“Great Burger "Dive" with grass-fed beef!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Casual, comfortable local bar/restaurant with fabulous grass-fed beef burgers. Excellent selection of toppings and combinations for the very juicy burgers that they serve. Good selection of beers. Great fries. Nice to hang out away from touristy places and loved finding good grass-fed beef. Must go if you like good burgers and want to kick back.

“Done to perfection.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

This is a little bar/restaurant, obviously frequented by locals. Don't come here looking for fancy, but if what you seek is a great burger, in a variety of disguises, done the way you want, this is the place. The teriyaki burger was delicious... done exactly the way I wanted. You really cab tell the difference with the local grass fed beef on the Island.... it just tastes better!

“Great food/atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

I'm not a big burger guy but I stopped here several times during my stay. Great burger/beer selection to go with a local college feel.

“Decent burger -- Ultimate burger on the Kona-Kailua side is much better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Fire and ice fries were excellent. Service was very good. Burgers were OK.
Kids burger sucked (it was one of those industrial patties...)

Prices were good so i would come again.
