Description: Ultimate Burger is a Locally Owned by Chef Makani, Big Island born and raised. Chef Makani created this "Quick-service" Burger restaurant catering to a broad spectrum of diners, including Vegetarian, Gluten-sensitive, and even Vegan guests. Ultimate Burger is known for being "with the times," serving Organic and local ingredients from the Big Island of Hawaii. Come taste the amazing fresh ground, grass fed Big Island Beef!!! Our music is not bad either! Ultimate burger features an open kitchen allowing guests to see the "magic" happen in the back of house. Priding themselves on teamwork, the UB crew is very quick and efficient, delivering freshly made Burgers cooked to order that are sure to delight, Don't forget to try the daily, freshly cut "Big Daddy Fries" served with Chef Makani's Citrus Aioli that's packed with flavor. From old fashioned to innovative Ultimate burger has it all.

All male staff, great service, good burgers. The fries are tastey, and crispy. Worth it when your craving beef. Follow the guy on the highway!

don't get me wrong, it was a fine burger. and the fries were really good. it's just after reading the reviews and having a friend rave about them, we were a little let down. good place and good service, but we didn't think it was anything special.

We came here for dinner, because a lot of people recommended it, and they serve fresh beef. Can't get any better than that. The burgers were delish, and the fries were amazing. Everything was definitely filling. It seems like a fast food restaurant, but its not like your mc donald's burgers. They were short staff, so we overheard from one of the staff, but the food didn't take long. However, the place was a bit messy from past patrons. The staff were friendly, attentive for a fast food sort of place, and were definitely trying hard to stay ahead of everything. Tey did a good job, and good food.

Just awesome! Went on vacation on the Big Island and found out about this place. All the locals rave about it. Fantastic burgers and fries. Fries are freshly cut, served with garlic mayo. Burgers are big and loaded with whatever you like. This is a definite must if you are in Kona.

We are new residents to Kona and wanted a good burger. What we got was a great burger. Everything was so fresh and the staff was very customer oriented, especially Wilson, the manager. This will definitely be a favorite stop for us!!
