On my drive around the north shore area, I stopped in here for something to eat. I ordered a bacon cheeseburger with fries and a soda. There weren't a lot of people in this place so I was a little surprised at how long it took for my order to be ready. The burger was definitely good and hot. But... More

The burgers are very good, juicy and tasty and big. We usually get the half pound and split it. The burger is topped with tomatoes, lettuce and onions and a little messy while eating, but worth it. If you like dill pickles, buy it as a side, it's good.

We have been frequenting this restaurant for quite some time and it is always as good as the last. We have tried a couple of different sandwiches on the menu and every one is amazing. Yesterday we tried a homemade cookie as well and it was wonderful! Highly recommend this to anyone that is visiting and be sure to try... More

It's not a totally obvious place but look for the Pizza Bob's and it's right across the street. There's indoor and outdoor seating. There's plenty of parking in back. Burgers and fish sandwiches are awesome. Don't forget the fries!

I had eaten burgers like this in Seoul. It costs far less than this, and it was WAY better than this. If you expected good tasting burgers, do not go there. You could get better food im other places like Seoul(for my experience).

I realized that I had been in Hawaii and hadn't eaten any Mahi. It's solo much better her than on the Gulf coast! The sandwich was task, love the grilled onion. The bun is perfect also. I would eat there every day if I could.

The avocado burger (no bun, add bacon) was great. Fast food atmosphere. High quality food. Drink menu says BYOB - nice to know that's an option since they don't serve alcohol.

My sister was visiting the island and wanted to go back to Kua Aina, where she had eaten many times previously. The 5 of us had everything from Mahi-Mahi-Mahi burger (a fish favorite) to my Bacon-Avo-Burger, throw in some sizzling French Fires & you are good to go! Not only great for the locals, but the Japanese tourists flock to... More

Kua Aina set the bar for sumptuous gourmet burgers in Haleiwa in the mid 70s and remains the town local favorite! They use only the tastiest beef for their hamburgers and let you choose the size. Included in the price are grilled onions and the usual toppings but to take it over the top, adding half of a creamy avocado... More

We really enjoyed our lunch here. The burgers were massive, cooked to perfection and delicious. There was a minimal wait time on our food and they were happy to cook a special order for one of our children. This place is worth the visit as is the town of Haleiwa.
