This is a great place to stop for lunch when in Kauai. It was a little slow but worth the wait. Great value in a place where most everything is priced high.

Burgers and onion rings taste great, but then again what doesn't taste good when you are on the side of the road in Kauai with chickens running around ? Food really is good, nice little covered outdoor eating area, chickens pretty polite. Favorite of the locals , a nice little stop when driving towards Hanalei. Try it for the total... More

A porter at the Maui airport told us to stop here on our way out to Princeville. We probably wouldn't have even noticed this little hut if we weren't looking for it. We each had a different burger and they were all delicious! ! I'm not a big onion ring fan, but theirs were amazing!! Three if us ate for... More

You may have thought Anahola was only famous for its granola. Well oh no try burger is even more famous. This small stand in the middle of the road between Kapaa and Kilauea serves more hamburgers than quite possibly any other place on the island! You may get it to go, or sit in the shade with the chickens surrounding... More

Stopped here for lunch on our way to the north shore when we arrived on Kauai. We were craving a burger. The burgers ARE great. We had a Duane's Special and a regular cheeseburger, and split an order of fries. Thankfully some of the tables have umbrellas because it rained while we were waiting. I'd read comments of long waits,... More

Been here a few dozen times over the years--could not wait to go back---fries tasted like chicken fat in them and iced tea had that metallic taste that happens when commercial places put hot tea into stainless steel too soon and the acids in the tea picks up the steel taste; Burger was mid-ling; I know they usually do better!...

The tangy flavor of the teriyaki sauce with the sweet pinapple is a great combination, and I've always been a fan of Swiss cheese. Definitely worth the price!

Great place for a quick bite to eat! Made to order and tasty! Lots of roosters waiting around for you to drop food, so watch out!

The burgers here could be quite ordinary as they buy their patties preformed from Kola Provisions, but Duane manages to zip then up to some very flavorful burgers. Our favorite is Duane's Special loaded - did I say loaded - with sprouts, cheese, grilled onions, his special sauce, lettuce, tomato, pickles, etc. that is simply deliciously unique. They offer very... More
