I get bombarded with photos on social media of burgers that have patties stacked in the double figures. Sure they're cool in photos but I cant fathom how you would go about eating them... Ultimate Burger looked just as good, tasted great and didn't require you to dislocate your jaw to consume. My wife and I stopped in to sample... More

Came to grab a quick bite after the beach. The hamburgers are awesome, especially the meat and the way it is grilled, great flavor. The beer keg was not working and the food came out slow, but the taste made up for it.

This is a great place for a no frills meal. Yes, it's in a strip mall, but that means plenty of free parking. The burger is large, made with grass fed beef and local produce. I opted for grilled pineapple and did not have cheese. Yummy,

We liked that the beef was grass-fed. The burgers were very good. The fries were a little marginal with very thin fries and quite greasy. Some people like them that way, but I don't. Service was good with only a short wait for our food. My wife got one without a bun and was very pleased with it. Overall, we'd... More

Food is sourced local, all natural. They even make their own mayos. Very good. Just wish they were out near the water. The ambiance was a little lacking

During my last trip to the Big Island, we stopped at Ultimate Burgers to grab a quick bite before my friends were leaving the island. Service was fairly quick. Although the burger was tasty it was a bit underdone. Fries were delicious but serving size was much smaller than during my last stop at Ultimate Burger.

Do not let the strip mall mentality keep you from experiencing some great dining. Our burgers were delicious, hot and cooked perfectly. Loving the fact that they use locally sourced products and all of their sauces are homemade. Do not let the fact that this restaurant is in a strip mall be your deciding factor. While it is not a...

We live on the island, and drive in to Kona for shopping and so on. This is the place for a delicious fish sandwich, fries, and lemonade. The sauces are very good, the portions are great, the service is friendly and helpful. My friends who eat the beef burger say it's fabulous. Lots of local ingredients in everything, and a... More

Every time I've ever come here they've delivered exactly what I wanted...a great burger. A 5-napkin burger just the way I ordered it and exactly what I was hungry for. Best burger in town and a beer makes for a perfect afternoon. And we had a little fun cheering when they called my number. Burgers should need napkins and make... More
