Prior reviews stated the burgers were "thick and juicy". Nothing could be further from the truth. The three of us each had hamburgers and they were thin and well-done. As are most restaurants in Hawaii, the place is over priced. As usual, there was a long gap between ordering the food and getting it even though there were only a... More

We had a regular burger and cheeseburger with fries and green salad. The burgers were very tasty and well assembled with lettuce and tomato. The fries were firm/crisp and the salad was fresh with sweet onion rings. We ate at three other restaurants in Kaunakakai and Molokai Burger was the best by far as well as a good value. Recommend...

Honestly wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. A Dairy Queen feel but with wider variety of menu choices. We had the Molokai burger and the crispy chicken sandwich, both were good. The onion rings were quite good and we'll stop in here again before we leave. Beyond the sandwiches there were some plate lunch and salads choices.

I travel for business and visit Molokai about 4 times each year. Molokai Burger has a great menu for travelers including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I love the Salmon Salad, the burgers are great (as good or better than anywhere), and breakfasts are very reasonably priced and very good.

Great local hamburger place, the closest to a fast food place your going to find on the island, but filled with island charm.

Ate here while waiting for our flight to honolulu. Very good food and good price. I ordered salmon and i loved it. It's a fastfood restaurant but it doesn't look like it. And i got to meet the lady who started the Post-a-nut 20 years ago.

It was hard to find a quick place to grab a bite during our day trip to Molokai. After our hike and the Father Damien tour, we need to kill some time and grab something to eat before our departure to Maui. The burgers were good and so were the onion rings. Just what we needed to refuel!

In our 10 days on Molokai, we cooked most of our own meals, due to the limited number of restaurants. Of course, that lack of tourist-infrastructure is part of what makes this a great place to visit, right? Anyway, this was a good burger and the onion rings were great. Best burger in my life? No, but a good one.
