We still cannot believe we ate a burger in Hawaii!! My family prefers eating a lot of fish when on the island. The beef burger had a ton of flavor! We ordered a Mahi Mahi burger, cheeseburger, & one original burger. The burger cost $7 and the fish burger was $12. The garlic fries were extra at $4. One basket... More

My Lava Burger was okay not outstanding, a generous size moist and tasty beef with pickles, onions, jalapeños and some spicy sauce on a bun. The crispy fries were very nice and served with a nice garlicky sauce. For a lava burger, cheeseburger, fries and drinks we paid almost $30.

the old cliché is true, do one thing and do it well. We were on our way on a red back to the mainland and were happy to find this place. Set in a strip mall from anywhere USA, I was surprised to find a great burger. The grass feed beef is wonderful, seasoned fries with just the right flavor,... More

The burger was very tasty. The meat was very good. If ordered well done, it will still have some pink. The fries were very yummy....especially the sauce. A good taste of local Hawaiian fast food. We just weren't pleased with the attitude and cleanliness of one young man. The gals were great though.

Its a small place, but very friendly. The food is a good bargain (for Hawaii) and the burgers are large enough to share. We always order the garlic fries with aioli sauce. Wish the offered better beer selection.

If you like quality food like grass fed beef, hand cut fries and healthy oils then this place is for you! Food tasted excellent. Service friendly not over the top. And best of all price is not sky high like everything else on the island. We will definitely head back during our visits to the island.

Great burger selection and the burgers we had were awesome! Fries are well cooked, veggies, pickles and such are all fresh and crispy. I had the lava burger and was just the right amount of spicy. However, be prepared to wait up to 30 minutes for your burger to be ready, especially when it's during the typical meal time.

This is by no means fine dining, but neither is it fast food. Its cheap and cheerful, but the food is outstandingly good and tasty. The vegetarian choice was absolutely delicious too. If all you want is great tasting food at a really good price you cant beat this place.

I thought about deducting a star for the strip mall location and lack of atmosphere, but the burgers are so good they deserve the five on their own. My wife and I have been here a few times and we're never disappointed. I do find the concept of serving only one type of beer a little strange, but they change... More
