This place is a gem. We stopped by on our way back into Kailua-Kona and boy was that a good choice. It is just north of town and the food was first rate. The buns were delicious and the burger was cooked to MR perfection....More

Away from the Kona waterfront in a strip mall is a great burger place. Many options including vegan. Everyone was happy.

Stopped in for a burger before heading to the airport. It was great! Price was a little high but the quality of ingredients was apparent. Lots of choices for toppings. Fries and sauce also were delicious. Highly recommended

We have eaten here three times now in the week that we've been on the Big Island. The hamburgers are delicious, but the fish sandwich is absolutely amazing. Thin crispy french fries round out the meal. The buns are soft brioche style, and the burgers...More

I can't remember for sure, but they might. I would call and see what they have to offer. I like a lettuce wrapped burger sometimes when I am cutting the carbs. Their salads looked great too.
