“Best Burger on Kauai”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Bubba's has no peer on Kauai where it comes to burgers. Kapa'a and Hanalei are both outstanding restaurants to eat great burgers.

Ya they rock!

“The Inn and Out Burger of Hanalei”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

While probably pricier and not quite as high quality as Inn and Out Burger, Bubba's was a great choice for "normal" food for our young kids - good shakes ($5 ea.), good burgers but wish they'd hold the mustard and relish and add fresh lettuce and tomatoes. Decent, fast, a lot less than Kalypso's for a family of 4 for lunch. Good french fries.

“When you need a quick bite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Great for the in-between time (hikes/beach/etc). When you don't want a sit down, but want satisfying food.

“This is a must stop when you are in Hawaii”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Loved the burgers and pickles. The range of toppings is fun and if you have never had a pineapple on your burger, you truly are missing out. Had ours in Hanalie, sat at a picnic table and people watched while we ate. Not fancy but worth the mess on your hands when your done.
