Stopped here for lunch on our way to the north shore when we arrived on Kauai. We were craving a burger. The burgers ARE great. We had a Duane's Special and a regular cheeseburger, and split an order of fries. Thankfully some of the tables have umbrellas because it rained while we were waiting. I'd read comments of long waits,... More

Been here a few dozen times over the years--could not wait to go back---fries tasted like chicken fat in them and iced tea had that metallic taste that happens when commercial places put hot tea into stainless steel too soon and the acids in the tea picks up the steel taste; Burger was mid-ling; I know they usually do better!...

The tangy flavor of the teriyaki sauce with the sweet pinapple is a great combination, and I've always been a fan of Swiss cheese. Definitely worth the price!

Great place for a quick bite to eat! Made to order and tasty! Lots of roosters waiting around for you to drop food, so watch out!

The burgers here could be quite ordinary as they buy their patties preformed from Kola Provisions, but Duane manages to zip then up to some very flavorful burgers. Our favorite is Duane's Special loaded - did I say loaded - with sprouts, cheese, grilled onions, his special sauce, lettuce, tomato, pickles, etc. that is simply deliciously unique. They offer very... More

I ordered the mushroom one while my husband had the blue cheese one. Mine was way better. That's why I'm rating it 3 stars. I'm not sure I'd return here but certainly this place is popular with the locals.

stop here for a decent roadside burger coming back to civilization from lovely hanelei up north and beyond. don't blink or you'll miss the red shack on the east side of kuhio near anahola beach (across the street from bouncy castle park). burgers aren't the best on the island (i give it a 6/10), but you come here for the...

Picnic tables by the side of the road. Chickens running around at your feet. Everything you could want from a local "joint". It's been there forever, and the reason is obvious.... They make good burgers at a reasonable price. If you could drive AROUND the place it would be a replacement for the old car hop joints where everybody drove... More

We would never have found Duane's but for our guide. Now, I can't wait to go back. The blue cheese burger is amazing. The staff are a little picky about their red baskets (no taking them to your car), but after being in business for 30 years who am I to second guess their business protocol. The food was all...
