When we travel, we look for the food places locals like to eat at. Our concierge tipped us off on this location and after a morning hike, we found this place in Anahola, which if you sneeze, you've passed it. We ordered up a couple burgers, sat with a few loitering chickens (if you've been to Kauai, you'll understand) and... More

My wife and I stopped here after an afternoon at Anini beach. We had a great late lunch on the outdoor picnic tables. The menu is simple but tasty and the food was inexpensive. We had the "Island Girl" burger and onions rings. Both were delicious!

We drove beyond Kapa'a just for cheeseburgers at this location. This is basically a take-out restaurant with limited picnic-style tables available next to it. We both ordered the cheeseburgers, mine with cheddar cheese and my husband's with swiss cheese. We shared the great onion rings. A couple of things to note---there are no public restrooms in the immediate area. You... More

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
