COLD draft beers and delicious burgers are the fare here. Smooth service and sweet potato fries. Entertainment as well. Oh, did I mention COLD beer on tap?

An absolutely fantastic hamburger - every one I've tried, and there is a great selection. Starts with local grass fed beef (or better) an add great ingredients for excellent burgers. The prime-rib French dip is pretty darn good too. Friendly wait staff and a full bar round out a great lunch or dinner stop. Yes burgers start in the $12... More

We had worked up an appetite in the morning, and by early afternoon all we had on our minds was burgers. I checked google for a place in Hilo (the town we were coming upto) and found the burger joint. Walking in, it looks a tad dark, but we were very pleasantly suprised when we saw other meals being brought... More

My favorite part about Hilo Burger Joint is you have the option to substitute the beef patty! I know it sounds silly to go to a burger joint and not want beef, but I physically get sick eating beef, but I love the burger. Here you can sub for a delicious turkey burger! So I could have all the things... More

This is a nice air conditioned location not to far from downtown Hilo. The menu offers many differently dressed burgers. Many sounded great, I selected a tourist traditional Teri-Burger, added goat cheese at the servers suggestion which made it a hit with me. Simple, yet tasty. The beer should have been a bit colder than it was upon delivery and... More

Not a pleasant atmosphere, dark and dirty. The burgers were okay but nothing special. It bothers me when a restaurant menu talks about the beef so highly but then they don't know how to properly season it with salt. It doesn't matter how many toppings you put on it an improperly cooked and seasoned hamburger just won't matter. No one... More

Stopped by Hilo Burger joint after a morning of hiking. The staff was wonderful. The burgers were great. My husband had the Teri burger and I had the blue burger. Both were juicy and fresh. Our kids both had kids meals and they were great sized portions. The restaurant had a bar atmosphere but was still kid friendly.

We were driving back to the hotel after zip lining and searching for a place to grab a burger. This was a complete surprise to stumble across. The burgers were fantastic. My anti-burger daughter had possibly the best cheese sandwich ever.
