Love this place! When we come here, I almost always have the Ortega Chicken Sandwich, which includes a nice big chicken breast with Jack cheese and Ortega chiles, plus their special sauce and lettuce etc. on toasted sourdough - yum! They also have a great pulled pork sandwich, sweet potato fries, salads, Hawaiian style burgers, root beer floats....etc.....and they'll wrap... More

Kahuna Grill has a fantastic Kona Hamburger, with pineapple slices, cheese, and fixings! Their onion rings are also really good! Enjoy

This place serves a decent variety of burgers and other hot grill-type sandwiches and items (Chicken, Fish, etc). Everything here is pretty average -- not bad but nothing you'd go out of your way to try. Its main strength is its location, being right in the middle of the "big box" shopping center. But if I want to go somewhere... More

Great burgers, larger than average patty size & they have vegetarian patty too. I had the cobb salad which is popular and was a good choice with green leaf lettuce. Their fries are very good & they have sweet potato fries too. The chicken sandwich on the chibata was warm & very good. I had half of my daughter's and... More

I just love Kahuna's turkey burgers. This has a funky atmosphere. You can sit inside or outside. I prefer the outside in good weather. Great people watching

The burgers are so great that it took a long time before I tried something else off the menu. The salads are fresh and crisp and are truly a substitute for the fries or awesome onions rings. The teriaki chicken plate is so good because the chicken is well flavored AND the rice is GOOD. The rice isn't just a... More

First of all the location is in a great place in Goleta, near shopping and Costco. We drove up from Santa Barbara and it's well worth the trip. The burgers and fish burgers are wonderful and if you are lucky enough to bring a child their kids' menu is reasonable and terrific! The staff is super friendly and the condiment... More

The best burgers in Goleta. Limited menu, but still a good choice. Free fries and a drink after 5 pm on Wednesday. What a bargain. The friendliest service in all of Goleta. Great condiment bar with BBQ sauce, pickles, peppers and more. Great atmosphere too.

This place has among the best hamburgers in SB hands down. The Ortega Chile Cheeseburger is particularly good. Highly recommended. Both the unit in Goleta and the one downtown SB in Paseo Nuevo are good!
