While on an outdoor adventure on Kauai, a tour guide was asked about places to eat. He mentioned Duanes Ono Char-Burgers. While it was on the other side of the island we thought it might be worth the drive while visiting Princeville. So, we found this little red hamburger stand with tables outside. We both ordered the Teriyaki Burger. Like... More

This is the place for great burgers. And, because they are so good and so well known, don't expect to walk up to the window and place your order. It will take time. You will meet all kinds of people. And, if you decide to dine there, you will share your table with the omnipresent Kauai chickens. As I said... More

We had a great lunch at a great price. I was happy to see a bocca burger on the menu. I ordered it island girl style (pineapple, Swiss cheese and teriyaki sauce. Order the sauce on the side as it was a bit too much for me). Of course we had onion rings. Great service and and a nice outside... More

When we travel, we look for the food places locals like to eat at. Our concierge tipped us off on this location and after a morning hike, we found this place in Anahola, which if you sneeze, you've passed it. We ordered up a couple burgers, sat with a few loitering chickens (if you've been to Kauai, you'll understand) and... More

My wife and I stopped here after an afternoon at Anini beach. We had a great late lunch on the outdoor picnic tables. The menu is simple but tasty and the food was inexpensive. We had the "Island Girl" burger and onions rings. Both were delicious!

We drove beyond Kapa'a just for cheeseburgers at this location. This is basically a take-out restaurant with limited picnic-style tables available next to it. We both ordered the cheeseburgers, mine with cheddar cheese and my husband's with swiss cheese. We shared the great onion rings. A couple of things to note---there are no public restrooms in the immediate area. You... More

This is a great place to stop for lunch when in Kauai. It was a little slow but worth the wait. Great value in a place where most everything is priced high.

Burgers and onion rings taste great, but then again what doesn't taste good when you are on the side of the road in Kauai with chickens running around ? Food really is good, nice little covered outdoor eating area, chickens pretty polite. Favorite of the locals , a nice little stop when driving towards Hanalei. Try it for the total... More

A porter at the Maui airport told us to stop here on our way out to Princeville. We probably wouldn't have even noticed this little hut if we weren't looking for it. We each had a different burger and they were all delicious! ! I'm not a big onion ring fan, but theirs were amazing!! Three if us ate for... More
