I am not a huge fan of their burgers, apparently others were not either since this spot it gone, but they did have a great turkey burger. So, if there are any Kahuna grills left and you are in the mood for a turkey burger,...More

We love coming here on a lazy Sunday afternoon for lunch before we go next door for a movie. Burgers are always good. But my favorite is the portobello sandwich. Always good people watching from the outdoor tables. AND it's locally owned!

In Paso Nuevo this hole in the wall has some of the best burgers you'll ever put in your whole mouth. Plan on going again tomorrow for the "combine your own" milk shakes. Pineapple and cocoanut has left a mark that cannot be erased. You...More

Nice little burger joint that the kids loved. The service was great and the food was good. We spent about $41.00 for a family of 4. Will stop by again when we are in town :)

This was one of our favorite lunch place. Great ambiance throughout the year. The food taste is always good. I have tried everything on their menu and I would recommend the fish sandwich. Keep up the good work guys.

The Chicken Terriyaki, Portabello Burger and Sweet Potato Fries were ALL just simply amazing. Generous portions, delicious sauces (kinda messy, but in a fun, juicy, delicious way!) and mouth-watering aromas. It was a late lunch (3pm) on a weekday and well worth having to park...More
