“Best burgers in Kauai, by far!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

This place is legit. THE best burger in Kauai and I'm a burger snob. Just be prepared to wait an oddly long time for a burger. Patience is a virtue though.

“Best burger by far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

We love Duane's burgers. It so worth the wait. Just a little place on the side of the road but you must try it. We will be there again in a few months and I am dreaming of it already. Only limited outdoor seating. We just pick it up then take it back to our resort which is not too far. Haven't tried the shakes before so I've got to do that this next time!

“A real gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This burger joint was recommended by our tour guide as having the best burger on the island. He was SO right! It doesn't look like much from the street, but it's worth the stop! Have the Local Girl Burger with pineapple and swiss cheese. It was amazing!

“Great milkshakes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

This is a small place - very easy to drive right by and miss, but it is worth it to stop! They have amazing milkshakes, and delicious - "Ono" - burgers. Reasonably priced as well. My only caution would be that it's not exactly "fast" food, but worth the wait. I will definitely try to stop there again on my next visit to Kauai!

“Super Ono”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Duane ono char-burger is a legend. You can't go to Kauai without trying Ono-char. The double blue cheese burger with bacon and teri sauce. MMMMMmmmmMMM, so ono. Then there is the fries and gotta get the seasoning powder for it. The shakes are decent as well. As for drinks might be a better value to just go to the store next door but would be bad for aunties business.
