“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Service was good, and the food was very good (hey it's road side stand, not a five star restaurant). It is always fun to pick a menu item that you will never find anywhere else; and they have a large selection that you will not find anywhere else.

“a must stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

this roadside hole in the wall is always busy and with good reason. it is nothing to look at but it has the best burgers and chicken fingers on the island. there is very little seating outside. you give your order at a small window and then they call your name when the food is ready. everything is made to order so it is fresh, hot, and most of all tasty. you can eat at a table if u find one or you can get the food "to go" and picnic in your car or elsewhere.

“Ono Means Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Ono Burger is a little takeout shack at the side of the road in the Anahola area of the Eastern Shore of Kauai. It is in the same spot as the well known Whalers General Store. They make a wide variety of unusual burgers with local touches and if a slice of pineapple or teriyaki sauce is not for you then stay with the good old fashioned cheeseburger. The food is all cooked to order and don't expect fast service. I would suggest you take the food out to a nearby beach or park as the outdoor eating area is not up to much and you will be bothered by birds and wild chickens who have learned to beg for food. This is good local food at its best and the proof of that is the place is almost overwhelmed at lunchtime by local's takeout orders. They routinely cut the large fat burgers in half so if you want to eat yours in one piece be sure to order it that way. Enjoy.

“Our Kauai tradition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

This is really the best burger place on Kauai. We try to go there at least once each time we are on Kauai. They are really just a hole in the wall but they make excellent burgers and their fries are great. We ordered their classic cheeseburgers (mine had cheddar) and they were just what we were craving. I don't think you'll find a better burger on the island. The chickens were a problem as they were all over the outside tables, we chose to eat in the car to avoid them (and their poop) If you don't mind eating somewhere else or in your car I would recommend them!
