After leaving the winery we stepped across the road to Ulupalakua Ranch Store & Grill. The interior of the store is superb. There's a great rocking chair outside with a sign on the exterior wall saying "Road to Hana recovery station" which is a fun...More

The beef hamburgers are worth the long and twisty scenic drive (lots of curves, so take your time and pay attention to the road, especially if it's raining). I even overhead a family from Australia comment on how good the burgers were, and they're from...More

Ulupalakua is a long drive from the hotel/resort areas, but if you find yourself in the area at or around lunchtime, it's worth it to stay for the lanai bbq and more specifically for the elk or lamb burgers. The ranch keeps herds of both...More

This place offers choices -- not just your normal burger place. They have lamb, elk and venison along with their beef burger. All are raised/caught on the property. Each is grilled outside and comes with onions (raw or grilled), lettuce, pickles and tomato. When you...More

When you come on up to visit us at Ulupalakua, you'll find it's not just about the drive. These days, it's about the food. "We're becoming a food destination," says Will Munder, Executive Chef of Ulupalakua Ranch Store & Grill. Mosey up to the counter, and you'll still find all the classic Ranch favorites, but the good stuff just got better. Now everything is made from scratch and as local as we can get it. The Ulupalakua lamb, beef and famous elk are part of our commitment to serve only meat from the Ranch or from Maui. And thanks to Upcountry's abundance. The bustling Grill gets crates of fresh local lettuce, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, pineapple, herbs and more, every morning.

Reminders of times gone by are everywhere inside the Ulupalakua Store, from the sepia-toned photos on the walls to the cowboy hats on the shelves. The Store is a happy place of simple things, good things. Our motto here at Ulupalakua Ranch is: "Happy People." Plain and simple.
