“Delicious burgers and salads in a fun surfer atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

We've never been disappointed with the food, but beware of long lunch lines and the ensuing wait for the girl to bring out your food. It's worth the wait, but if you can go at a time that's not as busy, why not? Watch surfing videos or fish in the huge aquarium, and check out the surfer memorabilia along the walls. Vegetarian and kid friendly.

“Wonderful place for a hamburger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

We ate here tonight. Husband had the cheeseburger combo and I had the grilled chicken breast with green chilis on sourdough. Wonderful taste! I would suggest though that instead of the sourdough bread for the chicken sandwich, they use a hamburger bun. Great atmosphere and everything is clean and simple.

“Great place to for a hamburger or fish sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2010

This is a great local place for a hamburger or my favorite the fish sandwich. I take the family here often and it is consistently good food. The service is relatively fast and always friendly. It's a real casual atmosphere and good for families. Give the sweet potato fries a try.

“Turkey burgers are the best!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2009

We live in the area and think the turkey burgers are the best in town. They aren't those thin frozen patties so many places use. You do have to wait longer for the turkey burgers to cook, but it is worth it. Also, you can substitute turkey burgers in the Island Burger. Other menu items are good too such as the kabobs.

Kahuna's has a casual Hawiian surfer atmosphere so If you want it quieter and less of a wait be sure to go during the off hours because lunch time is packed with students and workers form the area. It can be hard to find seating inside, but they do have seating outside as well. As a locals we go an hour before or after peak dining times.
