is everything else in... More

It was lunchtime and we were close so we took a chance on a place we'd never been. Would definitely go back. The menu was somewhat hard to read on the chalkboard, but once we reached the words "Ultimate Cheeseburger" we were good. The lemonade and locally brewed beer were very good, the burger was truly righteous and the French... More
