There meals are massive, fresh, and tastes very similar to Mcdonalds. Staff are very friendly and they are quick to cook and serve. Relatively cheap meal

This is a must stop in Hanalei. We ate here 4 times in the two weeks we were here. We always had the Bubba burgers as they recommend. We also got the fries. Yum. We have 2 people who are gluten free in the family. They also have gluten free buns! Nice! The people here are hardworking and friendly. Don't... More

This was a great burger. It was better than In & Out burgers - yep I said it. The shake was good but on such a hot humid day the freezer must have been working in overdrive because it was a bit loose, we had the banana oreo shake - tasted great.

This place doesn't look like much but it's cheap and tastes amazing. My wife had the cheeseburger and I had the chili cheese fries. We paid ten dollars total. I would recommend this to anyone who is craving an American style lunch or dinner

Great lunch spot after a morning on the beach or short hike. Burgers are tasty and the area is fun. Limited seating outdoors, but not a big deal, grab it on the run.

Went to Bubba's on a whim - we were rained out of the Hanalai beach so went for lunch in town instead. Always go where the line is largest. Great burgers and good shakes. Go for the double bubba burger and the double teriyaki chicken burger with pineapple. Fries are decent. I had a strawberry shake - real ice cream... More

Bubba's sells burgers. And T-shirts and a variety of other trinkets. Despite the commercial nature of this chain, we always seem drawn here by the burgers and the experience.

We visited Bubbas here on Kauai for dinner. We had tried Bubbas on one of the other island before and remembered how good it was. I love the relish they put on the buns. Price is good too.

Loved our dinner at Bubba's burgers in Hanalei. Delicious local beef and fresh ingredients. The line might look long but it moves quickly and is well worth the wait. Yum!

Everything we've ever had here is great! The arrive is great as well. Pick a time from the most popular lunch or dinner times for quicker service. I do suggest that they make a change and add another menu for those standing in line, this would speed up up ordering process.

Thank Mary Jean H
