We discovered this place when they first opened and have been coming back each time we visit Hawaii. Burgers are great, fries great, and you can get a beer if you choose. If you are not a beef eater, they have great Ahi Burgers and vegetarian option too. I have the Ahi, very tasty.

Burgers were great, 4 lava burgers and one ultimate burger were all delicious, the fries were excellent and the dipping sauce made the meal.

As a local I will say the food is decent but certainly not the best burger in town. It's a small place in a shopping center, no atmosphere, but beats a fast food joint in the area.

August 2016 vacation. We never miss going to Ultimate Burger when we come to the big Island. Usually the first stop after landing.

Probably the best burger I have ever had!! My whole family agreed that this burger joint was head and shoulders better than 5 guys or In N Out Burger hands down! Price was well below the quality of the product, at about 9 a burger. But the ahi fish burger was the best I have ever had😊 Fresh and delicious!... More

While the burgers are good (think Smashburger or Larkburger) it took 20 minutes from ordering the burger until it was delivered.

Cons: I asked for pink and there was no pink at all, fries were not as crispy as I would like, for size of burger it was a... More

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.

Thank Caezah
