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.

We went here a few times during a week's stay in Hanalei. Tasty burgers. The wait time can be fairly long as there are only a few staff members, so plan accordingly if you're hungry or in a rush.

A very good inexpensive burger in a great location. Long lines but easily the best burger in Hanalei.

The burger we had great flavor, the burger bubbas way with their relish made every bite better. The onion rings were crisp without being too greasy. Good food and good service.

Yes, it's fast food, but the character of the place and the taste of the burger are well worth the indulgence. My teriyaki and pineapple burger was great. Chowing down under an evening rainstorm was memorable.
