Tasty cheeseburgers and fries. Good for quick cheap feed. The milkshakes were not great - very thick, like drinking soft serve ice cream.

I ordered the taro vegan burger. However I watched them grill the bun and the patty with the beef burgers so my "vegan" burger was dripping with cow juices. Put me right off. Gutted as I was looking forward to it.

I love Bubbas burgers and their corn dogs. While in Kauai we visited a lot of hamburger places and we stopped at Bubbas at least 3 times in 2 weeks. They have one of the best burgers on the island. You can not go wrong with a Bubbas burger. The service is good, prices are reasonable and the food is... More

This place is a must if you are traveling along the north coast of Kauai HI.The burgers are best and the staff all females was great. The shopper is awesome. A 1/3 beef party with chili on top. Don't waste time and money on the golden arches or the have it your way place. Go straight to Bubba's

After waiting in the long line I ordered the Bubba burger and a Caesar salad. The burger was very greasy and the meat tasted old. There was way too much dressing on the salad. There are much better burger joints on the island. This burger was more on the level of something you'd get out of a convenience store microwave,... More

Great burgers here. Frings are killer! Love the onion rings. I got the double slopper. Their chili is pretty bomb. My hubby got the bubba burger with 3 patties and was satisfied the time before he only got 2 patties and was still a lil hungry. Add cheese and your tummy will be happy!

Thank Nina M
