“Local burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

These burgers are made from local meat and are juicy and tasty. If you are on a diet don't expect healthy however, we were able to have our burger in a lettuce wrap. Many types of burgers to choose from and well worth the calories.

“Burgers Great, Rude Cashier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

My second trip to Bubba's -- and I put up with the smart aleck cashier knowing that the burger more than made up for his rudeness. If you get a good cashier/order taker, no better fast food dining experience on the island.

“Best easy burger on the island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

Easy, quick burgers that are priced perfectly and taste amazing! We ate at the poipu location. I wish we had gone one more time! A must visit after a day on the beach or breaking from the beach for lunch!

“Disappointing - Food burnt”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We were looking for a place open after 7 on a Saturday night near our hotel, thought we'd venture out to try something other than the hotel restaurant fare, and headed to Kapaa. We first thought we'd try Chicken In A Bucket, but when we saw it was a food stand, not a sit down restaurant, decided we needed to look elsewhere (we didn't relish eating in our rental car).

There was very little open other than fast food chains which we could do back home, then saw Bubba Burgers. It looked like a cute place, and then the menu had corn dogs, chili dogs and burgers, so we thought, what the heck.

Well, we were quite disappointed. The vanilla and chocolate shakes we got were great, but the corn dog we ordered was burnt so badly they decided to cook another one. Unfortunately, it was for our youngest child, who was "starving" and whiny. Needless to say, this was the one person in our party who didn't want to have to wait even longer while they cooked up another one.

And unfortunately, while the fries were decent, the onion rings (we ordered the mixed combo), were also overcooked.

I ordered a chili dog, which it turns out, had a burnt bun underneath the smoothering of sauce.

The family members who had burgers thought those were good, but after comparing to other food we got (including some great Thai food at a truck), looking back on it, the overall reaction was "not again" for Bubba Burger.

“Good fresh food at reasonable prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

Stopped here while in town. One of a few different Bubba's locations on the island. Burgers might be a bit small but they taste great. Several reviewers weren't happy with the fries, however, I thought they were good and crispy. Very reasonable and friendly folks. Seating can be a challenge at meal times. Can also take a bit but worth the wait. 3 verses 4 mostly because of seating challenge. Would stop here again.
