I kept hearing how "amazing" this place was prior to our trip, so I was a bit disappointed, but the burgers are good.

They have a good selection of unique burgers - things like teryaki, pineapple burgers, etc. - that are very good but quite expensive at about $8 each.

They've also got a good selection of milkshakes, fries and other sides.

One thing to be aware of: It takes about 20 minutes to get your food. After reading the Kauai guidebook, apparently this is a known fact, but we were a bit frustrated, as was the couple next to us, who went up the window to complain.

If you love burgers, check this place out, but otherwise I wouldn't recommend going out of your way.

Duane's has legitimately good burgers and fries. It's a no-nonsense business where you order what you want and get out of the way. Definitely worth the stop!

We went for a burger, and it was good. You have to wait for the food for a bit, but it was worth it. It is a roadside place next to a carry-out. At the carry-out, you can buy a beer if you want and have it with your burger. It is open-air seating on concrete block tables and seats by the road. However, the food was good. It is a local hang-out, so it must be good.

We just stopped at Duane's Ono Char-Burger, and I must say, it was an unexpected delight. It's not much to look at, but don't let the roadside dive looks fool you. It has a great little secluded patio and was the perfect stop on our travels to the north shore. The four of us had the Avacado Burger, the Teryaki Burger, the Swiss Burger, and the Duane's signature Burger. One word for each...Awesome. We did not expect the amazing flavors, variety and sumptuousness that each burger delivered. Hands-down, the best burgers in Kauai, and we have eaten at quite a few of the "recommended" burger joints.

We done Duane!

We ate with the chickens. Enjoyed out first teriyaki pineapple burger here. Wow yummy combo. We cook it regularly at home as we remember our trip
