We stopped here after the beach one afternoon. It was in between lunch and dinner but there was still a line. That's always a good sign to us. Burgers and fries were good! Grass fed local beef is what we try to eat at home so this was a draw for us. We didn't mind the wait since they cook... More

Average burger place with some nice picnic tables to eat at. Service was ok and so were the prices. Good tasting burgers and French fries.

We had to wait 25 minutes to get a so-so burger (this was after placing our order). We waited in line for about 20 minutes just to place our order. Not impressed. Recommend going somewhere else for a burger.

Service is ok - but the food is great! I had the corn dog and fries. My husband had the double bubba burger. I already want to go back!

Burgers taste good and include sautéed onions, but if you are used to add-ons such as avocados, or mushrooms, you are out of luck. That's a shame because Kauai has some of the best avocados I have ever tasted.

Average hamburgers that are popular because of convienence, and also because there are so few restaurants in town. No tomatoes on your hamburger here. Just basic stuff. Only went once in the week I was there.

This was a great little takeout place. We usually grabbed a couple of burgers and onion rings to take home for the night. Definitely have the burgers as they serve them (no lettuce or tomatoes.) Ask for their bbq sauce - adds a nice zing to the burgers. Definitely worth a visit while in Kauai.

This place is an island icon, visit the one in Hanelei, it's the original. Great burgers. Sit outside at the picnic tables and people watch. We go every year after hiking the Kalalau trail. Can't beat it.

Bought a burger with fries and milkshake. The burger tasted good though they didn't have tomatoes or lettuce. Fries were good but the milkshake was watery (like it was melted).

Enjoyable local burger joint, pretty darn good burger. Service was quite slow, but what's your hurry anyway.

Thank kgmon
