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

The burgers were great and I loved the homemade lemonade as well. Unfortunately, one third of shoestring fries were overcooked skins. That is the only reason why I cannot give 5 star rating... We were in a hurry so no time to send it back. I am sure they would have replaced them.

This place is in a shopping mall not far from Ali'i Drive in Kona. It is well worth a stop for lunch. They make burgers to order and have unbelievably delicious "ultimate" fries. Their homemade sauce for the burgers, brioche bun and aioli sauce served with the fries makes this a meal that puts Five Guys to shame. Sorry, Five... More

This is indeed the ultimate burger. You know it's special even before you take a bite. The aroma of charbroiled beef hits you before the burger even makes it to your mouth. Perfect. It will give you flashbacks to childhood backyard barbecues. And that's just the start of a great hamburger. Worth a stop. The downside is coming home to... More

Excellent burgers, fries and excellent service. What more can you ask for? Has a fast-casual feel rather than fast food.

Love this place! Their lava burgers and fish sandwiches are my favorite. Especially since they get their fish fresh from local fisherman and serve local beef! Really can't get better than that. They've also got an awesome art display of the islands made out of recycled bottles caps from locals. Gotta resist coming everyday :)

Somewhat disappointed by the quality. I heard a lot about this restaurant, but if I return this will not be on list of places to eat.
