We happened to drive by Bubba's and stopped for lunch. The atmosphere was very laid back and it was nice to sit outside. The burgers were really fresh and so were the fries/onion rings. For a cheap and easy lunch, this was a great place...More

Located in the charming town of Hanalei, this burger joint was a bit of a letdown. The burgers weren't anything special (think thin McDonald's-type patties), fries were good enough and the chocolate milkshake was weak - thin, runny and not very flavorful. The covered picnic...More

ehhh nothing to write home about. Over priced and not very tasty. Waited for ever for a burger. Go across the street to L&L for a better burger at 1/3 the price

Great place for a quick bite. Their burgers are small, but cheap. The meat quality and flavors are great. I'd recommend getting a double if you're even remotely hungry though. The staff was friendly and helpful. The teriyaki burgers are great!

Okay ... it's a dive drilling burgers in a generally rainy place that is better known as the home for Puff the Magic Dragon. But you GOTTA eat a Bubba's. Just know ... they won't REALLY cheat you (unless you're jerk ... or an attorney)....More

You spend lots of money getting to Kauai, stay in fancy hotels, visit all the tourist places, but there comes a time to have an outstanding burger. So Stop When You See That Sign!! There's three locations, but I love the one in Hanalei. It...More
