I'm a burger snob. I also live in Waikoloa Village part time, so having a good place to eat and drink and walk home is a already a big win.
But then, to my great joy, a burger worthy of its price and in a place that is not just a good place to eat...a GREAT place to eat...full bar, open late, carefully selected wine list, local fresh ingredients, FRESH PASTA (watched Chef making from my bar seat...that's dinner and a show for a foodie.) Above all else, not pretentious or fancy!!!
Now for the burger...the Tuscan Burger..SOOOO messy but sooooo yummy....local beef, bruschetta tomatoes, balsamic onions, provolone,fresh baked bun, house-made tuscan fries with spicy garlic chile aiol. Winner! For the record, I am a huge fan of Village Burger in Waimea (theirs topped with chipotle goat cheese and wasabi mayo...gets me every time.) However, VB has been bested for best burger on the island. Thank you Chef Babian!
