We like Bubba's because the menu is simple and the food is usually very good, hot right off the grill.

The onion rings are excellent, but the quantity seems to fluctuate a little from visit to visit. When we were there Super bowl Sunday, the quantity was very good.

Some reviews have criticized Bubba's for being expensive, but we don't think they understand that the beef used in their burgers is produced on Kauai, so it is fresh.

A couple of surprising observations.
1) It appeared several members of the staff were just finishing their shift. They pulled out a beer and sat down at the bar to watch the Big Game. Was just surprised they were still "In Uniform" and sitting at the bar drinking. Had we not seen them finish their shift, one might have concluded they were drinking on the job.
2) The real surprise was the cook who was observed out back rolling a joint and smoking it. This might explain the generous amount of Onion Rings we received this visit. Each to his or her own, but probably not something I would do at work.

Will visit a Bubba location for another great burger next time we're near one.

Great place for a burger, fires and a shake. Quick, friendly service and great prices. Plenty of seating inside or outside.

Cute little restaurant in the nice little town of Kaapa. The prices were really good comparatively. The service was friendly and fast by Hawaiian standards. The onion rings were really great!

Still not quite up to full meals, we stopped late afternoon to grab a little something. The shakes were thick and flavorful and the fries were good and they had various sauces to dip them in. Loved that they had malt vinegar. Enjoyed sitting on the porch and people/car watching too!
