“Great fresh food - try their milkshakes!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Our family of four drove through the Waimea area after doing a zipline tour on the northern part of the island. Because we were sweaty and a bit grubby we didn't really want to go anywhere too "nice"; however, we are strictly NOT fast food people, so we were a little hesitant to go here at first because it looks like a typical mall joint. But happy to say everyone really enjoyed it! My hubby and older daughter went for the Ahi Burger and my younger daughter and I both ordered the Keiki burger, which is only 5 ounces of meat instead of 6.5. Afterwards we shared two delicious milkshakes (one strawberry and one chocolate). They will cheerfully serve the milkshakes in two smaller cups so you can share. As others have noted, this place is not cheap, but it's good quality, local food and very tasty.

“Great Burgers”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

When we drove up, the first thought that I had is this the right place? It looks like a typical mall food court restaurant. Don't let the appearance fool you, this is one of the best burger joints out there. The prices are on the steep side, but the quality of the beef is outstanding. You get that full beefy flavor. My wife had the lamb burger, it was very good too. Make sure you try a strawberry shake - excellent.

“What a juicy burger!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Pass by the fast food chains nearby and head for Village Burger in the Parker Center. Sure, it's more expensive but you'll get get a great meal. The Paniolo (cowboy) burger had pineapple BBQ sauce and a crispy fried onion ring along with the standard lettuce, tomato and mayo. Cheese not needed! The fresh cut fries are delicious and enough for two to share. We opted for the wasabi mayo on the side and it would also have been great on the burger if we hadn't scooped up every bit with the fries. Something for everyone in the adjoining food court from pizza to Chinese. And nice clean restrooms, too.

“A tad pricey, but great burgers”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

A tad pricey, but you'll never have such a fresh burger. The French Fries were delicious, they offer gourmet sodas, and you can eat outdoors.

“Awesome... we are craving "Village Burger"”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Sorry it took so long to write a review. As we have now returned to our regular life, we have found no burgers that compare to yours! Your burgers alone give me excuse enough for another Hawaii trip. We ate there three times during our April visit to the Big Island. Once was definitely not enough! We both appreciated the freshest of fresh local ingredients and the creativity put into the burger varieties. Thank you.
