“Very decent retro burger joint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

We ate in the Kapaa branch and the burgers were just fine - simple beef patties in a bun and cooked right. If you want a mega luxo burger slathered in gourmet sauces and truffle oil this isn't the place but the onion rings were great and the chiliburger was delicious. Atmosphere is Happy Days. Staff are very friendly and if you wear a Bubba cap or Tshirt you get a free soda.

“Yah it's that good.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

If I could curse here I would cause there's a reason Bubba Burgers get's such great reviews. 1. The food is incredible and 2. the price is the best on the island. Go, have a burger, you won't be disappointed.

“Good, basic burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

I think the only thing lacking on the north shore of Kauai is good restaurants. This is a decent place for lunch. Everything is expensive here, of course. So, I would rate Bubba as not quite as good as Five Guys at twice the price. But, we are in paradise, so can we really complain?

“Gotta Try it Once”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Every time we go to Kaua'i, we go to Bubba Burgers in Hanalei once. Better than fast food on the mainland, nice outdoor picnic table seating; average fries.

“Great burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We enjoyed Bubba's so much, we ate there twice. The burgers are juicy and tasy. We were hesitant about the relish, but really liked it. Fries only mediocre, especially if you get them to go.
