“Best in the World? Possibly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Local products for the entire menu. Huge portions which could easily be split. Unique menu from beef to fish to vegetarian. The fries are great, I had Parmesan with sun dried tomato caper dip. Ono!

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We usually went to Village Burger once a week. After multiple times of their being out of avocado, not offering the roasted garlic, fries that were overcooked and hard, we decided never to return. The rolls also seemed different as if they were cutting costs.

“Tasty Local Burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

This place which is located in a shopping mall is small, but you can sit outside or in the main food hall. The meat is locally grown and ground daily. Other things are also served here like fish, but the draw is the fresh beef raised not far from the restaurant. Also, local produce is used for the lettuce, tomatoes, onions, etc. The hamburgers are lean with little salt & pepper (or perhaps none) and antibiotic free. Gluten free buns are available, too. You can get other things added to the hamburger when ordering. All burgers are made to order. The beef is grass fed & if you are use to corn fed cows, there is a slight difference in taste. This place is definitely worth a stop, but be prepared for waiting lines during peak dining times. The regular hamburgers are listed as a combination of chuck & brisket & cost around $8. The wagyu hamburgers cost around $12. There is even a veal burger, too. For a tasty and healthy hamburger, this is the place to try if you are on the Big Island.

“Great beef, especially for an island in the Pacific”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Burgers were great. Stopped because we saw them on the food network. Worth it. A bit pricey but again worth it. In a food court of a shopping center. The shopping center also has the most reasonable grocery store on the island! Closer to out resort than running into Kona. Just a FYI for the frugal traveler.

“A locovore Burger Joint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Tucked away on the edge of a strip mall food court, I would not have had high expectations, but reading the Tripadvisor reviews made me curious.
Don't let the location dissuade you. The ingredients are all locally sourced and you can tell the difference in the taste. I experienced taste bud overload on first bite into my burger... Local grass fed beef, succulent tomatoes,.... You can dissect the various flavors at your leisure.
They also have fish and non meat eater options.
Very much well worth a stop.
This place fits the Locally Grown theme of Waimea perfectly!
