Ultimate burger uses only local grass fed beef and local grown vegetables,the result is hands down one of the best tasting burgers around!! Fast, friendly service is a plus as well. If your in Kona stop by and check them out you wont be disappointed!!

Great burger and tasty fries! Love that just about everything is organic and locally sourced. Everything is made to order. We just happened to stumble across this place and so glad we did. Neat decor/atmosphere with chill music and friendly staff.

Order at the counter and they bring it out to you - there are a couple of outdoor tables and a small but functional indoor seating area. Burgers are perfection, fries are good but nothing special. There are a few non-burger offerings as well.

The burgers here are supposed to be island beef. Tastes the same as regular hamburger, and is overpriced for what you get. Nothing special about the hamburger that they served.

I was really hungry so I was tempted to order the biggest burger they had, but decided on the smaller but still very large double decker. Makes it easier to eat. No regrets! Great burger! And tasty fries and sauce too. Friendly staff. Unfortunately not much for a view. Just a large parking lot.

Must get the fish sandwich if they have it. I had the Ono sandwich and am still dreaming about it. Super fresh locally sourced ingredients and great service. Don't be dissuaded by the strip mall location. We eat here and often and LOVE it!!!

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.
