I heard about this hamburger place as the place President Obama eats at in Hawaii, so I thought I would give the restaurant a try. I ordered the 1/2 pound Pineapple Burger with Swiss Cheese on a Kaiser Roll, and it was definitely a tasty...More

Stopped in after finding out the Grass Skirt Grill has closed. Food was very good. Huge burgers and very larger basket of fries. Very friendly counter staff. Nice seating inside and out. Very cold AC inside. Would stop in again. Highly recommend.

Never disappointed time after time and year after year. Consistantly brilliant. Always very busy in peak times so.be prepared to wait if ypu arrive at 12pm-2pm. Regardless it's worth the wait. They open at 11am so we always go then to beat the crowds.

Long line, limited seating, but really great food! And very friendly service. It’s not just a burger joint. Check out their menu. (We sort of wished they had milkshakes, too, however!)

In my humble opinion, the best burgers in Hawaii (well, on Oahu at least). Pricey, but so worth it. Nice, juicy and flavorful. It's a great way to top off a day at the beach.
