“Real burgers with some twists”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Basically this is a drive-in or sit-down diner specializing in burgers but also serving up some local favorites. Although I'd mostly been doing my own cooking (thank you Friendly Market!) or sampling some of the finer fare (e.g., the Cookhouse), I stopped here for a quick take-out burger on the eve of Hurricane Flossie arriving, and eager to get home quick. It's conveniently located near the Wharf, next to Molokai Pizza (another quick food solution and favorite of locals doing home-made luaus on the wharf).

Burger with bacon and the works was reasonable-priced and very tasty, huge burger, no patty. I think I got it medium-well, but remember when I got home that I wasn't asked 'How do you want it?', so if you want it rare or med-rare, be sure to ask.

“Good food, great service”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Our family of six, ages ranging from 16 to 86 all enjoyed our meal here. What made it special was the excellent and personable service, and the kind locals who took the time to say hello and ask how we were enjoying our meal and our time on Molokai. One of the patrons told us that the food was 100% Molokai...I'm not sure if she meant the ingredients or the friendliness, but we sure enjoyed the complete package.

“Good pulled pork”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

It is a burger place. Thy often have pulled pork which is really good. Also good milkshakes. Portions are large. It is crowded at noon time. Friendly staff. There is not much on Molokai for food – so – you’re likely to try this place at least once.
