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...

Stopped for lunch anticipating a repeat of the juicy, tasty burgers I had when I last ate here in 2007 and 2008. What a disappointment! After the usual wait (the order taker says 15 minutes but it is more like 40) what arrived was barely edible. The supposed 1/4 lb. burger was thin, dry, and burnt to a crisp. Seems... More

Please know there is no bathroom facilities here. You are told to drive 5 miles to the beach for a bathroom. Arrived at noon, one person in line in front of us. They are so busy taking phone orders that those of us out of town visitors, wait very long wait. Chickens running all over leaving their waist on tables.... More

We always have to make the "Ono Char Burger run" whenever we come to Kuaui! Vintage tables, roaming chickens, and a convenience market to grab a beer.

There is a reason why it took 45 minutes to get our food at Duane's Ono Burger. . . the food is delicious, inexpensive, and totally worth the wait. (The woman at the counter also warned us it would be a while when we ordered.) I got the local girl with a veggie burger. My only complaint: they close pretty... More

People on here have recommended the Local Boy and it was worth it - we had one of those and a Local Girl (had Swiss cheese instead of cheddar). Both yum and did the job. Fries and onion rings both good. Fairly expensive (I think onion rings were about $4-5). Service was okay but like other places on Kauai, I'm... More

Best greasy burger I've had in a long time! I had the local boy (teriyaki and pineapple) and it was awesome, along with the crisp onion rings and the marionberry milkshake. So good. Bring cash. Honestly, I didn't even ask if they take credit, but they are literally a little trailer on the side of a convenience store with outside... More
