Burgers were fresh and hot and tasty due to the 100 % grass fed beef, most reasonable price eatery in this shopping center for something quick & easy- they have both outdoor and indoor dining room - Milk shake was really good, kids liked it!

Delicious burgers and great fries and onion rings. Slow if you get stuck in a line. Very local feel to it. Recommend if you looking for something simple.

We visit Kauai annually and always eat at Bubba Burger's - especially on our first day when we're still dragged out from travel and time change. You can always count on a good burger there, ni point in trying out a new restaurant until you've gotten settled.Not only are the burgers good, their onion rings are awesome. Milk shakes are...

Bubba's is Hanalei so don't miss it. Very nicely managed with friendly staff. Love their burgers and fries. Sometimes they offer fresh fish sandwiches too! T-shirts are funny and good quality.

I don't know what it is about Kauai beef but it is SO GOOD! Don't be put off by the line up to Bubba's. It moves quickly and just gives you more time to check out the menu. The burgers come with relish (which is fantastic) and onions. IF you don't want either, make that clear when you order. Gluten... More

If you are looking for a reasonably priced fast food meal made with local quality ingredients look no further. During rush hour, it takes a while to get your order taken and cooked but it is worth your patience. The burgers and chili are all tasty. Besides, Buba has the honesty to point out that lettuce an tomatoes might not... More

There are several Bubba's Burgers on the island, and we stopped at several of them for a quick, but good, lunch. Nothing fancy and mostly outdoor eating, but still a good way to have lunch. Make sure you look at how the Bubba Burger is served; if you are like me and cannot eat onions, you better tell them when... More

When in Hanalei and looking for a quick meal, try Bubba Burgers. We were driving from Tunnels Beach to Princeville and stopped by Bubba Burgers. Best decision EVER. I had the double teriyaki burger with pineapple... YUM. My 9 year old grandson had the triple burger and loved it. The fries and onion rings were great too.

Good burgers and great fries. Super casual atmosphere. Tiny (2 tables) indoor seating area but more tables in patio? Line can be long at times. Reasonably priced for Kauai. Would definitely recommend.

Another local favorite is this burger joint in Hanalei. Be prepared to wait on line for burgers, shakes and fries( garlic fries are amazing ). There is also a locale in Poipu and Koloa
