The fried were good, but my burger was soggy from the sauce that was with the flavor I got. The meat tasted good on its own, and if I had to do it over I would probably just get a regular cheeseburger.

They have the option to substitute a garden burger for any specialty burger on the menu. No extra charge. Great BBQ sauce. French Fries were awesome. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would eat there again for sure.

The burger menu is extensive, and the burgers are amazing! I had one with goat cheese, a beet, and arugula. OMG. Good beer menu too. The best part? A bacon brownie for dessert! This place feels very local and low key. This would be my go-to spot if I lived in Hilo.

Not only was the burger (big island beef) juicy and wonderful flavor but they offered interesting combinations. I had the blue cheese burger served on a bed of lettuce. It was great. Good service too
