“Surprisingly fantastic!”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

Hubbie likes a simple burger, and it was done flawlessly! I could have used a little more of the 60 minute onions on my burger, but it was great as it was. Worth the drive!!!

“Very good burgers and kids liked the shakes”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

Counter service and customers can eat at the tables on the sidewalk or in the adjacent food court.

Two adults and two teens got burgers, split 2 fries (really DH had his own and the kids and I split the Parmesan fries - messy and good) and the kids got shakes they enjoyed. The burgers are really, really flavorful and very large! We visited on our last day on the island or we would have gone back. Yummy!

“Burger Nirvana!”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Who would have thought that we would find the best burgers in the world in a small burger joint on the Big Island of Hawaii! We had a Waipio Valley Tour scheduled for early afternoon, coming from the Hilo side of the island. We read the great reviews about this place on Trip Advisor, and went out of our way to have lunch here, as it is not close to the tour (about 45 min away). It s a huge understatement that it was worth the trip!

We literally inhaled our burgers and fries, looked at each other and thought we died and went to burger heaven! These aren’t just good, they are without a doubt the best burgers we’ve ever had! Everything they serve is locally grown, the meat is hormone and antibiotic-free, freshly ground and hand-made daily. We had the “Hawaii Big Island Beef Burger” which is a mix of chuck and brisket. They also offer veal and Waygu burgers. The fries are no slouch either, freshly hand cut and super delicious. Our only disappointment was we were so sorry were weren’t near that location; we would have gone back again in a heartbeat.

This place was voted as one of USA Today’s 51 greatest burger joints of 2010. It is located in the Parker Ranch Center. They are considered to be part of the food court, but also have an outside entrance. It’s a small place, not a lot of ambiance, but that is where we have had some of our best meals, and this one is at the top. We thought they were reasonably priced, as Hawaii prices go, and would have paid more for that kind of quality and taste. They have lots of interesting toppings, but honestly these burgers don’t need any help as they are incredible all by themselves! The portions are generous as the burgers are large for the price, and one order of fries is plenty for two people. We waited about 10 minutes for our burgers (this is not fast food), and believe me, it’s worth the wait!

Make this a must stop on the Big Island – it will be a gourmet experience you’ll never forget!

“VERY GOOD FOOD”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Village Burger is one of my family's favorite places to eat. We live nearby and come here at least once a week. The food and service is top notch. They offer vegetarian and gluten free meals as well. Their milkshakes are the best! I highly recommend eating here.
