“Good food, good price, good service .”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011

Having just arrived in Poipu we wanted a simple meal on the first night. We came across this place and it hit the Mark precisely. We all had burgers, which were well cooked and tasty. The meal was well priced and the waitress was pleasant, welcoming and delivered the food promptly. The poor scores in other reviews are mis-placed. It is exactly as you would want from a place named Tropical Burgers.

“Our family found this restaurant to be quite good & different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2011

Never had a chance in the past years to attend this restaurant and thought we'd give it a try this year. We enjoyed the entrees well enough to go again on our last day on the island. One must remember that the burgers are not traditional ands as a result that is what we found quite good. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to others. The price was moderate, the food good, and the service was very good.

Regards,

“Mediocre Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

We ate here after reading it was voted the best burgers in Kauai! The menu is extensive but it reads better than it taste. One would get more satisfaction eating an Angus burger at McDonald's at half the price. I had a salad instead of fries for $2.95 extra and what I got was a bowl of the ribs of the lettuce with diced tomatoes and carrots. My salad looked like the parts of the vegetable I discard when I make a salad.

Service was good but food was quite disappointing. If you want a burger In Kauai head on to one of the fast food chains. At least you know what to expect.

“Very nice people, but not good food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2011

Visited once for dinner and did not go again. Food was agreed by all to be sub-par. Prices were in line with other tourist restaurants, which is to say, overpriced for the quality but relatively standard.

Our waitress was very nice and helpful. We had nothing but positive experiences with her (she even offered to separate our checks, which was VERY nice!).

Didn't try for anything but dinner and had burgers (chicken and beef) and fries. Can't speak to anything else.
