Inexpensive option for a good meal. Burgers are great and the fries are incredible. 2 burgers and an order of fries is about $23. I also highly recommend the fish and chips.

We stopped here from breakfast before going to the airport. Pretty good prices and portions for Hawaii and they make a good Loco Moco. Seating is very limited so to go may be the best option.

Locals frequent this burger stand and sit in the open air patio upstairs to view the surfers on Kalapaki bay and scarf generous portions of half a dozen different burgers, taro fries, milk shakes and smoothies.

We hit it for all three over the span of 10 days. Basically nothing is over $10….but forget about the price, the food is just that good. Whether it be an omelette – Portuguese sausage is a favorite; the French toast or a burger –...More
