We ate an early dinner here one day as a hydro pole had fallen on the Kamehameha Highway and we couldn't get back to our resort. It was burgers and sandwiches with a fairly high price tag. I liked the tables by the tiki torches. There was nothing special about this place but all of Haleiwa is kind of a... More

On our last days in Hawaii, after having eaten a lot of fish and seafood, we missed some beef and a good burger joint showed up in front of us. The burgers there are out of this world!! Delicious buns and also fantastic thin like matches fries. Cool atmosphere too! I had a pineapple burger wit added bacon and cheese.... More

Kua Aina seems to be well known for good burgers, but my wife and I were really pleased with the grilled mahi mahi sandwiches as well as the shoestring fries that really are as good as the TA reviews seem to indicate! We visited this location based on the many positive reviews, and we were not disappointed with the food.... More

Kua Aina has been a regular stop in Haleiwa for years. Great burgers, like their skinny crisp fries, and the fish and chicken sandwiches are good too. Gets pretty crowded, so sometimes wait is longer then I like and it is a bit more expensive, but always a spot to stop in Haleiwa.

You can order a 1/3-pound or a 1/2-pound burger and choose your toppings and even the bun. I always get the burger on toasted rye. The fish burgers are excellent, especially when order with the ortega chiles. Better to go in off-hours because the place is popular with tourists and gets crowded during the lunch hour.

Some of the best French fries that I have ever had. Thin and crunchy - to die for! The avocado burger is also amazing. You get a 1/2 of an avocado not just a little bit of mashed avocado like most avocado burgers but a whole 1/2 of the ripe, green beautiful avocado. I have been going here for years... More

We all had great burgers for dinner. The pineapple burger is terrific, very juicy and flavorful. The avacado burger was a hit for others. Definitely share a large order of fries with someone. Go here, eat a burger!

You have to stop here if you're in Haleiwa! The burgers are amazing! You might not think pineapple would go well on a burger, but you have to try it. There's some parking in the rear. And they offer a military discount.

Dropped by this place while north by Turtle Beach. Pleasant surprise because the food was wonderful. Loved the burger choices and string fries. Had a Teri Chicken sandwich and it was spot-on! Reasonable, too.
