“Unusual burgers”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Good location, seedy atmosphere, excellent cocktail offerings, but burgers are the reason to come. Don't waste your time on a plain burger, go for the unusual. Couldn't finish our burgers, or even think about dessert. Great value for good food.

“Seems old, but the food is very good”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

The place is a little bit dark, but the food is amazing! They have very tasty burgers and the service is excellent! Besides that, they have beers on tap (from Kona brewing and other places) that are extremely delicious! Be sure to ask for the garlic french fries, the're out of this world!

“You've lost a regular customer”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

I live in Hilo and used to frequent the Burger Joint more than I would like to admit. Their Happy Hour draft beers at $3.00 a pint were (and still are a great deal). Service has always been a little variable, but the burgers and beer have worth the sometimes lousy service. A few weeks ago my wife and I showed up very hungry after a surf session dreaming of the California Burger and the Lava Burger. We were sat down, and after 30 minutes without getting water or menus and watching other groups get served first, we left. Yesterday we thought we'd give them another chance. The service was a little better even though we had to wait by the door for about 5 minutes until the guy playing guitar told us to go sit down. The hostess was chatting with a friend in the back. But the food was lousy. The avacado, which is the highlight of the California burger, was crunchy and carrot hard. The fries which are usually good home made cut potatoes were generic crinkle cut, and we were given hardly any. So, Hilo Burger Joint you've lost a regular customer
