We stopped by for lunch and loved the grass fed beef burgers. We got here around noon on a Saturday. The place was busy but our wait was only 15 minutes. That is for the 18 orders to be served prior to ours. The burgers and fries are still great. This has been our scheduled stop on every visit. Great... More

I had heard many good reports about Ultimate Burger hower the day we went I felt very dissapointed. Service was good, friemdly amd quick. The burger was average, nothing special, but what dissapointed me the most was the filthy condition of the dining area.

Best fries anywhere. Homemade fries & buns. meat fresh not frozen. Only complaint is music inside often too loud & forces us to outside tables.

Stopped and grab lunch here a couple times either on our way to Target or before afternoon activities. It is in a strip mall. Serves local beef hamburgers. Buns and toppings very fresh. Can add pineapple or Hawaiian avocado. French fries were thin and crispy. First visit was better than second, but overall a nice place to grab a quick... More

It's hit and miss with this place. You can chose from their menu or build your own burger. We love the organic grass fed biff and tasty buns, yet sometimes the food just does not taste that good for some reason. I guess, it depends on a cook. The fries are too thin to my liking. They used to have... More

Grass fed local beef, organic vegies and cheeses, homemade buns.... sounds like a winner. Unfortunately our burgers were overcooked. We both had the ultimate cheese - I had the gargonzola which was good but not quite enough of it to hide the overcooked burger taste. My burger was hard to chew. As we were leaving the manager (?) asked us... More

We were very disappointed in the burgers. They were very over cooked and not juicy at all. When we mentioned this to the person cleaning the tables he said that the person taking our order should have asked us how we wanted our burgers cooked - she did not! Not impressed! Will not be back!

The burgers we had were fresh and tasty along with the fries. Maybe a little small for the price though this could be normal here.

When we visit Hawi, at the northern tip of the Big Island, we take at least one trip down to Kailua Kona for a variety of reasons, one being to lunch at Ultimate Burger. Perhaps my only and certainly my best burger of the year. It is a small place in a strip center, nothing special from an appearance or... More
